Bruno Brunetti, 78, of the Hudson section of Plains Township, passed away unexpectedly, Tuesday, July 31, 2012, at his residence.
Born on July 2, 1934, he was a son of the late Enrico and Emma Castellani Brunetti of Throop. The family moved to Plains Township when he was a young child, and Bruno has been a life-long resident ever since.
He was a graduate of the Plains High School, class of 1952. Bruno was employed in various garment factories throughout the area until his retirement.
He was married to Marie Gosiewski, on July 2, 1955, and recently they had celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary.
Bruno was a member of the Ss. Peter and Paul Church, Plains Township.
He was a man of many hobbies. He loved playing cards with friends, reading books on Civil War and World War II. He loved to play golf, he was an avid fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies and Penn State.
Most of all, Bruno will be remembered as a loving husband, brother, uncle, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Bruno loved supporting his grand and great-grandchildren by watching their sporting events, whether it was baseball, field hockey, soccer or marching band.
Bruno was a wonderful grandfather. He always found away to make each of his grandchildren feel as though he or she was his favorite. His grandchildren credit him for shaping them into the people they are today.
He loved his family more than anything else. Bruno always looked forward to the weekly family gathering every Saturday for Noni Burgers where he would make it a point to ask his family about things going on in their lives.
