Passed away on June 22, 2012 at Citrus Valley Medical Center in Covina, California following a brief illness. He was born in Erie, Pennsylvania on August 23, 1949, to the late Dominic and Mary Santoro Bruno.
John served four years in the United States Air Force and graduated from Mercyhurst College with a degree in journalism.
John worked for newspapers in Pennsylvania and Ohio before relocating fourteen years ago to Ontario, California to work for the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin and most recently the San Gabriel Valley Tribune as a copy editor.
John is survived by his sisters Sandra Kulich (husband Mark) and Marie Callahan (husband Bill). He is also survived by his nieces Kiersten Kulich Brandt (husband Jack) and Kati Callahan of Dallas, Texas, his nephew Kevin Callahan, a great-niece Madison Marie Brandt and cousins in Erie and Meadeville.
John's sisters wish to express their sincere gratitude to his co-workers for keeping vigil at his bedside until they could arrive. They remain eternally grateful for these generous acts of kindness during his final days.
A memorial service will be held at the Church of the Cross in Erie in the near future.
