In Celebration of

Lawrence (Lorenzo) Indovina

March 6, 1937 -  May 22, 2020

Lawrence (Lorenzo), 83, passed away peacefully on May 22, 2020 in Mississauga at Credit Valley Hospital with the loving support of his family. He was born to Salvatore Indovina and Benedetta Serraino in Termini Imerese, Italy, on March 6, 1937. Lawrence travelled across the ocean on board MS Saturnia and landed in Halifax, Canada in 1954. He became a Canadian citizen in 1959 and married Giuseppina (Josephine) Battaglia in 1961 in Toronto where they started their family. Lawrence, a loving husband and proud father, was a dedicated, hard working man who enjoyed dancing, bowling, car racing, the Leafs and his friends. Despite battling Parkinson’s for most of his retired life, this didn't stop his love of growing vegetables and watching sports, especially watching his grandchildren play hockey.

Lawrence is survived by his brother Giuseppe and his wife Mimma; sister Providenza; his three children, Joanne and her husband Mike, Joe and his wife Martha, Sal and his wife Lynne; and his grandchildren, Nicole, Megan, Matthew, Nathan, Janine, Graeme and Charlie. He was preceded in death by his wife, Josephine in 2002.

A private family service has taken place at Assumption Cemetery. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

The family would like to recognize and thank all the staff at the Village of Erin Meadows for their support and care of Lawrence. Special thanks to Roselyn.

For those who wish, memorial contributions may be made in memory of Lawrence to Trillium Health Partners Foundation or Parkinson Canada.
