Vince Bruno, 89, passed away on July 11, 2021 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Mr. Bruno was born on December 8, 1931 in Torrington, Connecticut to Daniel and Gina Bruno.
Vince served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He worked for Goodyear and retired after 28 years of service then went on to work at St. Lucie Battery and Tire where he later retired for a second time.
After retirement, Vince and Katie spent summers in the mountains at their home in Clayton, Georgia. Vince’s “hobby” was taking Katie on many adventures to antique shops always looking for that special addition to Katie’s chicken and rooster collection.
He loved telling great jokes, growing beautiful orchids, fixing things, and helping others.
