Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest condolences and sympathies to Suzy and Nicole. Carlo gave me one of my first jobs- working summers in his shop in Leonia. He was such a diligent, hard-working, decent man, i will never forget his valuable lessons about integrity and motivation. He also had a great sense of humor, and I will remember him always with a smile. Carlo was a wonderful, great person, so proud of Suzy and Nicole, and I will miss him dearly.

  2. On behalf of the Thomas Randolph Agency and staff we send our deepest sympathy to the Desantis family. Carlos was wonderful and kind person and he will be greatly missed.

  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We all new and cared very much for "Carlo", he was a wonderful man.

  4. Sincere condolences to the DeSantis family. Carlo was truly one of the "good guys".

    People as kind and genuine as he are not easily found in this day and age.

  5. My prayers and thoughts are with you Suzy and Nichole. Carlo was a part of our family and a special man who was never short of a great comment as I grew up, be it a life lesson, a bit of wit or just a push to get on with it. I also worked in the Leonia shop as a teenager and have the fondest memories of everything he shared, his knowledge, integrity, work ethic, humor and humanity. He was also supportive to me as an adult with a young family. Words can’t express it, I will always hold him dear in my heart.
