BRUNO LUCCHESE, 78 ROCKFORD - Bruno Lucchese, 78, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, April 15, 2014. Bruno was born on July 14, 1935, in Palermo, Sicily. He came to the United States and became a citizen in 1958; he was 23 years old. Bruno worked at Ingersoll for many years until moving to Galena, Illinois to follow his dream and opened his own restaurant/tavern, Bruno's Tap. Bruno enjoyed food, family, life and people in that exact order. He loved spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enjoyed singing and being the life of the party. Once you met Bruno, you would never forget him; he was truly one of a kind. Survivors include his eldest daughter, Sandy (Deb) Lucchese; his only son, Joseph (Clarissa) Lucchese; daughter, Laurie (Bob) Lucchese; and youngest daughter, Linda Lucchese; along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A very special thank you to River Bluff Nursing Home and all their staff. They have been wonderful and thoughtful on Bruno and his family's journey. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, April 21, 2014, in Honquest Family Funeral Home with Crematory, Mulford Chapel, 4311 N. Mulford Road, Loves Park.
