In memory of

Luigi Gubiani

May 7, 1929 -  December 15, 2019

After a long and full life, Luigi Gubiani, 90, passed away peacefully on the morning of December 15, 2019.

Gigi, as he was lovingly known by his family and friends, was a hardworking Italian who travelled from Italy to Canada, arriving at Pier 21 in Halifax on June 8, 1953. He spent his first years in northern Ontario and then made his way to Toronto where he married in 1959 and worked for over 30 years at the Toronto Brick Company. A true ‘contadin’ (farmer) at heart, he spent his later years tending to his garden, making homemade wine and repairing bicycles and lawn mowers for his neighbours on Langford Avenue.

He is survived by his supportive and loving wife, Rosina, who was by his side for over 60 years and cared for him always.

Dearly loved father and father-in-law to Nadia & Faris, Marco & Jennylee, Ornella & Greg.

Eternally proud Nonno to his six grand-daughters, Jacqueline, Victoria, Zara, Amanda, Sabrina & Sierra.

He is fondly remembered by his sister, nieces and nephews, and friends in Italy and Canada.

Special thanks to the wonderful care from the nurses and doctors of the Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit, the Palliative Care Unit, as well as the Nephrology Team at St. Micheal’s Hospital. If desired, donations to St. Michael’s Hospital in Luigi’s name would be greatly appreciated.
