GINO PULETTI, age 82
Beloved husband of Philomena (nee Patete). Loving father of Vince (Kelly), Carla Reda (Vince) and Tom (Julie). Devoted Nono of Angelo and Giani Corrao, Alexis, Graziella, Julietta, Maddie, Katie, Tommy and Joey Puletti and Taylor and Madison Kedzie. Cherished son of Vincenzo and Genovina Puletti (both deceased). Dearest brother of Silvana (deceased), Bruno (deceased) and Olindo Puletti. Brother-in-law and uncle of many.
Gino doted on his children and grandchildren. He loved his accordian, wine and tending to his garden.
Perhaps this short letter from one of his nephews sums up Gino's impact best...
I will always remember my uncle Gino with his hard Italian accent as someone who lived by his own accordian tune, homemade wine that tasted like salad dressing sometimes, always hard working, never stopping, yard perfectionist who was always trying to solve the mystery of unsolved dog poop on his tree lawn in the summer of 2015 (shelby did it). He preferred Vinny Testaverde over Kosar just because he was Italian. His home-grown produce put supermarkets to shame. He was someone who didn't buy in to toxic in-law drama and his appreciation for kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews - only of course when they were older and did not mess anything up. I am very dissapointed i did not get to see him the last couple weeks when he was sick. I will always have good memories of him and do my best to pass on to the next generation, these great people in our lives, who may not be perfect, but were solid good people who worked hard and did their best. In this age of self-centered texting milquetoast oversensitivity, men like Gino were true characters that made the world a better place, and they were way more intersting than anything on tv and the internet.
