We host a open Country Jam every Wednesdsay, 5:30pm until 8:30pm at the Winking Lizard Tavern, 3634 Center Rd. Brunswick, Ohio 44212. And the first Saturday of the month, 7:30pm until 10:00pm at Z's Cream & Bean. 2706 Boston Rd. Hinckley, Ohio 44233

 The Hudson-Wise Foundation mission is very simple. Make life a little better for children with Autism and special needs. We do this with by providing basic needs, like school supplies, coats, hats and in some cases even groceries. Most of the children we help are either profoundly disabled and/or profoundly poor. We just want to give these children a chance, try in some little way to life a tiny bit easier.


 We need to purchase more educational products for teachers and students in special needs classrooms. We also need to sponsor workshops for teachers and health care aides who work with autistic and special needs children and adults. We are always looking for donations for Team Breanna

For more than 7 years, the Hudson-Wise Foundation has devoted its energy to passionately advocate for children with Autism and special needs. Find out how you can contribute to the future of someone in need through donations of money and time. .

                        Obituary for Lawrence M. Gasparro Sr.

Lawrence “Larry” Gasparro was the beloved son of the late, Pietro and Josephine Gasparro. Born on 2.27.32 in New Lexington, Ohio - Passed on 7.02.20 in Olmsted Township, Ohio.

In 1996, he retired from the Teamsters Union, Local #407 after nearly 40 years. An avid Cleveland Indians fan “that guy can’t hit,” he also found occasional faith in his Cleveland Browns. He loved attending local car shows and meeting with his car friends. For the past 50 years, he routinely reminisced about his long lost 1950 Mercury Coupe “back when I was a gangster.” His music and musician friends were his lifelong passion. He learned to play harmonica as a teenager. He played harmonica with various bandmates for over 70 years. Recently, he was a musician with the Hudson-Wise Foundation for God’s Special Children. Over the past few years, he also enjoyed a couple of larger gigs with “Mwenso and the Shakes.”

He was very proud of his grandchildren. He did his very best to attend concerts/games etc. for all of his grandchildren: Jono, Grace, Cory, Amanda, Michael, Carli, Tyler, Cooper, Nick, Mason and Olivia. Recently, he was blessed with three great-grandchildren, Kellen, Leonello and Ella.

He is survived by his wife, Beverly and her two children from a previous marriage, Mike Ambrose & Debbie Ambrose and three children from his first marriage to the late Mildred, Larry (Linda), Janet Muldoon (Kevin) and Mike (Dalia).

The family will receive friends on Sunday, July 12, 2020 from 12-2 PM in the Chapel at Sunset Memorial Park, 6245 Columbia Rd. North Olmsted; where the Funeral Service will begin at 2:00 PM.
