On July 13th Louis “Luigi” Joseph Barbano joined his wife, Mary Jane Barbano up in heaven. For the last 10 years, Luigi resided in Atascadero, California but spent most of his life in Fresno, California. Growing up, Luigi excelled at all sports including earning a full ride scholarship for pole vaulting. After serving in the Army, stationed in Alaska, Luigi worked for the City of Fresno for over 25 years as a mechanic. In the late 60’s, Luigi and his wife opened up a Mama Mia’s Pizzeria, the best Italian Take Out in Fresno! After retirement, Luigi lived the good life of golfing, fixing anything around the house and still cracking his jokes. Luigi is survived by his eldest daughter Linda Foley, his youngest daughter Debby Evans and his grand-daughter Erin Foley. Luigi will be missed.
