He was the beloved husband of Geraldine (Bombardier) McCurley, to whom he was married to for the past fifty-six years.

Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, a son of the late John Bono and Agnes McLeren, he had lived in North Providence for the past forty-seven years. He was a graduate of Johnson & Wales University, earning his Associate's Degree in Business.

His legacy is defined by the strong emphasis he placed on family values and the enduring love he shared with those around him.
