Gino was born in Abruzzo, Italy on November 9, 1930, and learned the trade of a bricklayer at a young age. At 17, he began his journey in search of a better life, one of freedom and opportunity. He traveled to Venezuela and then Canada, where he married Albina on September 25, 1954. He soon moved to Rochester where he made his home for the past 67 years. He worked as a Union mason at LeChase Construction for 34 dedicated years. In his free time, Gino enjoyed pasta making (especially ricotta gnocchi for his grandchildren), wine making, and gardening but cherished the time he spent with his family the most. The D'Angelo family extends their sincere gratitude to the University of Rochester Hospice team who gave Gino excellent and loving care as well as all friends, neighbors and family who looked in upon Gino.
