Attorney Angelo Buoscio was passionate about his profession, his daughter Christine McCall said.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania who received his law degree from Valparaiso University, Buoscio, 74, of Crown Point, came from a family of lawyers, with cousins and an uncle who are attorneys and judges, she said.
“Dad was licensed to practice in Indiana and Illinois in 1963, the same year he married my mother,” McCall said. “He was passionate about the law and his work. He loved the people. He went into mediation in his later years and really liked that.”
Buoscio was an active member of Sigma Chi and Phi Alpha Delta fraternities and a member and officer of the Elks Lodge in Hobart.
A partner in the law firm of Buoscio, Pera & Krammer, Buoscio was a charter member of the Illinois State Bar Association, the Federal Bar Association and the Indiana State Bar Association. A founder and past president of the Lake County Bar Association, American Inns of Court, Calumet Chapter, Buoscio was on the Lake County Nominating Judicial Committee and Indiana Continuing Ed Forum.
Buoscio met his late wife, Sandra, to whom he was married 50 years, at a dance.
“They loved to dance,” McCall said. “When they were younger they went out every Saturday night. They traveled often to Las Vegas and the Islands.”
Buoscio enjoyed being around people. He also golfed and played tennis.
“He loved to tell stories and jokes,” McCall said. “He always had a story. I was a court reporter for a long time and could relate to what he was talking about.”
A graduate of Chicago’s Bowen High School, Buoscio was in the Mask and Wig Club.
“He loved to perform,” McCall said.
