  17. It was with great sadness that I learned of Gino’s passing. I will very much miss seeing him or having drop by for a chat. He was a kind and generous man, meticulous and honest. We go back many years both as members of the Columbus Credit Union and as friends. He will be missed. From my family to yours, our deepest condolences.
