Our sincere and heartfelt condolences on the passing of a good neighbor and friend. We often shared a glass of wine and home-made salami just talking on the porch about the "old country", blessings Joe..................Angelo & Jennifer Nasso

Loved how at the end of all fishing trips would end with a glass or two of wine and a 1/2 hour conversation in Italian with your dad. Every time Gilbert would remind him that I don’t speak Italian and we would laugh and laugh. Always in my memory bank RIP

My heart is heavy with the sadness of Gio’s passing.
May he forever sing and dance with all his family and friends gone before him.
He was a wonderful neighbour and a truly warm hearted man.
Always with a smile and a helping hand.
May the love and memories he made forever stay alive in the hearts and minds and on the lips of those whom he loved and touched.
Rest In Peace Gio 💜
