Luciano P. Sproviero, of Bridgewater, loving husband and childhood sweetheart of Sara Sproviero, died peacefully at his home on Thursday, March 1, 2012. He was born on May 25, 1929 in Rovito, Italy, son of the late Salvatore and Cristina (Gualtieri) Sproviero.

When he wasn’t working he could be found gardening at his home.
