Our beloved parents, Bruce Baldi, 65, and Diana (Wozniak) Baldi, 66, have departed this earthly
plane to be amongst the stars. They were always smiling, adventuring, and holding hands
during their devoted 35-year marriage. Our family is heartbroken by this sudden loss, but knows
their beautiful soulmate journey continues to unfold.
Bruce was born on December 3, 1956, Englewood, NJ to Gaston and Anne Baldi  and Diana was
born on September 3, 1955, in Martins Ferry, OH, to Mitch and Flora Wozniak.They met at the University of Maryland in an organic chemistry class where they indeed had a lot of chemistry. They fell in love exploring Washington, DC. Diana fully supported Bruce’s ambition to get his PhD at Washington State University, and after he moved across the country they each took on side
jobs to cover their long-distance phone bills.
Both lovers of nature and travel, Diana and Bruce brought their three daughters on countless
road trips and adventures around the world such as Europe, the Brazilian Amazon, and Alaska.
Whenever a business trip popped up, Bruce and Diana seized the opportunity to travel together
and explore China, Australia, Trinidad, and New Zealand. Their zest for life was truly
unparalleled and service to others was equally as important.
Bruce and Diana devoted their time and energy to nonprofit organizations supporting creativity,
community, and conservation. Their contagious joy and selfless character shines brightly in the
memories of people around the world who had the pleasure of meeting them, whether once or
many times during life-long friendships.
Bruce and Diana are survived by children Brooke Baldi, Siena Baldi, Josie (Pickens) Gruber,
and Mike Pickens; siblings Karen Baldi, Donna Baldi, and Mike Wozniak. They were preceded
in death by their parents and siblings Maretta (Baldi) Olson, Joe Wozniak, and Cindy (Wozniak)
Hart.

Park in Wheeling, WV. Additional details about their memorial, including a website to share
