Giordano was very passionate about being a parent to his three girls and engaged in every activity under the sun with them over the years. He brought a smile to everyone’s face, in all that he partook in, and left a mark on each person he met throughout his life. He was an amazing life-long athlete. Giordano spent most of his free time coaching and even started training and participating in triathlons shortly before turning 50! He inspired countless young athletes as a basketball and football coach throughout the Stoney Creek area; instilling in them his goal-focused work ethic, determination and drive. Giordano was also was a very fun, bubbly, and comedic personality. Anyone who knew him, knew he always enjoyed a good laugh, no matter the weather or occasion, he never failed to pull a sarcastic joke out of his back pocket, until the end. Being a jack of all trades, Giordano was a leader, goal-setter, hard-worker, and most importantly a terrific father.
Giordano loved the outdoors – discovering, teaching and investigating and sharing his love of sports and nature with his daughters. His heart will never be forgotten, and he will be deeply missed by all.
Special thanks to the staff of St. Peter’s Hospital, specifically Charmaine, in addition to Dr. B. Khambalia and Dr. J. Paulseth for their care and compassion.
