Paul E. Bekavac Funeral Home
Carmine Anthony John Bossio, age 70, of South Park, passed away peacefully following an acute event on Friday, November 11, 2022 at Family Hospice in Lawrenceville. Carmine was born June 21, 1952 in Charleston, WV to the late Filippo and Lidia (Depasquale) Bossio. He subsequently resided in Brookline, Baldwin Township, and then South Park Township for the last 30+ years. Carmine achieved a degree in sciences followed by undergraduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh. He was employed since the age of 16 until 62 primarily in the bakery and pastry business. This included but was not limited to managerial positions at both Giant Eagle and Kuhn’s Market, then co-ownership of a pie and pastry business. He was an avid fan of the Steelers and his true joy in life was spending time with family and those he considered family. He was a fun-loving, overt man who could effortlessly achieve an audience at any time and in any place.
