Celetti, Paul Joseph
Peacefully passed away at F. J. Davey Home on Monday, February 10, 2020 at the age of 94. Beloved husband of the late Rosina (Minnetti) of 63 years.

A lifelong resident of Beverley Street. He worked at Algoma Steel and enjoyed 35 years of retirement. He was a master griller on his charcoal barbeque. Paul was a joker, always kidding around or telling a story. He was happiest when talking about or going to the casino.

Paul was a loving husband, father and “Nonno”. He had an endless supply of chocolates for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was truly a kid at heart.

Paul was born in Sault Ste. Marie to the late Pasquale & Margaret (Vernelli) Celetti. Paul is survived by his daughters Anna (Tony) Martin of Sault Ste Marie and Paula (Joey) Genovese of Marquette, Michigan. Paul is also survived by his six grandchildren Mora (Joe) Bruno of Sault Ste Marie, Paul (Meagan) Martin of Saline, Michigan, Sarah Martin (Geoff) of Ottawa, Scott (Meaghan) Martin of Sault Ste Marie, Karly Genovese of New York, New York, Bryce Genovese of Chicago, Illinois and his step-grandchildren Cory Genovese and Christi (Mike) Parker of Marquette, Michigan. Nonno was also blessed with ten great-grandchildren Pietro, Anthony, and Annabella Bruno, Emma, Grace, Mary, and Thomas Martin, Charlotte, Claire, and Colin Martin. Paul leaves behind his brother, Mario (Wanda) Celetti of Sault Ste Marie and many nephews and nieces. Predeceased by his siblings, Mario, John (Elda, Iona), Olga (Sam) Williams, Tony (Margaret), Albert (Connie), Joe (Rita), and Rosalie (Herb) Lederer.

A celebration of Paul’s life will be announced at a later date. The family would like to thank Sandra, Lisa, Lucy, and Dorette who made sure he was well fed each and every day in his home. Also special thanks to Diane and Sophia who cared for him, as well, and shared in his many funny conversations. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff on Birch Lane (second floor) Davey Home for their excellent care and compassion.

When I think of Uncle Paul, I remember his ready smile as well as the mischief in his eyes when he spoke. He was always a cheerful presence at any family gathering when we were young. My condolences to Anna, Paula and families. You are in my thought and prayers.

With sympathy,
Mary Jo (Celetti) DiFilippo

I have very fond memories of Uncle Pauli as well as Auntie Rosina. Uncle Pauli was the life of the party of all the family gatherings. He will always remain forever in my thoughts and memories.
