Local Taylorville restaurant owner Gaetano Gambino, of Gambino’s Louisiana Restaurant, passed away Sunday morning.
Gambino passed away as a result of a blood clot in his lungs following five heart surgeries spanning over a period of nine days in Belize.
Gambino first offered his Louisiana cuisine in Rochester before moving his restaurant to the Taylorville area over two years ago.
A special service for Gambino will be held this evening allowing the community to purchase items from the restaurant in order to support Gambino’s children.
Gaetano Gambino is survived by his three children.
