elevated LKfHY Today we celebrate the life of our beloved Dad Giuseppe who passed away peacefully on December 3, 2021.
elevated LKfHY Born in 1934 in Lioni, Avellino, he was one of eight children born to Carlo and Elisabetta Di Conza.
elevated LKfHY Looking at old pictures of our Dad, (and remarkably there were tons) you would never have known about his humble beginnings. He took great care and pride in his appearance. He had movie star good looks and loved his cuffed jeans, Cary Grant dress pants, stylish hats and aviator sun glasses. But he only had eyes for our Mom, Margherita. He often told us about their early courtship and how another boy suitor had planned a dance party and invited our Mom but not our Dad. Bad mistake. With the help of his buddy, they disconnected the power to the house. No more dance party and more importantly no more suitor. He got the message. To the seal the deal, our Dad convinced our Mom to elope. How romantic! Our Dad loved our Mom more than anything.
elevated LKfHY He also loved the Leafs! He rarely missed a game. For years he promised to host a big party if the Leafs ever won the Stanley Cup. Knowing the unlikelihood of that happening, we opted to host Leaf game nights for him instead. We all wore our jerseys and the Leafs usually lost.
elevated LKfHY He also loved his kids. We each had a special bond with him that was unique and individual to us. He was happiest when his kids were happy.
elevated LKfHY He welcomed our spouses (Peter, Mario, Dina, Vito and Pino) with open arms and loved them as if they were his own kids.
elevated LKfHY Then the grandchildren came and came….Lisa Marie, Joey, Alexander, Christopher, Stefan, Julia, Cassandra, and Christian and even one great grandchild, Milana. He was also so happy when Robbie and Rifai joined the clan. He was so proud of his ever growing family.
elevated LKfHY He taught us to enjoy life, dance, drink and be merry.
elevated LKfHY Today he joins his brothers Vincenzo and Tonino in heaven enjoying their company over a glass of wine and a game of brisk.
elevated LKfHY Thank you Dad for all you did for our family. We love you and will miss you forever.
elevated LKfHY May You Rest In Peace.
