Carl Emili, formerly of Greensburg, passed away on May 31, 2019 at the age of 87 after years of battling NPH. Born in Crabtree, he attended Saint Bartholomew Roman Catholic Church, spending his adult life in rural Greensburg and his later years under the loving and compassionate care of Rosebrook Assisted Living in Sarver. After his service in the Army Signal Corps during the Korean War, he returned to start his work career in the foundry at Walworth Valve Company in South Greensburg. He later joined the Housekeeping staff at Latrobe Area Hospital (now Excela Health) from where he retired in 1997. Throughout his life he enjoyed gardening, landscaping, a clean car, and helping others. His easy-going nature and infectious smile made everyone a friend he just hadn’t met yet. His sense of humor was disarming and endearing. His appetite was endless. A kid at heart, he enjoyed spending hours with his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Nazzareno and Ida (DelCostello) Emili; his wife, Gladys (Cantini) Emili; and his siblings, Mary Louise (John) Ferretti, John (Viola) Emili, Jessie (Bob) Marto, Olga Emili, Herman (Shirley) Emili, Beatrice (Nick) Hyduke, Rita (Greg) Grabiak and Phyllis Jane Emili. He is survived by his sister, Cecelia (John) Antinori; his son, Gregory (Debra) Emili; his grandchildren, Maureen (Adam) Caperton, Rachel Brown (partner Matthew Beran), Laura Stefancic (fiance Elijah Boyer) and Maria Emili (spouse Joshua Petika); seven great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews. Friends will be received from 11 AM to 12 noon Wednesday in the LEO M. BACHA FUNERAL HOME, INC., 516 Stanton Street, Greensburg where a funeral liturgy will follow at 12 noon with the Rev. Justin Matro, OSB as celebrant. Inurnment will follow in Calvary Hill Cemetery, Crabtree. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hydrocephalus Association at www.hydroassoc.org.
