    We’re so sorry to hear of Uncle Reno’s passing. We’ll always remember him like in the picture on the funeral home’s site. Smiling and the life of the family picnics.
    With love,
    Tom & Sue

    We are saddened to hear the news of Remo’s passing. I still am moved by the wonderful gesture by Remo when he had a mass for me when I had my close call with cancer.
    Rest in peace Remo.

    Uncle Remo was my godfather and one of my earliest memories as a toddler in Richfield Village when he came around visiting my Dad. The memories continue to the summer get togethers around our pool to sitting around his kitchen table listening to his off-color jokes as I got older. He and my Dad, Dino, were so similar in mannerisms and sense of humor they were more like twins than just brothers, it’s like losing my Dad again. You will be missed.
