It is with profound sorrow, we mourn the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather Rinaldo Lauretti, on April 17, 2020 at the age of 96. Beloved husband of Agnese for 73 years. Cherished and loving father to John (predeceased, 2014) and Lisa (Ian Pearson). Proud Nonno of Eric, Alexander and Jessica (Chuong Thrin) and great-grandfather to Luca. He will forever be remembered by his many nieces and nephews and their families.

During this unprecedented situation with COVID-19, it is with very heavy hearts that our family has made the difficult decision to hold a private funeral with our immediate family, in honor of our dear husband, father and grandfather, Rinaldo Lauretti. We have chosen to do this in order to minimize the threat of spreading the coronavirus. Ultimately, we recognize that the health and safety of our family and friends comes first. We appreciate your love and support at this time, and we welcome your messages of condolence.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to either the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Lung Association in memory of Rinaldo.

A tribute and celebration of his life will be held at a later date, when it is safe to do so.

With our deepest sympathy, we say goodbye to my dear friend, Rinaldo.

As a young man we became friends. Rinaldo taught me so much through the years about business but mostly about the true meaning of friendship. Even though we saw each other sparingly the past few years, when we spoke on the phone or saw each other we picked up where we left.

I am deeply saddened but so grateful we had time together in this life,

My dear friend...

Quando tornavi a Vallecorsa per le vacanze, era una festa annunciata, in prossimità della Madonna a cui tenevi in modo particolare.
Ai ''Purciri'' c'era un via-vai di parenti ed amici che venivano a salutarti. Le serate erano belle e spensierate con risate che rimbombavano nella vallata. Spesso approfittavo la mattina per scambiare opinioni e farmi raccontare storie vecchie da te e ''su Maruccio'', anche zia Agnesina raccontava dei trascorsi a Visano con i miei. Ricordi ancora vivi. Una volta mi tagliai un dito, occorrevano dei punti e tu non esitasti un momento a prendere la macchina ed accompagnarmi in ospedale, rimasi impressionato per la tua scaltrezza nella guida, nonostante l'età che non dimostravi affatto. Ricordo con affetto i tuoi auguri sistematici in occasione delle feste natalizie.
Sei stato il primo a cui ho regalato alcune delle mie poesie. In quella della preghiera alla Madonna ho pensato anche a te , di cuore ad un grande uomo legatissimo alla sua terra. Venni a
salutarti per la tua ripartenza...mi commossi, tu facesti altrettanto e abbranciandomi mi dicesti Mi dispiace per non averlo potuto fare. Siamo nati entrambi il 21 febbraio...qualcosa in comune ce l'hanno regalata le stelle...
Ti porterò sempre nel cuore. CIAO, ''zio''Rinaldo! Un abbraccio caloroso a ''zia'' Agnesina. Condoglianze a tutta la famiglia. Massimo Cipolla.

Le nostre più sentite condoglianze ad Agnese e tutta la famiglia per la scomparsa del nostro caro amico, Rinaldo., che abbiamo conosciuto originalmente tramite la palestra del Columbus Center. Rinaldo ed Agnese erano e sono carissime persone che ci hanno sempre accolti con grande cuore e generosità. Pace e bene dalla famiglia di Joseph Martinello, Teresa Santoro e Renzo Martinello.
