It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of Armando Merlino, at the age of 95 on Sunday, May 23, 2021. Armando was born on October 21, 1925 in Mignano di Monte Lungo, Italy. He moved to Toronto, Canada in 1951, and from nothing, he mastered the trade of carpentry, created a family, made many friends, and built his history.
Loving son of the late Antonio and Angela Merlino. Beloved husband of the late Carmela Merlino (nee Carcone). Cherished father of Robert (Mary) and Diana. Devoted and proudest “Grumpy” of Aaron, Caitlin and Nicole (Kosta). Dearest brother of his 2 surviving sisters, Iolanda and Maria, and 4 deceased siblings, Giuseppe, Arturo, Mimma and Carmela.
Armando will be incredibly missed by all who knew him. He truly was one of a kind, even regarded as a “legend”, for his quick wit and humour, years of wisdom, helping hands, and selfless soul. He touched many lives throughout the years.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society https://www.cancer.ca/, would be appreciated by the family.
Due to Covid 19 restrictions there will be a private funeral mass and burial on Friday, May 28, 2021 at 10:30 am. To view the Funeral Mass, please click on the link below.
