In Memoriam: Guerino Mercanti, founder of Mercanti Bros. Auto Body Repair

Hamilton, Ontario — Collision Repair magazine is saddened to hear that Guerino Mercanti, founder of CARSTAR Canada, has died following a six-year battle with dementia.

Mercanti grew up with his two brothers and nephew in Hamilton, founding Mercanti Bros Auto Body Repair, the predecessor to CARSTAR Collision and Ontario Auto Collision. He regularly came by the shop and put in a few hours of work–especially when his three sons bought two of the business locations.

Beyond the collision repair industry, he shared a passion for Italian card games, bocce and hunting with his friends in Hamilton’s San Remo area.

“Papa, we will miss your generous heart and kind smile. You were strong until the end, and you deserve to rest in eternal peace. We will love you forever,” wrote family members in an obituary.

In lieu of flowers, the family wrote that donations to the Alzheimers Society of Canada would be appreciated.
