Carmelo will always be remembered as a cross between Peter Pan and Rip Van Winkle. He should have been born at an earlier time but nonetheless, he has managed to live a varied life, travelling the world and has the most extraordinary talent for meeting people and immediately bring out in them their lost youth.
Today he is a proud father of a teenage son, Luciano.
The three generations of Petix’s on the male side known to me all have different ages of life. The tightly knit family with true Sicilian breeding adjusted to London life but are just as at home in any part of the world.
This selection of photos represent different parts in Carmelo’s life of which there are thousands, but each one tells a story and as time goes on we will add to this story.
But perhaps the finest story of all should be about his unique safety deposit box, otherwise known as “socks” coupled with his passion for the old double Decker red busses.
I will add to this story and tell you some of the interesting facts of the photos.
