Antique Vintage 14

Carl R. Gorrasi

November 11, 1935 ~ December 19, 2021 (age 86)


Carl R. Gorrasi died peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, December 19, 2021, the longest full moon night of the year.  He was predeceased by his lovely wife, Patricia, his siblings, Frank (Irma), George (Mary), Donald (Charlotte), and Charles.  He is survived by two siblings, Grace (Ron, deceased) and David.  Carl is the beloved father of Rick (Cathy), Mark (Theresa), Greg, Kevin (Katherine), and Lisa (Steve).  Carl leaves behind many nieces and nephews, who affectionately nicknamed him "Champagne Carl."  The nickname stuck, as did others..."Ole Gringo, Carl the Floorwalker, Unk, and Crazy Carl."  All, a testament to his fun loving ways.

Carl enjoyed an early retirement from the City of Cincinnati and made the most of his time traveling with his wife, visiting family & friends and exploring the States.  He enjoyed restoring antique furniture and made numerous lifelong friends while enjoying this hobby.  Carl will be missed by many as he was a gregarious, charming and generous husband, father, sibling, uncle and friend to all.

Don't be sad that Carl died, be happy he lived!

Memorials may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
