Please share a memory of Sebastian to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Sebastian "Buster" Fiacco, Jr., 67 of Binghamton passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, January 5, 2023 at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton. He was born at Lourdes on September 20, 1955 to Sebastian "Buster" Fiacco, Sr. and Mary (Vallone) Fiacco. Buster is survived by his loving wife of 17 years, Danita (Eartly) Fiacco and their children Cara, Matthew and Sarah. Buster was a graduate of Binghamton North High School, Broome Community College and SUNY Empire. He began his work career at 17 yrs of age at Ken Wilson Chevrolet for 17 years then NYSEG for 11 years, Milton Caterpillar for 14 years and at his passing, he was employed as General Manager at Gary's U-Pull-It. Buster was a very dedicated Catholic and member of St. Thomas Aquinas Parish where he served as Parish Pastoral Council Co-Chair, lector and member of the Holy Name Society. He was also a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus #206 and served on the Board for P.A.L. Camp. Buster was an amazing husband, father, son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend who seemed to have an unconditional love for everyone he knew. He was always kind, considerate, caring and Christ-Like to everyone he encountered. He had unlimited patience, compassion and forgiveness, and he always placed everyone before himself. When complimenting him on his strengths and accomplishments, being the humble person he was, he always attributed these qualities to the Grace of God. Buster was the "go to" guy for anything and everything. Some of his strongest character values in life were to be a good neighbor, maintain a strong work ethic and to do his best at everything he pursued. Buster enjoyed hosting and attending family gatherings, fishing, hunting and golf. Visits to the Jameson Farm in South Carolina and to the Green Shingle Lodge with his son and long-time fishing buddies in Canada were exceptionally close to his heart. His greatest passion in life was his family, their activities and simply, their presence. He had an extraordinary positive attitude toward life and used his hardships, including the loss of his first wife, Susan, Mother to Cara and Matthew at their young ages, to strengthen his Faith. Buster will be dearly missed by many.
