May 25, 1937 - December 5, 2020
Rio Rancho, New Mexico- Carlo LiRosi, 83, passed away on December 5, 2020. He was born in the town of Vizzini, Province of Catania, Sicily in Italy, the son of Salvatore and Carmella LiRosi. He met his wife Jenny in Italy and they married in 1960, later immigrating to Brooklyn, New York. As a lifelong entrepreneur, he owned a barbershop in Manhattan, NY, then Salon di Carlo in Albuquerque, NM. He had an unbelievable green thumb and spent as much time as he could outdoors in his garden. Above all, he loved people- his family, friends, colleagues, and clients. Carlo is survived by his wife of 60 years, Jenny LiRosi, sons Salvatore LiRosi (Michele LiRosi) and Joseph LiRosi (Mark Trejo), grandchildren Jeneva Vazquez (Michael Vazquez), Carlo LiRosi, Michael LiRosi (Kyla LiRosi), Andre LiRosi, Giavana LiRosi, and Sebastiani LiRosi, his brother Philip LiRosi (Josephine LiRosi), sisters and brothers-in-law, and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
