Carmen was always a class act and treated everyone with respect. My Mom introduced me to him and everytime after meeting me he always asked about Madge. Great Guy. Rest In Peace Carmen & God Bless You & Your Family Too

A good childhood memory for me was watching Friday Night Fights on our B/W TV with my father and grandfather in the 1950's. Whenever Mr. Basilio fought, there was extra excitement for the event in my house. To me, at age 8, 9 or 10, he was bigger than life. I wish I had told him "thank you" for competing with all he had and for the pleasure it brought me to watch him compete. As I reflect now on those Friday Nights, I believe he was one of my first teachers about courage, toughness and commitment. May he rest in peace and may his family be comforted in their loss.
