October 24, 1933 - June 3, 2019
With deeply saddened hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved papa and nonno. He will be forever remembered by his wife Maria of 57 years of marriage, his children John (wife Gloria and grand daughter Daniela), Silvana (husband Todd) and Antonio. Our father was born in a small town in Italy called Guardiagrele. It was during a time of struggle but caring community. He went to school for a few years and later worked to support his family. He worked faithfully with the hope of a better tomorrow and the personal pleasure he felt of getting the job done and making a difference. At age 24, papa left his family in Italy to come to Canada, in search of employment. After a few years, he returned to Italy where he met the love of his life and were soon married. Our parents were married 57 years on May 20. Papa loved his family and his friendships. He was peaceful, kind, generous and worked hard. Helping others was his way; with passion and dedication. He was gifted in fixing and building things; with a patient mind and strong gentle hands.Cement finishing was his specialty in his Construction career where he was recognized as one of the most skilled workers. Pa appreciated all the simple pleasures and was grateful for a fulfilling Life. If papa had the opportunity to pursue a formal education, he could of been a great engineer. Papa was a Good man with a Very Special Heart! You will be missed by so many of us. We look forward to the day where we will see you again. We love you very much.
