On October 19, 2018, Sergio passed away peacefully at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital surrounded by his loving family. Beloved husband to his late wife, Teresa (1989), he was also pre-deceased by his partner of over 20 years, Fernanda (2014). He was a loving father and father-in-law to his children - Gianni Violin (Susan), Diana Christie (Greg), Doris Weiler (Steve). He is survived by his brother Joe Violin (Rosetta). Nonno will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by his grandchildren Grace, Charlie, and Jack Violin, Claire & Elissa Christie as well as his nieces and nephews.
Sergio immigrated to Canada in 1954 from Romans di Varmo in northern Italy. He and Teresa settled in Port Credit, working hard to raise a family. A skilled cabinet maker and craftsman, Sergio employed these skills during his long career with the Dufferin Peel Catholic School Board. He was also an avid gardener, fine wine maker and “Nonno of All Trades”, much to the delight and benefit of his family and friends.
The family wishes to thank the caring and supportive staff at Sunrise of Oakville Retirement Residence, his home for the past year and half and the medical staff at Oakville Trafalgar Hospital. In lieu of flowers, if desired, donations to Parkinson Canada would be appreciated.
