CIBOTTI, Roberto Of Walpole, formally of Hyde Park, passed peacefully on Dec. 9 surrounded by his loving family at the age of 89. Beloved husband of Bambina (Pinti) of 61 years. Devoted father of Caterina Colson and her husband Doug of Franklin, Annamaria Cibotti of Waltham, and Sandra Kemp and her husband Doug of Bellingham. Cherished brother of the late Maria Cibotti, Vincenzo and Giuseppina Cibotti. Loving "DaDa" of Nicholas and Gianna Colson. Also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends.
Funeral from the Alexander F. Thomas & Sons Funeral Home, 45 Common St., WALPOLE, Friday morning at 9 followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at Blessed Sacrament Church Walpole at 10. Visiting Hours Thursday evening from 4 to 8 at the Funeral Home. Relatives and friends invited. Interment at St. Francis Cemetery Walpole. Roberto spent the summer months in his garden, which was his sanctuary, and he also enjoyed jarring tomato sauce every August with his wife, niece and nephew and making homemade wine in the fall in his Cantina with his grandson and son in law.
He loved being in the middle of social situations which is why you could find him playing cards with his best buddies at the Italian American Club in Norwood every Friday Night and Sunday morning and playing the lottery, hoping to win the jackpot was a daily ritual.
What he loved the most was his wife's cooking and spending time around the dinner table with his family, including his two grandchildren that were his pride and joy.
