With heavy hearts and deep sorrow, we announce the passing of Giovanni Ferraro in his 89th year, surrounded by his family on Monday, October 11, 2021 at Mississauga Trillium Hospital. Beloved husband of Luigina, loving father of Linda (Andrew), Julie (Linus) and Susie (Paul) & Maria (John). Grandfather of Nicole, Christopher, Daniela, Matthew, Madeline and James, Laura and Robert.
He was born on February 19, 1932 in Pietrafitta, Cosenza, Calabria, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1952.
Lovingly cherished by his wife of 63 years, he will be missed by all those who knew him. Giovanni was a hard working man with a generous spirit and a self-taught jack of all trades. He was always willing to lend a hand. Repairing cars, laying ceramic tile, fixing the plumbing, tending to his precious garden and making his incredible soppressata and prosciutto. He will be remembered for his love of family, his sharp wit and sense of humour.
His family appreciates the support they have received during this difficult time.
