Jon J. Rotatori Sr. – Woonsocket

Jon J. Rotatori Sr., lost his 10-year battle with cancer on July 4, 2017, and returned back to the “COSMIC SOUP.” He was born on November 19, 1949, son of Doris and Oscar Rotatori.

During his short time passing through this place, he was able to accomplish and experience many great things. Early on in his life, he surfed a few beautiful beaches in Hawaii, hitch-hiked across the country numerous times and even lived in a cave for a short time in the Mojave Desert. He also enjoyed time as a race car driving instructor at the Jim Russell International Racing School.

On May 30th, 1985, he married Pamela (Ryan) Rotatori. He owned and operated two successful construction companies. Lifetime Shingle Co., Inc. was created in 1979, which later transitioned into Allied Enterprises in 1992. His passion to experience the unknown led him to become a master scuba diver instructor for 10 years. He was an avid reader of literature, and a lover of history and science. He chose to donate his body to Anatomical Gift Program at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

He is survived by his loving wife, Pamela, his two sons Eric and Jon Jr., two daughters Melissa and Amanda and three grandchildren, Joseph, Rossi and Jackson.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to The Audubon Society, 12 Saunders Town Road, Smithfield, R.I. A celebration of his existence will be private.
