Mr. Remigio J. Pietrantoni (Reno), 86, passed away on Thursday, April 5, 2018 at their apartment in The Willows assisted living Oxford, FL. His loving wife of 60 years was at his side.

Reno was an Army Veteran and served his country playing trumpet with the 98th Army Band at the US ARMY Aviation Center in Fort Rucker, Alabama. His joke was “I got overseas to Fort Rucker, AL without overseas pay, but it was the best thing that ever happened to me, as that is where I met my wife, Sara Margaret Farris.” They were married February 23, 1958. Reno finished his military obligation in June and they returned to Michigan after a 2 week visit with Reno’s family in PA so they could meet the new bride.
