Da Toronto con immensa tristezza, la famiglia Marcantonio comunica la scomparsa del suo patriarca, Giuseppe. Figlio di Cesare e Carmina Marcantonio. Amato marito della gia’ scomparsa Maria Buzzelli in Marcantonio. Rispettato padre di Carmine (Geraldine), Sandro (Maria), Daniela (Graziano) e Tony (Diane). Affezionato nonno di GianPiero, Sarah, Joseph, Laura, Daniele, Alessandro, Christopher, Aidan, Matthew. Bisnonno di Harper e Quinn. Nato a Castel di Sangro, L’ Aquila, Italia il 20 Aprile, 1926. Giuseppe e’ rimasto per sempre un fiero Abbruzzese e un’orgoglioso Canadese per l’accoglienza che questa vasta terra ha dato a lui e alla sua famiglia dal lontano 1968. Lo spirito e l’anima resteranno per sempre attaccati alle sue radici Italo- Canadese anche dall’alto dei cieli, dove adesso riposa in pace. R.I.P. caro Giuseppe. La famiglia Marcantonio

Dear Marcantonio Family,
My deepest condolences to the entire family. I grew up for a vast majority of my life living next door to Maria and Peppe. I witnessed the close bond that he shared with his wife, kids, grandchildren and one of his dearest friends, my Nonno Quirino. Peppe will not be alone, he will be reunited with all those who have past before him and I hope that provides for you all some comfort at this very sad and difficult time.
God Bless,
Stephanie Santos-Spraggett

A poem by Ellen Brenneman

His Journey’s Just Begun

Don’t think of him as gone away
his journey’s just begun,
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched…
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.

Our deepest heartfelt condolences to the Marcantonio family. May your many cherished memories of Peppe help you through this sorrowful time.

Natalie Zeppieri & Philip Compton

Ciao Giuseppe,
ti ricordi 27 anni fa ? non mi volevi neppure conoscere per i motivi che sappiamo noi!! Poi ci siamo conosciuti meglio quando siamo andati a Castel di Sangro per accompagnare Oriente 🙏 . Infine siamo diventati amici a Toronto , complice la macchina per fare la conserva😳 Da allora è scoccato il colpo di fulmine. e, anche se non sempre la pensavamo alla stessa maniera specialmente sul calcio “troppo JUVENTINO “ ci siamo sempre rispettati e voluto bene. Quando arrivi salutami la tua Maria e dille che, prima o poi, riuscirò a fare i mostaccioli come i suoi 👍
Sei stato..sei e sarai sempre nel mio cuore ❣

Giuseppe Marcantonio, known by everybody as Peppe, was a man loved by family and friends. Peppe was a man of integrity and clear principles of family value. An honourable man that will be missed and will never be forgotten. I will deeply miss seeing him at my “ hompip” , and my numerous visits to his house, sharing deep conversation about vegetable garden, soccer and Formula 1 race. Thank you for being my friend and father figure. Rest in Peace my dear friend and a hug to You for Eternity.

Zio Pepe, you were full of life and always lived it with a huge smile on his face and with a welcoming warm heart.
Carmine, Sandro, Tonino, Daniela and families, our hearts are heavy knowing your pain. Dad had a fabulous life and you were all such a big part of it. You all gave him such joy and know, it was time for him to reunite with his brothers and sisters in his next journey of life ... with much love Patricia (Marcantonio) & Tony Demarco and family.

My beautiful Zio, you put smiles on my face every time I saw you. Your resilience is unmatched. Even when I see you in photos now you beamed into my heart. We were miles away but I always had you close. I hope that you are where you want to be and your brothers and sisters are with you once again. Condolences to all. With heavy heart, Cesarina & Charlie Dispinzeri (Marcantonio) Melbourne, Australia
