February 18, 1930 to February 11, 2013
Today, we remember and celebrate a life well lived. Ferdinando was a blessed man, a man that enjoyed the simple things of life. With his devoted loving wife Elsie at his side, nothing was impossible. Their love and devotion to one another was unparalleled. Together, day in and day out, in good times and in bad times, Elsie and "Nando" were an example of what the definition of true love is. Elsie's beloved "Coni" will be missed.
Nando, also known as "Fernando the Tailor" would always be seen on State Street going to lunch or playing cards with his friends. Zio Nando always valued his humble upbringing and the childhood memories of his beloved little town in Italy. Nando will always be remembered for his smile and wonderful laughter.
He was born in Briatico, Italy to Antonio & Erminia Zungri on February 18, 1930. He passed away peacefully on Feb. 11th in his home surrounded by family. He was married to Elsie on July 8, 1960, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is survived by Elsie Zungri, his brother Gino Zungri, and sister in-law, Aida and numerous nephews and nieces.
In celebration of his life the following Services will be held:

Funeral Mass on Wednesday, Feb. 20th, 10 a.m. at St. Raphael's Church in Goleta, Ca.
