It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Filippo on Tuesday March 7, 2023 at the age of 96. Beloved spouse of Catena of 70 wonderful years. Loving father of Mary (Carmen), Jennie (Marty) and Rita (Michael). Proud Nonno of Tania, Anthony (Annie-Laurie), Philip (Nicole), Mark (Alex), Karen (James), Andrew, Vanessa (Adam), Amy (Peter), Isabella (Jess) and Jack. Bisnonno of Cody, Andrew, Casey, Ellie, Eve, Hudson and Sheri. Filippo will also be missed by his brothers and all his nieces and nephews. Filippo immigrated to Canada in the early 50s to provide better opportunities for his family. Catena joined her husband in April 1953 where they started a new life together in Toronto. Filippo was quite the gardener, an outdoor enthusiast, and could “MacGyver” anything. Filippo will always live in our hearts and we will treasure all the memories we have had together.
