A funeral mass was held at St. Athanasius Church in Mountain View on Jan. 3. Interment followed at the Italian Cemetery in Colma. His family prefers that contributions in his memory be made to El Camino Hospital Foundation, 2500 Grant Rd. Mountain View, CA 94040. An online memorial guest book is at www.cusimanocolonial.com.
