Sam Vona, born in Moschiano, Italy passed away at the age of 79 years old on March 24, 2023.  Sam is survived by his loving wife, Irma, his five children Maria, Augie, Robert, Joseph and Cindy, his amazing Son-in-law and Daughters-in-law whom he all loved, and his fourteen grandchildren whom he cherished and adored Nicole, Dennis, Lauren, Michael, Ava, Emma, Bella, Matthew, Kara, Andrew, Samantha, Robbie, Nikki and Joey. 

Sam came to the United States when he was nine years old by boat with his mother, father and sister and they settled in Brooklyn, New York.  Sam met his beautiful wife, Irma, at the age of twenty three and they had five children who they raised in Queens, New York.  After working for New York State for several years, Sam started his own accounting practice Vona & Company in 1974 in Ridgewood Queens, which eventually became Vona & Vona after his children joined the firm.  Sam built a very successful accounting practice which his children still operate today.  Sam retired at the age of seventy years old after running the firm for nearly forty years. 

Sam enjoyed spending time at Wolf Lake where he and his family spent their summers for the past forty years. Sam loved being involved with the Wolf Lake community and served on the Lake’s Board of Directors for many years.  Sam loved watching baseball and boxing with his kids and going to Florida every chance he could. While Sam loved to work and truly enjoyed running his accounting practice his true love was spending time with his wife, kids and grandkids.
