My deepest condolences to the family of Carmen Basilio. I was fortunate to have watched him battle in the ring over the years. He was a tough, gutsy bpxer, who became a hero to a countless number of people from all walks of life.

Following retirement after a brilliant career in boxing, his years as a member of the Physical Fitness Staff at Le Moyne College (where I came to know him well), Carmen was truly an inspiration for large numbers of young male students.

Arrivederci to a great friend! REQUIESCAT IN PACE

Dearest Josie and family: Blessings and prayers of comfort to all on the passing of one of the greatest! Carmen was a wonderful friend and inspiration and all will miss his spirit. The days and evenings spent in Canastota will be cherished forever. God Bless all! The Zale Family

So sorry to hear of Carmen's passing. I remember meeting him and many other boxing legends at a Neutral Corner Boxing Dinner at Valles's Steak House in Hartford during the late 80's with my husband, former New England Welterweight Champ Billy Kearns. I have pictures of Carmen and myself along with many fond memories of that evening. Carmen was always gracious and very kind. Our thoughts and prayers to the family.

Josie, So sorry to learn of Carmen's passing. I'm so appreciative of his autographed picture a few months ago. I will always remember his time at Aquinas during the 50's. You will be in our prayers and thoughts.
