Known as "G-Man", Gennaro was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother. He was an avid bowler who was proud of his many 300 games, and wore his rings proudly. Gennaro was also a sports enthusiast who loved the Jets, Yankees, and Rangers. He enjoyed good banter amongst family and friends over sports and loved to spend long days at the beach, on a road trip, at the casino, or at a concert. G-man was a true family man; He was a kind, selfless, music and sports loving guy who didn't let the disease slow him down.
He is predeceased by his parents (Sebastian and Grace), his brother in law Father Roch Ciandella, and sister in law Barbara Vinci.
