Giovanni Angelo Polleri aka Gino/Gio age 18, gained his wings in heaven, October of 2019. He was a brilliant, creative, macaroni loving, funny, and handsome young man. Gino was an entrepreneur at heart and many had no clue he was high functioning autistic. He shared a pillow with his beloved morkie, Roman. In his spare time, he worked part-time, played video games, volunteered, and was making post-graduation plans to create an e-sport company with his brother. Although his journey on earth was short, Gino’s indelible mark is permanently etched in our minds and hearts including the many donor recipient lives he saved. He is forever loved and missed by his family, church members, teachers, co-workers, and close friends.
