Rolando Visentini, age 72, of Melrose, passed away on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. Beloved husband of 48 years to Michelina (Pastore) Visentini. Dear brother of Rolanda DiScipio, Medford, MA and Lina Visentini, Genova, Italy. Devoted father to his son, Agostino, daughter Daniela, son-in-law Alex, and adoring grandson Lorenzo. Loving uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Harry and I enjoyed the video this morning. Years ago I caught Rolando singing, Ave Marie in his shop. It was awesome. He could have sang professionally for sure.

Like a ray of sunshine Rolando's cheerful manner touched everyone's heart. He entered the business building, with a wide smile. Good morning, he'd say.
Many of us loved him, especially when he openly talked about his plight with cancer. I became a mother figure while watching his perseverance, fighting breast, lung and liver cancer.
While Taking cancer treatments, he managed to get up and drive to work. It was if he had nine lives.
All that changed Sunday, May 17. He had trouble breathing with difficulty talking. He cut our conversation short. This time, he didn't say, Love you, TJ. Instead he said, Bye, bye TJ.
I managed to say, Bye, bye.
He died in ICU less than 24 hours later.
