I enjoyed our communion services with Frank and Anita at the Shores on Clear Lake. Frank was always willing to share his stories of his earlier year in Chicago, his military service, his work with the CTA and his life and family with the loving Anita.
God bless you Frank, Anita and their holy family.

Who can forget "BRUNO" he was everywhere and always had an interesting slant on how things were at the CTA. In I heard him say how he , that's right HE, kept the CTA running!!! I know he will forever haunt everyone responsible for screwing him out of his Retro-Active Pension. Well he certainly lived long enough to collect his fair share. My first day as a bus cleaner Bruno was my foreman and I will never forget the first question he asked me,
"What kind of Pizza do you like? And he paid for pizza for the entire shift. I knew then this was more than a job it was a family,.
RIP Frank Bruno!!!!

Gods Speed to you Frank and condolences to your family. May they find solace knowing that your knowledge was shared with generations of young CTA Repairmen . You were a good man and great and patient teacher. Rest peacefully.

Bruno is a long time friend to me at CTA and ATU Local 241. He also was one of my first Bus Maintenance Instructors when I began my career at CTA. He would also come by to have breakfast with the North Park Boys when he was in town. I remember him running for election for President or any other open position at ATU Local 241. I would always run into a Frank at most Maintenance or Union events. He will be missed as one of the boys. RIP Frank!
