It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Carlo Di Pede on Thursday, June 2, 2016. Carlo, in his 92nd year, was the beloved husband, for 61 years, of Tina Di Pede. He was the dear father of Joe (Florie), Mary (Domenic Iafrate), and Claudio (Liz Amarelo). Carlo is fondly remembered by seven grandchildren: Andrew (Natasha), Adam (Stephanie), Olivia, Daniel (Vanessa), Marcus, Eros, and Ethan Rodrigues; and by two great-grandchildren: Cora Iafrate and Leonardo Di Pede. He is survived by his brother Paolo (Maria) Di Pede, by his brother-in-law Luciano Pellegrini (late sister Giuseppina) and by his sisters-in-law Gina Di Pede (late brother Mario) and Vincenza Di Pede (late brother Domenico) of Italy. Carlo was predeceased by twelve siblings.
Carlo will always be remembered for his kind and gentle nature; endless positive attitude, his joyous spirit; deep faith and endless love for family.
