Carlo Testa

December 27, 1928 — April 23, 2022

Carlo Testa, 93, of Shrewsbury, passed away on Saturday, April 23, 2022, in the comfort of his home, surrounded by his loving family.

Carlo is survived by his wife of nearly sixty-five years, Marie (Palermo) Testa; three sons, Michael J. Testa and his wife Catherine of Worcester, Steven P. Testa of Auburn, and Richard C. Testa and his wife Tracy of Worcester; a brother, Samuel Testa of Dudley; a sister, Adeline Bujnowski of Shrewsbury; five grandchildren, Christopher and his wife Jessica, Ryan and his wife Sarah, Stephen, Tia, and Adriana; five great grandchildren, Madison, Benjamin, Landon, Bentley, and Kaiden; many nieces and nephews.  Carlo was born in Bergamo, Italy, son of the late, Virginio and Maria (Ciocca) Testa; they moved to France when he was two years old, and then settled in the United States, specifically Worcester, when he was twenty-eight years old. 

Carlo was proud to have worked as a glazier with his father at National Glass for twenty years, before working for Harding Glass Company, retiring in 1990.  Carlo enjoyed going to the beach, Opera, Pavarotti, and The Three Tenors.  He was enthralled with Bocce, Soccer, and golf.

His life was always focused on family and enjoying the special times together.  Carlo loved his wife and knew that they shared the greatest gifts of love and family.  He was proud to brag about “my three sons”, as he thought the world of them; and they gave him grandchildren, who became rays of sunshine in his life.  He was a member of Saint Anne’s Church in Shrewsbury.

The family would like to thank the cardiology team at Reliant, Dr. Kumare, and Joan Arkenelis for going above and beyond for Carlo and his family.

Calling Hours for Carlo will be on Thursday, April 28, from 9 a.m. until his Funeral Service begins at 11 a.m. in the MERCADANTE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 370 Plantation Street, Worcester.  Interment will follow at Mountain View Cemetery, Shrewsbury.
