Death of pastor’s son

We were saddened to learn of the death of Michele (Mike) Bertuzzi, 51 year-old son of deceased GCI pastor Bob Bertuzzi and his wife Coco. Mike died in a one-car accident late last Saturday night in Deltona, Florida while returning from visit with a long-time friend. He is survived by Kimberly, his wife of ten years, their son Robbie, several step-children, Mike’s mother Coco, and Mike’s sister Erin.

Bob Bertuzzi formerly pastored the GCI church in Orlando, Florida. Though they no longer live nearby, Coco and Erin often attend the Melbourne, Florida church. We extend to them, and all the family, our deepest sympathy.

  3. My most heart felt condolences to the Bertuzzi family. Michele and I spent a lot of time performing together in college. He was a great guitar player reliable helper on all those road trips we took together with the Young Ambassadors. We shared a sense of humor due to our advanced age on our classmates. I’ll miss a really great guy and good friend.

  4. I was stunned to hear of Mike’s death. I remember him so well from our childhood in Seattle. I ran into him again several years ago at an airport and it was like no time had passed. I always appreciated his warm and cheerful character. To have that personality taken from Coco, Kimberley and Family is a great loss. I’m sure it makes us all look forward to the time we will be reunited with great people like Mike again.
