CARLESIMO, Enzo

December 18, 1956 – Sezze, Latina, Italy
October 24, 2013 – Calgary, AB

It is with great sadness we announce the loss of Enzo at the age of 56. With his family at his bedside he gently closed his eyes and joined his father. With dignity Enzo fought a brave and courageous battle with cancer.

Enzo was born in Sezze, Latina, Italy and immigrated to Canada with his family in June 1965. He shared 31 wonderful years with his wife Serafina and was a loving and proud father to his 2 sons. Before his passing he had the joy of welcoming a granddaughter and a daughter-in-law into his heart.

Enzo was an avid fan of the Edmonton Oilers and Eskimos. He also never missed a Grand Prix race on TV cheering his Ferrari team on. He enjoyed gardening and spending time with family and friends, especially his Sunday morning coffee with his mother. Enzo started his career as a hairstylist, owning his own salons. He later moved on to a career with Graham Construction. One of the projects Enzo worked on and loved was the Glenmore/Macleod underpass where he painted the wall of sculpted fish. Think of Enzo when you drive by as we called them “Enzo’s fish”. We will miss his Italian/English accent when he answered the phone “Yello” instead of “hello”. He will be forever remembered as a gentle soul loved by all.

He is survived by his loving wife Serafina; and sons, Salvatore (Ashley) Carlesimo, Carlo Carlesimo; granddaughter Keightyn Carlesimo; mother Giulia Carlesimo, sisters, Lori (Domenic) Arcuri and Graziella (Nick) Lupi; in-laws, Joe and Franca DiAlessandro; brothers-in-law, Antonio DiAlessandro, Carlo (Christina) DiAlessandro; nieces and nephews, Joanna (Eric) Brophy, Julia Arcuri, Nikki and Daniella Lupi, Adrian and Clara DiAlessandro; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins from Calgary and Italy. He was predeceased by his father Salvatore Carlesimo.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at Corpus Christi Catholic Church (Corner of 4th Street and Northmount Drive N.W.) on Monday, October 28, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

Funeral Mass will be concelebrated at Corpus Christi Catholic Church (Corner of 4th Street and Northmount Drive N.W.) on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. Entombment to follow at Queen’s Park Mausoleum.

  1. Enzo Ribecco & Family :

    Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy – to you Sera, Sammy, Carlo, ‘nonna’ Julia, Arcuri family & Lupi family.
    Death brings pain that only time can heal,
    No words can ease what we truly feel;
    But with God, his joy is eternally sealed,
    And cherish his memories that death can’t even steal,
    Lift up a smile for he is already in the paradise.

    Sara, Sammy, Carlo, Giulia, Lori, Graziella, The Carlesimo and DiAlessandro Family and All Extended Family,
    Our heartfelt sympathy to all of you for your Great Loss. Enzo was a very courageous man with such a positive spirit even when his journey was overwhelming with hurdles. He is an inspiration of courage for all who knew him. I found this poem that maybe Enzo would want me to share with you:
    Don’t cry for me today,
    I wouldn’t want it this way.
    Be strong and smile,
    for you will see me in a while.
    I know you miss me,
    but now in Heaven I will be.
    Do not keep your sad face,
    I am in a much better place.
    Do not let your tears fall,
    for I cannot wipe them all.
    Yes, my life wasn’t long.
    But I’m begging you to be strong.
    Live every moment as if it were your last,
    I won’t forget any memories that have passed.
    Cherish life and love as I watch you from above.
    As I remember all of the good things,
    I come to see I have gotten my wings.
    It is time to go and fly,
    as your guardian angel I will try.
    Don’t cry for me today,
    I’m on my way.
    Soaring through the sky,
    I watch all of you telling me goodbye

    He is with God now, no more hurdles, no more pain. Rest in Peace Enzo.
    Ilva and Carmine
