John Carl Cozzetto

Cozzetto, John Carl

December 11, 1925-December 8, 2011

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of John Cozzetto of Rossland. John was born in Rossland and spent his entire life in the community that he loved. John served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War II and following the war, he was a life-long member of the Royal Canadian Legion in Rossland.

John worked at Cominco for 41 years prior to retiring in 1983. He enjoyed fishing and gardening and was an avid hockey fan. John was a remarkable chef and his delicious Italian entrees will be sorely missed. John generously volunteered his time in support of community activities and he delivered meals-on-wheels in the Rossland area for many years.

John is survived by his sons Donald (Pat) and Terry (Judi), four grandchildren—Darcy, Dana, Domenik and Danielle, and numerous nieces and nephews.

At his request, there will be no memorial service. Donations in John’s name may be sent to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 14, 2081 Washington Street, Rossland, B.C. V0G 1Y0
