Dorothy Hennessey

December 25, 2018

Gino was an extraordinary man. I had the pleasure of knowing and sharing his companionship for 22 years. He was devoted to his family and friends. Always willing to help anyone in need. I learned from him. He was a very intelligent and wise man. He was also a proud man: too proud to admit when he was in pain or needed help. I admired him for his sincerity and devotion. He was fun to be with. He will be sorely missed by many. I consider myself lucky to have shared his friendship. May he Rest In Peace.
