Donald Bishop Tribute

STRATFORD- Donald L. Bishop, also know as “DLB”, entered the gates of Heaven on July 7, 2021 at 11:30 pm. He took his final breath & Jesus took him home. 

Don was retired & loving it. He spent his days with his wife Bonnie who was also his best friend & high school sweetheart. They were married for 53 years & so very much in love to this day! He worked for the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation (D.O.T) for over 30 years.  Don was a lifelong member of the “Huns” Motorcycle Club. He loved riding his Harley. He also enjoyed playing pool & bowling. His door was always open for his family & friends, especially the Stratford Ave. crew who remained friends for over 50 years. They would come to Indian Ave. where he had food, music & an open bar. He loved his Mowtown music & was a die hard Yankee fan.

Don was very spiritual & loved God with all his heart. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather & great grandfather. He will be dearly missed. He leaves behind a wife Bonita Bishop, daughter Lorie Bishop, daughter Donna DiStassio & son in law Anthony DiStassio, his granddaughter Danielle Sicsico, grandson Shaun Sicsico & great granddaughter Genelle Sicsico & many nieces & nephews.

The family wants to thank his sister in law Nancy Barlosky who was a big part of the last days of his life. She was steadfast in praying for Don & her church stayed faithful. They were prayer warriors and helped us get through this great loss! He was predeceased by his parents Jean & Donald Bishop, grandmother Mildred Bishop, brother Ronald Bishop, brother in law Tommy Barlosky, mother in law Margaret Barlosky & grandson Robert Donald Sicsico, and also Robert Sicsico Sr. who was very special to Don.
