Bruno you will be sorely missed by the towns of Gerlach and Empire. I remember when we lived there on the old Ginnochio ranch outside of Gerlach in the early 1970's. He was a kind and sweet man. He gave me my very first Shirley Temple when I was a kid. I still love them to this day! My thoughts are with his family, friends, and anyone who had ever known him. Miss his Raviolli and Spaghetti. Love you Bruno,

Bruno, you will be missed. Gerlach will never be the same. You were so kind and always generous to us when we came to town. Your spaghetti is the best. Rest in peace. God bless to Skeekie and all of your loved ones.

Bruno, you are forever in my heart. I will ever grateful for your generosity, friendship and big, booming nature. Your kindness to my father for many years and your graciousness to my Mom are perfect examples of your greatness. Thanks for all the 'free drinks' you gave to my brother, Joe, and I over the many years of hanging at your bar. Say hello to Dad for me...

I had many motorcycle runs and Chukar hunts over the years with a stop at Bruno's...... great food, pool and always a Picon or two. Bruno was a colorful character and will be missed. My condolences to the Selmi family. Godspeed Bruno!

We would make the drive from Fernley when we lived there out to Bruno's to get ravioli's. It was so worth the drive. What a nice man. What a wonderful memory he gave our family.

Countless memories over generations of our family and friends gearing up to go to "Bruno's" to start us off on a hunt in the great Silver State.

My father Louie Solari passed 3+ years ago, but there wasn't a week that didn't go by where Bruno wasn't mentioned, basically whether he knew it or not he was the maitre'D of our next excursion. Speaking on behalf of the Linden growers and extended friends, the spirit goes on.

Happy Trails!
