Dear Rita,

Your Dad and I were office mates in the early 50's. We designed together, played bridge
together and sometimes ate together. Your mom's beef stroganoff was the pleasure of my
life back then. After Gino changed organizations at Hughes and didn't need to commute so far to work his reputation grew bigger until he was designing everything in Hughes Missile Systems Canoga Park. We stayed in frequent touch but had to give up our lunches and weekly bridge games. Fortunately, over 60 years we would occasionally get together and reminisce about early
design challenges and old friends. I will miss my cigar smoking friend very much and hope the lasting loving memories of your Dad will eventually take the place of your grief.

As a long-time family friend, I wish you well,

Bryce Wheeler

I met Gino a few times over the last 20 years and I think he was a very remarkable man, respected and highly regarded by all who knew him well. He will be greatly missed. Wilma Wheeler

On behalf of his alma mater, the University of Rochester, our thoughts and condolences go out to Gino's family. Gino was a warm, generous man who lived a long rich life. May the ripples of the splash of his life carry on in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.

Gino was a man I highly regarded, respected and felt comfortable being around. A quiet man of wisdom, strength and knowledge. I will miss his presence in our lives.

Gino was a gentleman of the old school. A visit to Gino always entailed being treated to a delightful Italian dinner at one of his favorite restaurants with the assurance of terrific service and delicious food. I recently read some abstracted descriptions of his inventions on the internet. Amazing stuff! He was blessed with long life. He is missed.

Uncle Gino was a part of my life from my earliest memories because his family and ours shared a duplex house years ago. He was always a kind man with good will and quiet humor. His long life was a gift to all who knew him.

Gino had a remarkable, generous spirit. It's not just that he wanted the best for himself--he wanted that for everyone around him.

Starting in the 60s, a trip to California from New York always meant seeing Uncle Gino. There will always be something missing on my future trips, but many happy memories of visits and family travels together.

Gino was a wonderfully warm, talented and "people person", incorporating everyone within his sphere of love and caring. May GOD now comfort you, his family and city of friends. A painful time indeed. With prayers, Marie Bradley

I enjoyed working for Gino in the 1970's, and will always picture him sitting at his big Friden calculator. He was a wonderful contributor to the great developments at Hughes.

What a wonderful and talented man. He will be remembered as one of the greatest engineers.

Thank you for giving me the honor of serving your family at this sensitive time in your lives. Gino seems to have been a brilliant, loving, generous individual. I'm sure you are grateful to have had him for as long as you did.
