You could always write away for his death certificate and if it was filled out correctly, it should contain his parents names. I'm providing a link..not sure if you can view it.
I think Luigi Angelo Arzani was my grandfather.. Was 'yours ' married with Canepa Andreina ? I know my grandfather been in Usa for a while and he was lover of motorcycles and cars, unfortunately I don't know a lot about him and his life in USA.
