Buffalo Bill” DiNatale finally was able to get his wish to move back to his beloved Buffalo this summer, which he never wanted to leave but did so to provide for his family during a poor economy in the late 80’s.
A humble man who always remained loyal to the Buffalo sports-teams and the Buffalo people, no matter where they moved him.
He sadly passed away at Kenmore Mercy Hospital on January 10, 2020 and was brought to Dietrich Funeral Home. He will be laid to rest in St. Augustine Florida, where his family resides.
He leaves behind his daughter Tianna V. DiNatale; his mother Vincenza A. DiNatale; and his sister Rosanna M. Jacobsen; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends. A kind hard working gentle man who was so loved and will be greatly missed.
