January 29, 1930 – March 22, 2021
Mr. Carmino “Carlo” George Rossetti, age 91 years, passed away peacefully in Southbridge Pinewood on Monday, March 22, 2021 with his family by his side.
Carlo was born in Port Arthur on January 29, 1930 and was proudly raised in Westfort. He attended local schools before starting his career with Great Lakes Paper, where he was a dedicated employee for 48 years, until retirement in 1992. Carlo met the love of his life, May Andrews and they were married on February 2, 1957. Together, they raised their daughter Lisa, and enjoyed travelling as a family. Time spent at Arrow Lake was always a passion. Carlo was a huge animal lover, especially his dog Lucy. He also loved cutting hair, fixing lawn mowers and sipping back a good cold beer.
Carlo was a kind, gentle, soft hearted and, most importantly, patient man. His last few years were spent at St. Joseph's Hospital, until he was moved to Pinewood Court in November, 2020. Carlo enjoyed joking around with everyone that cared for him. He was known for his great sense of humour and was content with whatever life threw at him. He never complained about anything. Even though she was far away, Carlo talked to his daughter Lisa every day. He will be always remembered by his family and friends.
He was a long-time member of St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church and the DaVinci Centre.
Carlo will be deeply missed by his wife of 64 years, May; daughter Lisa Langley and two beautiful grandchildren, Lauryn and Marissa Langley. He is also survived by his brother John; sister-in-law Cheryl Rossetti; niece Jessica (Jay) Matyczuk and nephew Ricky Blewett and his family in Rochester, Minnesota as well as numerous other nieces, nephews and relatives.
He was predeceased by his parents, Rocco and Lizzie Rossetti; siblings Henry, Art, Frank, Rita and Lena; and his in-laws Nellie and John Andrews.
A private family service will be held for Carlo in St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church. Interment will follow in St. Patrick's Cemetery. Should friends so desire, donations made in memory of Carlo to the Huntington Society of Canada or a charity of choice would be greatly appreciated.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Westfort Chapel, 420 West Gore Street at James.
