MONTEREY – Salvatore A. Bruno, a Monterey native, passed away at Community Hospital on Saturday, April 13, 2013.
A vibrant and generous man who's infectious laughter and compassionate spirit touched all who knew him. Sal most enjoyed the time he spent with his family and friends always welcoming them into his home offering feasts of food and wine with a huge smile.
Sal is survived by his wife and sweetheart, Cathy, who found each other and loved each other deeply and passionately since 1985. Sal is also survived by his sister Marion Rappa, and his three beautiful children, Juliana, Anthony and Jennifer who have blessed him with six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
All who knew and loved Sal will miss him deeply.
