elevated sWdHM Born in Italy during a tumultuous time, he dreamt that one day he would be given the opportunity for a better life. He boarded the boat to Canada at a very young age in hopes of fulfilling that dream and he did. Unable to speak the language and with very little resources he was able to secure a job, send money home to Italy in order to a build house for his parents and start a family of his own. He met Pina and his whole world changed. He lived a beautiful life.
elevated sWdHM He will forever be remembered as a hard worker, excellent bacce player, the ultimate gardener and so proud of his wine making.
