We would like to thank LHSC for the exceptional care and compassion given to him and our family. We would also like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the PSW team who cared for him during these last few years.
Vittorio sacrificed for all. He was an amazing father, a supportive husband, sweet and funny, a hard worker, and a very loyal friend to many. He did so much to help so many people. He loved his tools and could fix anything. He loved being in his workshop. He loved sitting outside by his garden and sharing stories with his
neighbours and friends over a glass of wine. There were always friends (compares)visiting with him. And when he wasn’t at home, you would find him at his second
home, playing cards with all his friends at The Marconi Club. He was passionate, persistent and strong-willed and wanted to live everyday to the fullest. He always
believed anything could be done with a positive attitude (con buona volenta, si può fare tutto). We already miss you so much.
A private Funeral Mass and Entombment has been planned. In lieu of flowers, donations to the St. Mary's Church Restoration Fund would be appreciated.
