Tombstone Tuesday

Bruno was my Paternal Grandfather's nephew, and his oldest brother, Giuseppe's son. I've managed to collect quite a bit of info on him since his arrival in 1920 (he was 15) but I have not yet found the tombstone for Bruno, his wife Rose or his parents, Joseph and Josephine. I have contacted Find A Grave for help to see if someone can photograph the cemetery where he is buried. Below is a partial copy of his obituary.
