Giovanni Colatruglio
January 01, 1932 – September 13, 2020
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Giovanni Colatruglio on September 13, 2020, at the age of 88. Giovanni is survived by his loving wife Maria of 64 years and his three children Michele (Pam), Rita and Filomena (Rick). He also leaves behind his greatest Pride and joy, his eight grandchildren, Amandalina (Tom), Johnny( Cesar),Daniella (Brenden), Marc (Taylar), Marleen (Adam), Sara ( Fil)Kristina (Kevin) and Juliana and his most recent additions to his family are his three Great grandchildren, Mia, Sophia, and Payton.
Giovanni was born January 1st 1932 in San Bartolomeo in Galdo, Italy. At the age of 16 Giovanni left for Belgium to work in the coal mines where he worked hard for 3 years to save money so he could immigrate to Canada. He returned back to Italy to say goodbye to his family and embarked on a new adventure to Canada in February 1955. After immigrating to Canada, in July of 1955 he began his 38 year career at CN Rail where he made numerous friends and left a lasting legacy.
Soon after our father began writing to our mother and not long after they decided to get married and they were married by Proxy on September 1st 1956. Maria arrived in Halifax in January of 1957 and our father met his beautiful bride at the port and travelled back to Winnipeg by train together. That was the beginning of their 64 year marriage.
Giovanni and Maria welcomed their son Mike in 1960, followed by their daughter Rita and several years latter arrived Filomena. They shared an incredible relationship of strong work ethics and instilling family values as they raised their family, building a solid foundation. They enjoyed weekend day trips in the summer months to the beaches with friends who were like family. They did everything together, from gardening, and wine making, to cooking and raising their children. Giovanni never missed an opportunity to take his family to a gathering almost every weekend was spent going to socials, and other celebrations. Giovanni loved to dance with his wife and you could always see him spinning the love of his life across the dance floor.
When Giovanni retired in 1991, it allowed him more time to follow his passion for gardening at his favourite place, “The Farm”, where he not only grew vegetables but he raised chickens, turkeys, pigeons and rabbits. He would also fill his days with daily swims at the Seven Oaks Pool and daily walks to the Garden City Shopping Center where he would meet his numerous friends.
Giovanni had a strong passion for life and laughter and his smile would always light up a room when he walked in. He was always ready to offer a helping hand to anyone in need.

Riposa in pace!
