Guido Carlo Budelli
Oct. 30, 1923-July 17, 2022
Menlo Park, CA
A longtime resident of Menlo Park, Guido Budelli, beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his loving family. Born in Alameda, CA to Fortunato and Maria Budelli, he graduated from St. Joseph Elementary School and Sequoia High School. He served four years in the U.S. Navy during World War II.
Guido married Florence Camporelli in 1946. Together they raised their family in Menlo where they were active members at St. Raymond Parish. A trained mechanic, Guido worked at Freeman-Sondgroth Paving Co. for many years and later moved on to BFI in San Jose where he became an equipment supervisor. Guido, an accomplished athlete, was also heavily involved in fast pitch softball traveling with his family to ballparks around the state from the Bay Area to Sacramento to Fresno.
In retirement Guido traveled with Flo, took up golf, and was the family's “go-to” all around handyman.
Guido was preceded in death by his wife, parents, and brother Louie.
He is survived by his children Bob (Tana), Diane Garibaldi (John), and Dick (Robyn) and grandchildren Bobby (Sierra), Mikie (Brooke), Chris (Naomi), Adam (Sofia), Francesca Budelli Harter (Brady), John Ross (Alicia), Michael (Keely), and Joe (Sonia) Garibaldi, 15 great-grandchildren, and three nephews.
A special thank you to Malia “Tita” Ruocco for being Guido's dedicated caregiver.
