It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the death of our beloved Eugene (“Gino”) Bruno. He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Joy Bruno; three daughters; three grandchildren; and a dear nephew.
Gino was born in San Mateo, Calif. He served on the front lines in the Korean War. In his younger years, he enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson. He was a master handball player and loved playing bocce ball. He enjoyed hiking, camping and fly fishing. He was an active member and past president of the Sons of Italy. Our Gino was an “old-school” man. He was a pillar of strength for our entire family and will be greatly missed by all.
