Obituary

Santarossa, Carlo:
Passed away peacefully on July 26, 2020 in his 71st year.
Beloved husband of Berta Annalisa Santarossa (Rottenbucher). Loving father of Anita Santarossa (Chris MacAlpine) and Sonia Santarossa (Fausto Perez). Dear and loving grandfather of Emily, Isabella and Andrew Perez. Brother of Jack (Florence), Lino (Angela), Virginio (Rosemary), Carmelo, Monsignor Angelo, Giovanna, Natalina and Alma. Predeceased by his parents, Giovanni Santarossa and Italia Maria Santarossa and brother Marco (Maria), Aldo, Adelia and Sylvanna Santarossa and nephews, Francesco, Johnny and John. He will be greatly missed by all his family, extended family and friends. He will also be missed by many of his followers of his radio program "Radio Italia" at CKWR 98.5 FM. His master craftmanship in plastering for over 50 years is present in many homes and businesses across Ontario and world wide. He also volunteered his time and voice with the Waterloo Regional Police Male Chorus and Coro Allegria of the Italian Cortina Club in Kitchener. A lover of music, family, friends and food, his spirit will live on in all our great memories with Carlo. He was an avid and dedicated fan of the Italian soccer team, Juventus. He enjoyed his gardens and fruit trees in his back yard, growing organic foods enjoyed by all his family and friends.

Reception at 290 Bridgeport Rd. E, Waterloo immediately after the service. Parking is available at St. Agnes School on Bluevale St. as well as parking lot on Goldbeck Lane. Relatives and friends must RSVP to attend Carlo's visitation and service and face masks are mandatory. Private family burial at Mount Hope Cemetery, Waterloo at a later date.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Grand River Hospital Foundation or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).

Dear Berta
Greg and I think of Carlo often when we look at the walls and ceilings in our house, plastered by Carlo. He was a true master craftsman and we loved him dearly. I appreciated when he sang while he worked as his voice would boom throughout the halls. We had great conversations about food recipes and we are forever thankful for you both sharing your recipe for spaghetti sauce. We will never forget Carlo as he will always be part of our lives. Sending big hugs to you.
Greg and Marie Voisin

So sorry to see a about Carlos if you do not remember us maybe you remember some hot tub fiends several years ago at Willow Wells. I ended up with knee problems and had to quit. Of those friends several now are gone.

May you retain good memories of Carlos he was a great man.
