Obituary of Carlo Longo
Carlo A. "Tony" Longo, age 82, beloved husband of Patricia Guerrera Longo of Monroe, passed away on Friday, October 13, 2017 at St. Vincent's Medical Center. Born in Pontelandolfo, Province of Benevento, Italy on November 3, 1934, Carlo was the son of the late Domenico and Angela Maria Guerrera Longo. Carlo was a talented marble and tile setter for over 50 years and worked at Martino Tile, Benny Tile, and Marani Tile before opening his own business, Longo Tile. He loved to work in his garden and enjoyed hunting and reading, but the pride and joy of his life was his family.
In addition to his beloved wife, Patricia, of 61 years, survivors include: his loving daughter, Angela Maria Pelletier and her husband Ronald of Monroe; three granddaughters: Melissa Faherty and her husband Joseph of MA, Nicole Mather and her husband Thomas of Monroe, and Victoria Pelletier of Fairfield; and two cherished great grandchildren, Scarlett Mather and Carter Faherty. He is also survived by his sister, Agnese Ciarlo, of Middlebury, and several nieces and nephews.
