A longtime Marin resident, Benjamin DeCarlo of San Rafael died last night at Ross General Hospital after a long illness.

DeCarlo, 74, was a native of Italy. He came to the United States when he was 8 years old and settled with his family in Pennsylvania, where he met his wife, the former Ann Costello. They moved in 1929 to San Rafael, where he lived the rest of his life.

DeCarlo was a construction worker on the old California Bridge, near the Marin Motor Movies. During World War II he worked as an electrician at Marinship in Sausalito. Following the war he went to work for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. as a lineman. He retired from PG&E about 10 years ago.

An avid fisherman and gardener, DeCarlo was a member of the Marin Rod and Gun Club.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a son, John DeCarlo of San Anselmo; a daughter, Paula Tuttle of San Rafael, and six grandchildren.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday at 11 a.m. at St. Raphaelís Church in San Rafael. Rosary will be said tomorrow at 8 p.m. at Keatonís Mortuary.
