Dear David, Tim, Tina Tim. Marybeth. I wished I could have been there with you. Just know my thoughts and prayers are with you. You are blessed to have had a remarkable Dad. Gene had so much compassion for everyone he met. He always thought about everyone else never thought about himself.

Losing my Bon Vivant Brother Gene, with me my entire life, has left a huge hole in my heart. Boundless thanks to his children, always present for him, and to Stella, his caretaker with him at the end of his life as we knew it. Precious memories abound. Eternal peace and comfort, my Dear Geno.

Your Dad was of a kind. I will remember him as a man with a generous spirit and welcoming heart. He was proud determined and hard working, I’m sure he fought to the end. I know how much he loved you and appreciated his family and the support comfort and loving care throughout this past few months. May he found his final rest and home with Our Lord Jesus. With fondness and sympathy Karen

My heart is sad with the passing of my Uncle Gene. He was one of a kind or as we referred to him as a "Rockstar " His kindness and genuine love and support will never be forgotten. Fly High!!! I will miss you and love you dearly. Joyce

Geno was my friend and I will miss him. We enjoyed many conversations about Italy, Italian food and travel. I loved hearing his stories of his many adventures and his zest and zeal for life. He supported My ambitions as a chef and came to my Evening in Tuscany presentation. We were able to host Geno at many of our family events. He always came with a smile, a laugh , and drank red wine ! My last visit with him was jan 7 with my husband. We were able to sit and talk with Geno for over two hours and hear stories of when he served in World War II, we saw his baby picture his draft papers his military photos POW memorabilia it was an amazing visit! I will always treasure my time with him! RIP Geno my friend 🇮🇹❤️
