WORCESTER-Carmine A. Zamarro, 70, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family after a long battle with cancer.

 

Carmine was born in Worcester, son of the late Amerigo and Rosemary A. (Ermilio) Zamarro. He has lived in Worcester his entire life and attended Doherty High School when it first opened in 1969. After graduation Carmine was the number one selection in the military draft, however he joined the Army National Guard and retired as 2nd Lieutenant. Carmine continued his education at Merrimack University where he earned a degree in accounting and then Babson University where he earned his Master’s in Business Administration. Carmine had very strong faith and was a member of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church for many years. While a parishioner there, Reverend Michael P. Bafaro was his guiding light offering inspiration and prayers every day while Carmine’s daughter Christen was at Children’s Hospital. 

 

Carmine was predeceased by his beloved daughter, Christen in 1989. He is survived by his son, Marco C. Zamarro and his wife Meghan; his siblings, Amoret Zamarro Beiter, wife of the late Albert Beiter, Amerigo “Rick” Zamarro, Jr. and his wife Ruthann, and Paul A.

Carmine also leaves his longtime friend and soulmate of 20 years , Barbara Garlick, his dear friend, and helper who meant the world to him, Zenel, and many nephews, nieces, great nephews, and great nieces. 

 

Carmine had a strong work ethic. Upon his father’s passing in 1977, he and his brother Rick worked professionally and harmoniously together for 45 years. His main interest in business was taxes with the A.A. Zamarro and Associates and Real Estate with A.A. Zamarro Realty. Carmine also had several other entrepreneurial endeavors.

 

Beside work, Carmine enjoyed gardening, especially when friends and neighbors arrived to pick vegetables and his infamous round, ripe tomatoes. Other interests were his hobby of attending antique car shows and visiting flea markets. He was a longtime member of the Model A Ford Club. Carmine will be missed by his family and many friends.
