James D. Stento, Beloved husband, father, papa, brother, uncle and friend went to be with the Lord on June 17, 2022 surrounded by his loved ones. Jim was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and  Mary  Stento, his wife Joan Hill  Stento, sister Rosemary Stento and brother Anthony Stento.  On September 16th, 1961 he married the love of his life, Joan.  He is survived by his five beautiful children, Michael Ondrusek (Buffalo, NY), Joseph (Joy Carr) Stento (Binghamton, NY), Kara (Wesley) Shear (Johnson City, NY), Alison Stento (Binghamton, NY) and Christopher (Pamela) Stento (Endicott, NY).  He was also blessed with nine grandchildren, Jake Ondrusek, Grant Stento, Angela (Joseph) Nocciolino, Erica Yanowiak, Jessica Shear, Kathryn Hollon, Michael (Krista) Stento, Victoria Stento, Jacob Stento, and one great granddaughter, Jade Stento. Also surviving is his brother, Rocco Stento (Binghamton, NY). Jim attended Binghamton Central  High School and served in the United States Army. He worked construction for many years before joining the Binghamton Fire Department where he ultimately retired after a twenty year career. Post retirement, his greatest joy was spending time with his family.  An avid Giants, Yankees, Knicks and ‘Cuse fan, he rarely missed a game from his favorite recliner chair.  He also enjoyed the simple pleasures of his community including his favorite diners, trips to Wegmans and The Sons of Italy. A Funeral Mass will be offered on Wednesday at 1pm at St. Vincent DePaul /Blessed Sacrament Church 465 Clubhouse Road Vestal. The family will receive friends on Wednesday from 11am until the time of the Mass at the church.
