Passed away peacefully at his home, with his loving wife by his side on Friday, November 13, 2020 at the age of 69. Beloved husband of Pina for 50 wonderful years.

Cherished father of Carmine (Iwona), Angelo, Lisa, and Carolina (David). Proud Nonno of Liviana, Eliara, Izabella, Nico, Andrew, Gemma, Angelina, Carmen, J.J, Simona, and Leo. Predeceased by his parents Carmine and Angiolina. Loving brother of Verina of Italy, Luigi (Josie), Fiorina (Luigi), and Alex (Pina) all of Hamilton. Bruno will always be lovingly remembered by his extended family and friends in Italy and Canada. He was a dedicated truck driver at Stelco with over 30 years of service. Married in Italy, Bruno and Pina came to Canada in May of 1970 where they started their beautiful family. A proud family man, Bruno loved time with his friends and family, drinking, eating and socializing. He enjoyed passing time watching soccer, making his own wine, playing bocce, playing cards and barbequing, but nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his family. Over the last few years he fought valiantly with ALS always having the love and support of his wife and children. He will be dearly missed by all of those who knew and loved him. The family wishes to thank Dr. Turnbull, Dr. Winemaker and the Palliative Care team and a special thanks to P.S.W. Christine who lovingly cared for Bruno throughout his journey.

I have such fond memories of big, loud family dinners with lots of great food and drink around the table with Zio Bruno, Zia Pina and all the cousins and aunts and uncles. Zio Bruno’s booming voice and laugh filled the room with bountiful joy. One summer day, we picked some fresh tomatoes from his garden and he taught me how to eat them with Italian olive oil, salt and pepper with a fork. I did not like tomato’s until this day. Also to have room temperature water, which he taught me was better for the organs. I will hold these precious memories close to my heart forever. We love and miss you very much, Zio. May you Rest In Peace.
