ANTONIO FERLITO concluded his life of 87 years on December 27th, 2020. Daughters Rosaria and Antonella (whom he raised with their mother Giovanna, wife of 33 years) feel the loss of his unmatchable warmth and energy. With enormous pride he leaves two adored grandchildren (Lily and Sophia).
Arriving in Canada from Italy as a young man at 17 years of age he would be passionate about both cultures and build a life for himself through continuous dedication to his work, principally in a long career as a hairstylist. He supported his children in their dreams in every way he could, was a spirited follower of popular sports, and increasingly into his later years revealed himself as not just traditional but also an artist in the kitchen. Not only are we heartbroken but his pizza and cassatelle will be greatly missed.
A private family gathering was held at York Funeral Centre on Monday January 18, 2021 with entombment following at Beechwood Cemetery.
