Memories Timeline


  1. The family has my very deepest sympathy for the loss of your brother, George. I know your brother as Bill Marano. I met Bill through my Mother, Helen Bartolovich. Bill was always a true gentleman and the nicest man anyone could ever know. The last time I saw Bill was at my uncle’s funeral at Greco-Hertnick’s about 4 years ago. We sat next to each other during my uncle’s service. I am truly sad because of Bill’s passing. I know Bill is in Heaven because he was such a good and decent man. He will be missed by many.
