Angelo Gabriel Bruni Sr., 84, of New Kensington, died Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021, at Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh. He was born Nov. 7, 1936, in New Kensington, son of the late Homer Amadeo and Letizia "Lil" (Greco) Bruni. He was the husband of the late Donna Lee (Connors) Bruni, who died in 2018. Besides his wife and parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Samuel Bruni. He was a member of Mt. St. Peter Roman Catholic Church, New Kensington, and the Holy Name Society of the church. He was also a member of the Sons of Italy, the Knights of Columbus and the American Legion. He graduated from Ken Hi in 1954, St. Vincent College in 1959 and received his master's degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1968. He was a proud Army veteran. A lover of music, he played the French horn in various community bands. His career as a teacher began with the last graduating class at Tarentum High School and taught the first class of Highlands High School in 1968, where he worked as a teacher and administrator for 35 years. He served on the Brackenridge Council for several years. During his early working years, he was employed by Ken Kamera and Kmart in New Kensington, and also worked for Allegheny County Health Department as an inspector. It was this occupation that provided him the opportunity to meet his future bride, Donna, during a lunch date in Tarentum. Together they raised a family that he considered to be his greatest accomplishment. Survivors include four sons, Angelo G. Bruni Jr., of New Kensington, Anthony D. (Kellie Abbott) Bruni, of New Kensington, Vincent N. Bruni, of New Kensington, and Benjamin M. (Jennifer) Bruni, of Plum; two daughters, Rachel C. (Francois) Beaudry, of Gatineau, Quebec, and Christina L.

He is also survived by two brothers, Richard (Arlene) Bruni and Frederick Bruni, and many beloved nieces, nephews and cousins.

I think this is the teacher that started the alternative education, at highlands back in the 70´s. If so, I´ve never forgot him, and how much he helped me. Sorry I never got the chance to tell him.

May God bless the entire Bruni family. If my parents (your Uncle Floyd and Aunt Ellie) were here, they would have many stories to tell!

My condolences to the Bruni family. Mr. Bruni was a wonderful and kind man. I have fond memories of watching him take his grandchildren, of who he loved dearly, for a walk on the block that we lived on. And I can´t forget those long hours of working with him at the voting precinct in Parnassus. He helped the hours go faster and smoother by telling us stories about his children and grandchildren always having all of laughing. May he rest in the arms of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
