Gino Bolla: September 25, 1968 - September 04, 2016

Gino Bolla, age 47 of Naperville, IL, formerly of West Lafayette IN and Echenevex, France passed away suddenly September 4, 2016 after a tragic accident. Gino was born September 25, 1968 in Villatora, Italy to loving parents Giuditta Bado and the late Rino Bolla. He is survived by his cherished wife of 12 years Petra Merkel and two beautiful children Luca and Anna Bolla, as well as his sister Cinzia Bolla and in-laws Hans-Werner and Renate Merkel, and uncountable friends and colleagues. A graduate of University of Padova, Gino was a world-renowned scientist specializing in instrumentation for particle physics, working at Purdue University and Fermilab, where he became the leader of the Silicon Detector Facility. Gino played crucial roles in both the CDF silicon tracker and CMS forward pixels. He had a knack for making the impossible possible. On top of his talents in experimentation he was known for an enormous generosity of spirit, always ready to play the role of mentor and share his expertise. He was welcoming to all, and no one felt like a stranger in his presence. Gino found great joy in preparing gourmet food made with love to share with his many friends and colleagues.
