Aldo Andretti passes away


INDIANAPOLIS — Andretti Autosport announced the passing of Aldo Andretti, Mario’s brother, on Wednesday. Aldo was born in 1940 in Italy. While his life took him on a different path than his brother’s, the family said Aldo was often at races supporting his family. A statement on his passing said that Aldo was proud to have shared his life with wife and high-school sweetheart Corky and their five children Carolyn, Mark, John, Mary Jo and Adam.

Aldo, my loving twin brother, my partner in crime and my faithful best friend every day of my life was called to heaven last night. Half of me went with him. There is no eloquence. I’m shaken to my core.

A mass and burial will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 5, at noon, at St. Malachy Catholic Church in Brownsburg, Indiana. The family will receive friends from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 4, at Stevens Mortuary in Indianapolis, Indiana.
