elevated 9VsOb While serving in the Italian army Loriano met the love of his life Francesca and married her shortly thereafter, spending 60 wonderful years together. In March of 1957, Loriano and Francesca boarded the SS Cristoforo Colombo and embarked on their new life in Canada, working tirelessly to provide for their family. Loriano was always quick to laugh, tell jokes and enjoyed reminiscing about his life in Italy. From humble beginnings working at Canada Bread Ltd., Loriano found his calling in the construction industry, rising to foreman and participating in the development of some of the largest residential buildings of the time. From there he decided to venture off on his own and successfully ran his own company for many years until his retirement. Following this, Loriano and Francesca devoted their time to helping raise their grandchildren who they adored until their final moments.
