DE SANTIS, Rocco John

The family thanks God for the gift of Rocco who was called home on November 22, 2017 at the age of 63 years.  Beloved husband of Carla (nee Viselli) for 42 years.  Loved father of Cynthia, Rocco, and Phillip.  Cherished father in law of Ron Cunningham, and Elizabeth De Santis.  Adored nonno of Alexander, Grace, Nicholas, Gino, and Angelina.  He will be missed by his mother, mother in law, sisters, brothers in law, sisters in law, many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.  Rocco is reunited with his father, father in law, and all family and friends who have welcomed him home. He enjoyed to construct and repair anything.  His family was most important.  He loved nature and enjoyed raising pigeons. Rocco was a 3rd Degree Knight of Columbus, Holy Family Council 4386.  Rocco loved baseball.  He started at an early age playing catcher for Windsor Central.  In the years 1971 and 1972, Windsor Central made the Canada All Stars which sent him catching ball for Big League Baseball at the Big League World Series in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.   He was also scouted by the Montreal Expos.  Dear Rocco, you will be missed. I was hoping to grow old with you. To the grandchildren, look closely and you will see nonno’s love all around you.   Donations made to Canadian Mental Health or to the Windsor Essex Cancer Centre Foundation would be appreciated by the family
