Angelo Puccinelli has passed away at the age of 71. Angelo was born to Armando and Teresa Puccinelli in Fagnano, Italy. Upon arriving in the United States on Aug. 6, 1957, he worked in Paul Sawyer's garage as a foreign car mechanic. Angelo eventually went to work for his uncles in Puccinelli's Market as a butcher. He then purchased Gene Wines Locker Plant and started Angelo's Food and Locker Plant, which he ran until 1990. Angelo faithfully served as the Elko County Fairground superintendent from May 15, 1991, until his passing. Angelo married his lifelong love, Jeanie (Baroni), on Dec. 18, 1960 in Elko, Nev., where they made a home with their children, Teresa and Giovanni. Angelo enjoyed opera music and performed often as a young alter boy in Italy. He bred, raised and raced horses in Elko, often just for the love of the race. If someone else's horse won, "it must have cheated." In this competitive spirit, he was one of the founders of the Blackjack Challenge. Angelo thoroughly enjoyed his family and many friends. He is survived by his loving wife, Jeanie; daughter, Teresa (Randy), of Spring Creek, Nev.; son, Giovanni, of Bishop, Calif.; grandchildren, Angela of Reno, Nev., Anthony of Spring Creek, Nev., and Sophie of Elko, Nev.; and his brother, Giovanni (Rita), of Greenbrae, Calif. He also leaves several nephews and nieces. Angelo was preceded in death by his father, mother and several uncles and aunts.
