Gino was a great guy who proudly celebrated his Italian ancestry. He tirelessly served the Cesare Battisti Lodge and its members. Gino left a great legacy to all of us.

To the entire Baldin Family, Linda & I send our Deepest Sympathy. We will have an Eternal Mass from the Sacred Heart Southern Missions said for Gino. Billy and Francis it has been many years since we have seen each other, but I always think of our childhood days in East Chicago on Tod Avenue with fond memories. My God bless the entire family.

We worked with Gino as the hall manager at at Villa Cesare for several annual Dyer Little League Ladies Night Out fundraisers. He was always so accommodating and professional but also with a sense of humor. Sending our sympathies to his family

My deepest sympathy to all of the Baldin Family on Gino's passing. Your words about Gino could not be more true. Through working with Lynda, I personally experienced the immense love they both had for their family. The many, many trips and excursions, the sleepovers with their grandchildren, there was no end to their generosity. True, Gino was always a phone call away, and while Lynda was alive, he could be found at any number of stores gathering from the many lists Lynda continually had for him - always revolving around something for the "kids". When I was at a very low point, Lynda became concerned and often showed up with pannini's lovingly made for me by Gino, with the message that I must eat something! They fed my soul as they did for many others. Gino, rest in peace. Your memory will be eternal.

I can't physically be there with you, but I will be there in spirit... I loved Gino like a father. I worked for him for twenty years. He was always there for me. Godspeed Gino, Julie

I had not seen Gino since our early twenties but I remember him as a quiet but warm and friendly person. It was always fun to see him and have our conversations about what was going on. My thoughts are with Billy, Francis and the family
