Father James E. Burke
Posted Thursday, October 10, 2019 12:00 am

Father James E. Burke, who served for 15 years as pastor of Sacred Heart parish on Staten Island, died Oct. 4. He was 87.

Father Burke was assigned to Sacred Heart from 1988 to 2003.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Thursday, Oct. 10, at 11 a.m. in the chapel of the John Cardinal O’Connor Pavilion in the Bronx. Cardinal Dolan will celebrate the Mass, and Father Louis Jerome, pastor of St. Charles parish on Staten Island, will deliver the homily.

Father Jerome began working with Father Burke at Sacred Heart on Sept. 8, 2001, serving as administrator before he became pastor of Sacred Heart in 2003.

“He helped people by getting a Mass together for that week, celebrating the Mass and counseling people after 9/11,” Father Jerome, who was pastor of Sacred Heart for 12 years, told CNY.

“I think we lost eight or nine people on 9/11. He was very good in helping grieving people.”

Father Jerome said he visited with Father Burke a few months ago at the John Cardinal O’Connor Pavilion, where Father Burke had lived since his retirement in 2007.

“He loved the John Cardinal O’Connor residence. He was very happy there,” Father Jerome said.

Born in Manhattan, he earned a bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s Seminary, Dunwoodie, where he studied for the priesthood, and a master’s from Manhattan College. He was ordained by Cardinal Francis Spellman at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in 1958.

He was administrator of Assumption, Maybrook, 1987-1988, and St. Columbanus, Cortlandt Manor, 1985-1987. He served as parochial vicar of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Pelham Manor, 2003-2007; St. Patrick, Yorktown Heights, 1981-1985; St. Bartholomew, Yonkers, 1959-1964; St. Mary, Wappingers Falls, 1958-1959; and Immaculate Conception, Amenia, 1958.

Father Burke served at Cardinal Spellman High School, the Bronx, as an administrative assistant, 1977-1981, and procurator, 1974-1977, and was on the faculty of Cardinal Hayes High School, the Bronx, 1964-1974.

Burial will take place in St. Raymond Cemetery, the Bronx.

Dear John,

I believe that Father received his Masters in 1971.

When Father was assigned to Cardinal Spellman High School, he often celebrated Mass on weekends at St. Barnabas where I got to meet him. He was a very devout Priest.

May He Rest In Peace.

Anthony Walter Lagonowicz
(1923 – 2019)

LAGONOWICZ, ANTHONY WALTER, of Miami, Florida, passed away on September 26, 2019, at the age of 96.

He was born in Providence, Rhode Island, on April 19, 1923. Walter was educated by and would go on to discern a vocation with, the De La Salle Christian Brothers, whose mission it was to provide a Catholic education to the poor. When the opportunity presented itself for Walter to continue his work with the Brothers in Bluefields, Nicaragua, he took it, as he had become fluent in Spanish during his studies at Manhattan College and then at Fordham University.

After completing his service with the Brothers, Walter would go on to marry Lyl de Maria Zuniga, of Jinotepe, Nicaragua. Walter and Lyl had one son, Peter Anthony Lagonowicz. The family would later leave Nicaragua in 1978, just before the rise of the left-wing Sandinistas. They lived briefly in New Milford, Connecticut before finally settling in Miami, Florida.

Before retiring, Walter spent more than 25 years in various roles at Westchester General Hospital and its affiliate Southern Winds Hospital. Those who had a chance to meet Walter will always remember him fondly, as he had a special way of making an almost instant connection with the people he would meet by taking a sincere personal interest in them.

Throughout his life, Walter was unwavering in his Catholic faith and was an active participant in the life of the Church. Even in his final years, when it was no longer possible for him to attend daily or even Sunday Mass, Walter would ask for and receive the Eucharist at home.

Joining him in this deep faith, we are hopeful that Walter will be welcomed into the radiant presence of the Lord and that he will be reunited in Heaven with Lyl, his brothers and sisters, and his parents and other deceased loved ones.

Finally, we honor one of Walter’s final wishes by recognizing in a special way and saying thank you to his nieces and nephews who warmly welcomed him into their home to spend his final couple of years, the Zuniga Vega family: Fofo, Ana, Alejandro, Gabriel, and Mary.

Walter is also survived by Peter, his son, and his daughter-in-law, Luly, and his three granddaughters: Sofia, Alexia, and Carolina.

Mary and Joseph, pray for him. Saint Anthony, pray for him. Saint John Baptist de La Salle, pray for him. Saint Marcellin Champagnat, pray for him. Saint Ignatius of Loyola, pray for him.
