It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Attilio Chiaravalloti (1935-2021), peacefully on May 28, 2021. Attilio was born in Satriano, Italy and was the beloved son of the late Domenico and Teresa. With his loving wife of 54 years Sadie, (nee Sguigna), he raised 2 daughters, Andrea (Ralf) and Michelle (Ryan). Attilio was the beloved Nonno of Sarah, Sabrina, Luca and Benjamin. Attilio will be lovingly remembered by siblings Giovanni, Peter, Anna and George, and he was predeceased by siblings Vincenzo, Giuseppina, Antonio, Domenico, Concetta, Emilio and Benito.
Attilio came to Canada in 1956. In Toronto, he had a successful career as an auto mechanic and business owner. We will remember Attilio for his dedication to his family, for his sense of humour, for his shrewd business acumen and for his never ending energy and determination. Even through great physical challenges in his later years, he always stayed positive and never gave up on the hobbies that he loved – he worked in his garden almost until his last day – “piano, piano” was his motto. Attilio loved his family, loved spending time with them and supporting them. He wanted everyone to succeed. Every time he was with them, he lit up like a Christmas tree, speaking in their dialect, he was home.
Attilio, you will be greatly missed. Thank you for giving us such a good life, teaching us to work hard, never give up, keep peace and that family always comes first. We love you and will miss you Nonno, and we know that you are in Heaven tending to a beautiful garden. “Piano, piano” dear Attilio.
