With a heavy heart and deep sorrow, we announce the peaceful passing of Renzo Sandro Vertolli on Monday, September 18, 2023, at the age of 87. Renzo's life was a testament to his love and devotion to his family, and he will be immensely missed.
Renzo was the beloved husband of Anna for a wonderful 63 years. He was the loving father of Riziero “Reg” (Andrea), Diva (Mario), and Anne (Vincenzo). He was a proud Grandfather to Alyssa (Chris), Quinton, Christian, Samantha, Jacob, Gianluca, Simone, and Great-Grandfather to Marielle.
Renzo was a dear brother to Pasqualina (Raimondo), Luigina (Bruno), Marcella (Antonio), Romeo (Mary), and Renata (Luigi).
Born in Campotosto in the province of L’Aquila, Italy, to Riziero and Rosa, Renzo embarked on a life-changing journey when he immigrated to Canada in December of 1952, seeking a brighter future with new opportunities. He worked as a high-pressure welder, millwright, and boilermaker at Ontario Hydro, Lakeview Generation Station (1968 - 2001). He was known for his expert welding skills and was always eager to lend a helping hand to friends and family.
Renzo enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, and instilled in them his hard work ethic and the importance of family.
