My heartfelt condolences to the ENTIRE family. I remember Uncle Gino always driving a nice car, always being "dressed", and he had a great smile...he once showed me how cool it was that the trunk on his Cadillac shut by itself!

Gino always tried to be a "Classy Guy" and you know what?--He was!

My condolences to the Troncone family. Do not feel that you have to go through with the death of your loved one alone. God cares for you and he will give you the strength you need to endure (1Peter 5:7).

Gino had a big heart for our kids and the Wigs 4 Kids program. He loved doing an event for us last year near Valentine’s Day and supported us with whatever he could do for the organization. We have met many wonderful people through Gino and we are grateful that we had a chance to know him. Gino made a difference in the lives of our children. Our prayers for his family at this difficult time.

The kids and I thank you – Maggie Varney & The Wigs 4 Kids Team

Gino was a big part of our lives, married my sister Lori. I traveled the country with Gino, always a lot of fun. My fondest memories is that he would always make my parents laugh. He always drove nice cars, my biggest challenge was to buy them from him before he offered them to others. He was missed and will be remembered. Michael Thornton
