Obituary

elevated xh6uB Giancarlo was born on September 6th, 1954 in Dipignano, Prov. Cosenza, Italy and passed away peacefully on May 28th in Aurora, Ontario.

elevated xh6uB John emigrated to Canada at the age of four with his loving mother and his older brother Roni.   They joined their husband and father who resided in Toronto.

elevated xh6uB From an early age John was drawn to nature; love of the land, the freedom of open spaces, of birds and animals, especially dogs.

elevated xh6uB He led a fiercely independent lifestyle utilizing new strengths as he lived – as well as a fondness for trucks and a passion for fast motorcycles.  He developed his social and interpersonal connections from others, as well as the importance of bonds and loyalty.   He chose the Dundalk area where he farmed for forty years, then retiring to the Markdale community surrounded by the atmosphere he loved.

elevated xh6uB He left his house there when he relocated to Richmond Hill where he cared for both elderly parents until their deaths.   He is survived by his brother Roni and Marilyn, several aunts and multiple cousins, especially Rosemary Naccarato who was his constant support through a long and difficult journey of illness.

elevated xh6uB Rest in Peace, Giancarlo.
