Lifetime baseball player Gino Panelli had several nicknames. Among them: the “mayor of Santa Cruz.”

Panelli, a muscular 5-foot-9, two hundred pounder, had a presence. He dressed well, his hair was styled and he made people feel important with his firm handshake, precise smile and contagious laugh.

“It was just so infectious,” commented friend Matthew King. “It was another level of feel-good. … He was always positive and authentic, and laughter was never more than a blink away.”
