Giovanni ‘Gio’ Bruno Mediati – Sept. 19, 2003- June 13, 2019

Giovanni ”Gio” Bruno Mediati, of Creswell, was born on Sept. 19, 2003 to Rick and Laura Mediati. He died on June 13, 2019 at the age of 15.
Gio was an exceptional student, classmate, teammate, friend and stellar baseball player. He just finished his freshman year at Creswell High School. Prior to starting school in Creswell, in his eighth-grade year, Gio attended O’Hara Catholic School in Eugene.
Gio was known as ”GQ,” ”IS” (Italian Stallion) and for his huge smile. His outgoing, athletic and bright personality touched everyone that he came in contact with.
He loved his friends and family and his special, close, strong bond with his brother. He was a friend to everyone and touched everyone’s heart. He loved giving hugs, and every hug meant the world.
He loved baseball. The San Francisco Giants were his favorite team, but he also loved watching all the great players throughout the MLP.
Gio loved listening to all kinds of music; drawing; golfing; learning to play the piano; driving; hanging out with his friends; attending school activities; his bling; Pepsi; and his shoes.
He was treasured and was a blessing to us and to all. His spirit and heart will live in all of us and make us stronger every day. He is watching over us as our angel at every step, moment, pitch, bat, play, and all throughout our lives.
Gio is survived by parents, Rick and Laura and his brother, Giuseppe ”Joe” Rocco, all of Creswell. He is also survived by his close family: Nonie, Grandad, Grandma, uncles, aunts, cousins and friends, his community, and the love of baseball.
Please join the family for his Celebration of Life at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 29, 2019 on the baseball field at Creswell High School, 33390 Niblock Lane, Creswell.
