is a very unique individual and his many interests reach far beyond the businesses he owns
and operates. Cosimo
had a love for singing and entertaining since he was a young boy. He has
total of 4 albums at this period in time and a 5th one is in the works. His singing
career has spanned over the last 35 years and he has built a strong following of
supporters and is also a household name in the Northwestern Ontario area. He performs
yearly on the Mother's Day telethon that raises money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cosimo is also actively involved in minor hockey, his childhood
love. He has developed his own team called the Filane's Falcons as well as his own
hockey organization called Fallen Rock Minor Hockey. Cosimo was tired of watching
the problem of only the good players playing and the rest of the boys sit on the bench and
watch. He started his own team and association to give the "not so great"
players a chance to play and develop in a sport that he loves.
He has also written a novel based on experiences in small town minor
hockey entitled You Can't win em All. The novel has gotten good
reviews from notables as Don Cherry and Richard Rhomer.
Cosimo also loves the sport of boxing and has coached and traveled
with his boys, Domenic, Gerry and Mario worldwide to a variety of competitions such as the
Ontario Winter Games, Canadian Championships and 2 Olympic Games ('92 Barcelona and '96
