Passion To Dance
Story By Maryanne Moon Boyen
Angelo Bonasera was ahead of his time.
In the early 1970s, before it was culturally commonplace to eat on the run, Angelo grabbed a bite to eat quickly three nights a week, so that he could drive his teenage daughter, Donna, to dance class in Hartford. Though he had already driven two hours round trip to Pratt & Whitney in Windsor Locks for work, he never balked at another two hour journey to bring Donna from their Torrington home to the Hartford Conservatory.
Angelo was the only adult driver in the family of four and he was glad to help his youngest daughter follow her heart.
