The family of State Sen. Anthony R. Bucco (R-Boonton) has announced that a remembrance service for the longtime State Senator will be held on Sunday, October 6 at 2 PM at the County College of Morris Student Center Auditorium in Randolph.

Bucco, who spent more than 40 years in public office, died on Monday after suffering a massive heart attack.  He was 81.

A private visitation for close family and friends will be held on Friday at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel R.C. Church in Boonton from 10-11:45 AM, followed by a private funeral Mass at noon.

Arrangements are being coordinated by the Dangler Lewis and Carey Funeral Home in Boonton.

In lieu of flowers, the Bucco family has asked that donations in memory of the former Senator be made to the Boonton Kiwanis First Aid Squad, P.O. Box 16, Boonton, NJ 07005, or to the Boonton Fire Department.

Bucco represented the 25th district in the New Jersey Senate from 1998 until his death on Monday evening.  He previously spent three years in the State Assembly and four years as a Morris County Freeholder.   He began his political career by winning election as a Boonton Alderman in 1977 and became Mayor in 1983.
