He was born the youngest of 13 children in Resana, Treviso, Italy and came to Canada at the age of 21. He provided for his family as a skilled carpenter and home builder. He had a passion for the outdoors, hunting and fishing with his close friends and family. He also enjoyed gardening, taking special care for cultivating lots of garlic, as well as making his homemade wine and salami. Always there to lend a hand in any way to anyone. When not outdoors, he loved watching soccer, Formula 1 and game shows.
Nothing was more important to him than family, and each gathering was a celebration.
We love him, miss him and will always remember the man, father, and Nonno who taught us so much.
We thank the generous staffing care from the Georgetown Hospital, Mississauga-Halton LHIN Services, and Saint Elizabeth Healthcare for all their support in his final days. Special thanks to his family physician Dr. Ahmed Raouf-Alkadhimi, Cynthia Stone, Claire, Vince, Mark Raqueno (NP) and nurse Vadim and the many others who helped coordinate his care at home. Thanks to Fr. Mark Sullivan for his blessing.
In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society is greatly appreciated.
