Corti came to San Rafael from his native Italy 62 years ago and had operated the monument works at Mt. Tamalpais Cemetery for many years and resided with his daughter in a Fourth street apartment.
Corti was the widower of the late Mrs. Louise Corti and leaves a daughter, Mary Corti of San Rafael; one son, Lawrence Corti of San Rafael; and two grandchildren, Mrs. Miriam Kroll and Lawrence Andrews.
The funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at Keaton's Mortuary, San Rafael, followed by interment in Mt. Tamalpais Cemetery.
A Death Notice in the same paper mentions Mr. Corti's late daughter Christine Andrews.
