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.

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.

    My heart breaks today as I read of Gino's passing. You both were such a huge part of my childhood, my grandparents across the street. Always so kind to welcome the bear foot little girl into your home. I have so many fond memories of being with both of you. I'm sending my love your way, the world has lost a great human being, and heaven has gained another angel to watch over us. Gino, say hi to my dad, I'm sure he's got a lot of catching up to do. Joy, if you need anything even a hug from the not so little girl from across the street, please don't hesitate to ask. Love to you all. Meghan Hall
