It is with saddened hearts that the family announces the passing of Gildo Gioia at the age of 91 years old.
He will be missed by his son Carlo (Elide), son Tony, daughter Teresa (Luc) and daughter Mary (John) as well as grandchildren/great grandchildren Christina (Gianni), Nanci, Mike (Diana, Aria), Elissa (David, Sophia), Amanda (Silvio), Ryan and Vanessa.
Gildo was born in San Massimo, Campobasso, Italy. In 1959, he arrived in Montréal to make a better life for him and his family. He loved to share his memories of Italy around a game of Scopa or playing Risk with his children and grandchildren.
One passion that was dear to his heart was his garden and his fruit trees. His figs, pears and apples were greatly appreciated around each household. Papa, you will be missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
