Gino Manzo, 90, went to be with the Lord on Friday, May 8, 2020. He was predeceased by his wife Dolores Manzo, daughter Virginia Manzo, son Paul Manzo, sisters and brothers Colucci & Clemente Izzi, Carmela Manzo, Mary and Firoretto D'Alessandro and Jenny and Larry Kardell and son-in-law James Herrick and his german shepherd Dolly. He is survived by his children Gino J. & Kathy Manzo, Lisa Herrick, Sandra & David Lasky, Michael & Suzie Manzo and the twins Gena and Joey Manzo; grandchildren David-Michael & Kat, Joshua & Alisha, Courtney, Chelsea, Stephen, Raven, Mikayla, Emma and Madison; great grandchildren Abigail, Elijah, Bianca, Gianna, Carmela and Maddox. He is also survived by his very special big brother and sister-in-law Tony & Patricia Manzo and his loving and caring nieces Gloria Listner and Carmela Conte, dear friend Brenda Salai and many other loving nieces, nephews, cousins and special friends. Upon arriving to Ellis Island from Duronia, Italy when he was 11 years old he became a shoe shine boy in Manhattan and then became part of the Jersey City Shoe Shine Boys. He met the love of his life Dolores who started as his pen pal while he was in the Marine Corp. He eventually met her family who embraced him. They then relocated to the Binghamton area and was proud to raise his four boys and four girls. Gino was a retired employee of Raymond Corporation and worked for many years at Ansco. He was embraced by his church family at Cross Roads of Life Church. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend who will be dearly missed. Dad lived to tell his life stories to anyone who would listen. His favorite saying was, "Don't get old stay young" and he believed that his glass of Fortissimo wine was his "medicine". A Private Funeral Service will be held at the convenience of the family with a burial to follow in Calvary Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date to be determined.

I've known Gino ever since I can remember; His wife and my mother (Dalores Manzo and Virginia Fuller) were best friends and I remember going over to their house when I was young to have picnics and go swimming. Gino or "King" as we called him had that deep voice saying hello as we walked in.

I have not seen Gino in many many years but the Manzo family was a big part of my younger years; years that I hold dearly to my heart.

Gino Manzo is now with his amazing wife Dalores, and is looking over his entire family.

It was an honor to have known Gino and I enjoyed all his stories as I could listen to them over and over, I loved it. I enjoyed going to restaurants with him and his family as they made me feel like family. I will cherish and never forget the memories I have of Gino, we made each other laugh and smile as he always
made my day. He was an amazing man and he will be forever missed, RIP ❤🙏❤

To all my dear cousins, I am saddened to hear of the loss of your father and my very special uncle. Uncle Gino and Aunt Dolores created many special childhood memories for me and brought a closeness to our families that has bonded us for a lifetime. Your father meant so much to my dad throughout his life and for my mother who saw in Uncle Gino the brother she never had. Our family will always treasure our memories of Uncle Gino and the special place he now occupies in our hearts.

I was lucky enough to hear Gino's story from him at his birthday party, 85th I believe. He tells a good story, was very interesting. And I was happy Sandi that he liked the fidget spinner ! What do you get for someone who's 85 ? I enjoyed talking with him that day and glad I had the chance to meet him and spend time with him.

We are all so saddened by the loss of this wonderful man. He will always be remembered for his compassion, positive attitude, and strong work ethic. As an uncle, he taught me much about how to live life to the fullest and I will never forget him. All who knew him were blessed to have him be part of their lives. Rest In Peace Uncle Gino. ❤️
