My brother Robert Bisesto, 53 passed away peacefully on September 3, 2013 after battling cancer for over two years.
Robert was born in the Bronx on 5/16/1960 and later moved to Yonkers where he went to school and then settled in Lake Carmel, New York. He married Cathy in October of 1988 and would have been married 25 years.
Those who knew Robert understood his extreme work ethic, love of The Jets and motorcycles and always a good steak on the grill. He was a warrior, one that would jump through flames for his family and for his friends who called him “Bubba”.
Robert is survived by his wife Catherine, mother Carol and step father Frank Lettera of Cortlandt Manor, father Raymond Bisesto of Port St Lucie, Florida, sister and brother-in-law, Donna and Robert Schmidt of New City and brother, Rick Bisesto of Norwalk, CT., also his nephew Jesse and niece Rebecca Schmidt.
We will miss Robert terribly here on earth, but know to our core, that he is now healthy, happy and for sure teasing some other spirit and telling awesome jokes in the forever place where his soul landed—with a beer in one hand and a sausage and pepper hero in the other.

Very nice Donna…a nice tribute to him. I will miss him. I am so happy that he hopped on a plane to come down and stayed with me a few days. So happy he got to see Nanny. When he was here I had my first Mojito…every time I have one I think of him…now even more so! I miss him. He fought hard and now he is in peace. God Bless Him. Aunt Linda
