Help with Arrangements for Joe Gambino

My father Joseph R Gambino, entered into eternal rest on February 7th, 2020, at Bridgeport Hospital After a long fight with Parkinson’s Disease. Born on September 27th, 1943, Joe was the son of the late Mario “Morris” Gambino and Biagina “Bessie” Puglisi Gambino. Joe was married to the love of his life, Kathleen Filia Gambino and was the best father and grandfather anyone could ask for to his two daughters, Trisha Gambino Hogland and Gina Gambino, and two grandchildren Raven buchwald and Violet Hoglan. He loved muscle cars, enjoyed marksmanship & fishing and used to reminisce often about his 69 Super sport Nova. Joe graduated from Notre Dame High School in 1961 & later on from Pratt Institute. As an architect and project manager by profession, he worked for the City of Bridgeport for over 30 years, as well as many other companies such as Avco Lycoming, Fletcher-Thompson, Xerox, Coca-Cola & G.E. The landmark of his career was the design of the Beardsley Zoo Carousel Building & various other structures throughout Bridgeport, CT. Joe will forever be loved and missed so much for his amazing character, faith and sense of humor. He was a father figure and mentor to so many. Please help my family pay for the costs associated with my father's burial so we can have a respectful and loving funeral for him. All money will be used for funeral service and burial costs. Any additional funds will be donated to the Parkinsons Foundation.
