Patriarch. Immigrant. Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather. Giuseppe was born in Calabria, Italy in 1927. He was a man of two worlds. He built a home and family in his native Italy, marrying his wife Maria in 1949. Post-World War II, he was part of the generation of Italians that saw that the prospects for his future descendants laid abroad. At great personal sacrifice, Giuseppe and Maria uprooted their family and moved to Ontario, Canada; a country where they did not understand the language and had no promises of work. They were the ultimate prospectors, led by a notion that things may be better in this new country. With perseverance and hard work Giuseppe and Maria built a prosperous home for their family and together made a second life for themselves in Canada. Giuseppe died peacefully, at home, with family by his side, on Friday, November 8, 2019, at the age of 91. Beloved husband of Maria for 70 years. Loving father of Rosa. Proud grandfather of Carlo, Maria and Joseph and Great-grandfather to Sofia, Aida and Victor. Giuseppe will be missed.
