In a post to SanRemo Bakery and Café’s Instagram page Thursday, the Bozzo family confirmed that Natale Bozzo had died after six weeks in hospital. “He fought very hard, he was in good health prior to this, and we learned of his failing health through very difficult phone calls from the hospital and thankfully we were able to say goodbye,” the post reads.
