Obituary for: Gino Giuseppe Finelli
Gino Giuseppe Finelli, 87, passed away on April 8, 2018.
Gino was born in Italy, to the late Domenico and Marta (Testa) Finelli. In 1967, Gino, his wife Velia and their children immigrated to Akron, Ohio. He was a faithful member of St. Anthony Catholic Church and retired from Kenmore Construction after 23 years of service. He was also a member of the Carovillese Club and the Italian Center.
Gino enjoyed spending time outside taking daily walks with his wife, working in his vegetable garden, and doing yard work. He also enjoyed growing grapes and the yearly tradition of pressing his own wine. He always put his family first which he showed through his willingness to tackle any project, big or small. He was the first to pick up the paint brush or shovel and the last one to put them down. He loved spending time playing Monopoly, cards and bocce ball with his grandchildren. Time spent with his great-grandchildren always brought warmth to his heart and a smile to his face.
In addition to his parents, Gino is preceded in death by his sister, Chiarinna; and brothers, Armando and Angelo. He is survived by loving wife of 60 years, Velia; children, Sandra (Mike) O'Brien, Mario (Vicki) Finelli , Milena Finelli , Silvana (Dave) Sensius; and sister, Ivana; brother, Erennio Finelli; grandchildren, Joe, Brandon, Louis, Lucas, Andrea, Jessica, and Marissa; great-grandchildren, Velia, Zane, Gary and Aria; and many loving nieces and nephews.
Mass of Christian Burial will be Friday, 11:00 am at St. Anthony Catholic Church, 83 Mosser Place, Akron, OH 44310 with Rev. Father Edward Burba, Celebrant. Visitation will be Thursday from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm at H B Moore Funeral Home (corner of N. Main St. and Mildred Ave.). Gino's final resting place will be Holy Cross Cemetery.
