Daniel Bamonte Jr., of Harrison, took his last breath and was finally at peace on October 30, 2023. Daniel was born on April 18, 1945 to Marian (Grome) and Daniel Bamonte. He graduated from Purcell High School then joined the Marine Corps, serving from 1965 - 1967 and having 1 yr, 1 month and 11 days in foreign service during Vietnam.
Daniel met Kathleen Hurd and didn't wait around to let someone else snatch her up... they were married on Feb. 3, 1968, (9 weeks after proposing and 13 weeks after meeting each other) and she was the love of his life. He enrolled in the University of Cincinnati and attended Xavier University. During this busy time of life Dan and Kathy welcomed 5 children: Gina, Daniel III, Anthony, Nicholas and Mario. Dan and Kathy made their home in Harrison, where Dan taught and coached football, track, & wrestling at William Henry Harrison High School, and Winton Woods. Service was his mission and he was an asset to the community. Dan helped many students and athletes achieve dreams of going to college and he enjoyed hearing where students ended up in life. Dan will be dearly missed and life will never be the same for his family.
Those left to cherish all of the wonderful memories are his loving wife: Kathleen Ann (Hurd) Bamonte; children: Gina (Jeff) Kerth, Daniel Dominic (Ingrid Jansen) Bamonte III, Anthony (Stephanie) Bamonte, Nicholas (Heather Turner) Bamonte, and Mario (Emily ) Bamonte; cherished 11 grandchildren:Marcus Dominic (Nikki Bray) Martin, Carrie Martin, Samantha Kerth, Angela (Alexis) Gabbard, Anna Kerth, Vincent Bamonte, Giovanna Jensen Bamonte, Maristella and Tazio Bamonte, and twins: Rocco and Isabella Bamonte and bonus grandchildren: Cameron and Juliette; 12 great grandchildren: Riley, Braiden, Brandon, Skylar, Gia, Amyia, Neveyah Arlo, Katelyn, James, Margaret "Maggy", and Mark.
