Carlo Ferrari, 62, of Westminster, MD went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, February 22, 2015 at the Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, FL. He was born July 15, 1952 in Asmara, Ethiopia to Italia and Severino Ferrari, who preceded his death. Carlo chased the love of his life, Paula Ferrari, around the world for 7 years before she finally surrendered to his grand romantic gestures. Together they raised five beautiful children who tagged along in their father's globetrotting. After living in the Phillipines, Grotten, CT, Annandale, VA, and Bremerton, WA, the family eventually settled down in Westminster, MD in 2001. A former Pararescueman for the Air Force, an Army Green Beret, and a Strategic Weapons Officer for the Navy, Carlo was a proud Veteran who continued serving his country as a Civilian working for the Department of Defense. At the helm of a project that shaped the vision of his department for the next fifty years, he found himself at the top of his field. He had exceptional work ethic and took great pride in his vision. However, what speaks most about Carlo is the special value he placed on fostering deep relationships with co-workers. He never missed an opportunity to mentor and befriend, so much so that coworkers often became akin to family. Most importantly, Carlo was a family man. In his final moments, Carlo reiterated that his family was his proudest accomplishment. While he wished more than anything he had more time to spend with his family, he lived life with passion, heroism, and great strength. In the eyes of his children, he was simply a hero. He is survived by his four sons, Lucas Ferrari, Chad Ferrari, Tony Ferrari, and Michael Ferrari; one daughter, Laura Ferrari; and one daughter-in-law, Alexia Ferrari; as well as many extended family members that were close to him. Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm, Sunday, March 7 at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, 116 East 2nd Street, Frederick, MD. To send a personal condolence or for further information, please call St. John's at 301-662-4676. If you wish to send a memorial contribution in lieu of flowers, you may send donations to the Wounded Warrior Project.
