Paul C. Bruno 97, passed away Monday May 24th, 2021. Paul was the first-born son to Dominic and Mabel Bruno. His parents went to expand their family with 6 more sons and one daughter, making Paul the oldest of 8. After finishing school, he met Marjorie who became his wife of 67 years. Together, they made it through WWII while Paul served in the Coast Guard and then settled in Kansas City, Missouri. Paul took a job with Firestone Tire & Rubber and retired after 38 years.
Along their journey together, they had only one daughter, Linda.
Paul was preceded in death by his wife Marjorie, his parents, Dominic and Mabel, stepmother Myrtle. Brothers, Russell, Joseph (Dorothy) and Charles and a sister Virginia (Robert).
Paul is survived by his daughter Linda (Rudy), grandson Rudy Jr. (Mande), granddaughter Vanessa, and great grandchildren Tristin, Skylar and Caiden. His brothers, Dominic Jr. (Barbara), Richard (Avis), Dale (Judy) and a sister-in-law Kathryn as well as many nieces and nephews.
Paul had many “sayings” but the most used by him were:
“At my age, I have never met anyone that can change the past.”
“I’ve never met anyone that has gotten out of this world alive.”
“Life is for the living…carry on!”
That’s exactly what he would want all of us to do…Carry on!

Paul Bruno had the greatest sense of humor and was always great to talk with. Linda and I have been friends since high school so I had opportunities to visit with him. I’m sure that he will be greatly missed by his family. He still had the pet rock that I gave him in replacement for Linda becoming my roommate when she was 18 or 19! My condolences.
