Mike so loved spending time with his many nieces and nephews, and enjoyed all his wonderful memories of good times with his cousins and many friends. Michael Bruno served countless numbers of families over his 70 year career as a funeral director. He worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail was attended to for each family.
