Thomas Frank Bisanzo, 76, Founded Bruce Park Sports

Thomas Frank Bisanzo, 76, of Greenwich passed away on July 7, 2022.

Son to the late Frank (Ace) and Rose Bisanzo, Tom grew up in Chickahominy, graduated from Greenwich High School, and subsequently the University of Memphis.

In 1971, at the age of 24, Tom opened Bruce Park Sports in the heart of Greenwich, where he served as a staple of the community for 51 years. Tom was consistent, you could find him at his store everyday at 6:00am, until his last. He loved all things sports and all of the lessons that came with it. He instilled teamwork, hard work and being a good person in all of his kids, of whom he wouldn’t shy away from telling store-goers how proud of them he was. He recently became a grandfather and in his words, was “tickled pink” at the thought of teaching his two grandsons golf or how to slide into home plate on the kitchen floor.

Tom’s world was turned upside down in 1979 when he met Sue, who quickly became the brightest light in his life. They were engaged 9 months later, married for 41 years and raised a loving home for 4 children. He was the ultimate family man, the true moral compass to everyone that knew him intimately. He celebrated everyone’s wins and milestones, while having a knack for saying the perfect thing in difficult situations, even if it meant sharing the same story you had heard from him ten times over.

Tom is survived by his wife, Sue; children, Mark (Megan), Catherine (Ben), Gigi (Ariel) and Chris; grandsons, Jack Thomas and Joey Ace; sister, Terry; and many many Bisanzo, DeAngelo and Robben relatives.
