Michael J. Bruno of Westchester, IL died October 3, 2017 at the age of 89. Mike was a 70 year licensed funeral director and embalmer in Illinois who started his career with Rago Brothers Funeral Home, Chicago, IL after graduating from Worsham College of Mortuary Science. He then obtained his own location, Hennessey-Bruno Funeral Home, Berkeley, IL until he sold. He has been associated with Conboy-Westchester Funeral Home, Westchester, IL for the past ten years. As all who knew him would understand, he was directing funerals the week before he passed. Retirement was not in his vocabulary as he was a Funeral Director through and through. He will be missed by all who knew him.
