God called Francesco on August 3, 2020 at the age of 87.
He will be forever missed by his loving wife of 53 years, Maria (nee De Rose) and his two daughters, Giulia and Rosamaria, who adored him.
Francesco came to Canada in 1953 to find a better life for himself. As a new immigrant, he faced many challenges with determination and drive. He married Maria in 1967 and they worked hard together to build their home. He was very proud of his daughters whom he supported as they pursued their education and enjoyed spending time with them. Francesco was a strong and quiet man who faced illness for almost 30 years and his devoted wife was his primary caregiver. Francesco was a generous man who was always happy to help everyone in need. He enjoyed having company and sharing espresso and biscotti with family and friends.
Francesco will always be remembered by his sisters Carmela (Varone) and Ultimina (Bruni). He is now reunited in heaven with his parents, Pietro and Rosaria, as well as his brothers and sisters: Luigi, Giacinto, Mauro, Teresa and Maria.
