James “Buddy” Manzella, of Yonkers, NY, passed away on December 9, 2020. He was 78. He was pre-deceased by his parents James and Anne Manzella and his sister Minifred Manzella.

Buddy, as he was more commonly known, was the loving husband, for 53 years, of Barbara Ruggeri Manzella, who he loved and adored. He is survived by his son Jimmy (wife Summer) and daughter Carolanne Duran (husband Roger) and grandchildren Matthew, Michael, and Marissa, who he would give the world to.

Buddy was a Teamster for over 50 years and was a diehard NY Yankees and NY Giants fan as well as a fan of “The Sopranos” and all things Mafia related. He will never be forgotten as the greatest husband and father anyone could ask for.

Please respect our privacy as there will be a family only burial at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, where he will rest in peace along with his grandparents Richard and Winifred Roche and his sister Winifred Manzella.
