Gurino "Gene" Lavezzari, beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, passed away peacefully at his home in Torrance, California on March 9, 2023, after a short battle with cancer.

He is preceded in death by his wife Lucille, and daughter Jeannie Lynn. Gene is survived by his sister Gloria Hill; his sons John Joseph and wife Gail, and Richard Eugene and wife Lynn; seven grandchildren: Brian (Jina), Eric (Jessica), Jennifer (Clint), Nicole (Stephen), Matthew (Lisa), Ashley, and Alexander; and 10 great-grandchildren: Ashlynn, Mark, Benjamin, Alyssa, Ryan, Thomas, Caleb, Leila, Nicholas, and Reese. He also leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, family members, and friends.

Gene will forever be remembered for his devotion to family, friends, country and faith.

He was a proud veteran who served in WWII with the Merchant Marines and served in the Korean War with the United States Army. He supported many different veteran groups throughout his life and was incredibly patriotic and proud of his Italian American family linage.
