TAHOE and#8212; Twenty-five-year Incline Village resident Tony Bruno recently partied for three consecutive days to commemorate his 90th birthday. Starting Saturday, Aug. 27 daughter Anne Ritchey and husband George of Tahoe City feted the nonagenarian with his wife of 65 years, Jeanne, with presents, a ravioli Italian dinner and three cakes for a truly special person. Then on Sunday Bruno arrived at the West Shore Cafe in Lynn and Greg Gibesonand#8217;s 1932 Plymouth which has been in Gregand#8217;s family from its very first sale back in the day. Monday night was yet another party at the Incline Village Tennis Center where Bruno still plays a competitive game of tennis. After three sets and a barbecue one would assume he might get tuckered out.

Bruno, retired, became a doctor 65 years ago after graduating from Tulane Medical School. He is truly a remarkable man. Not able to attend the festivities were grandson Christopher Ritchey and wife Emily due to Christopherand#8217;s Green Beret work schedule.
