Francesco De Gregorio
We are heartbroken to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and all-round beloved friend, Francesco De Gregorio, on December 18, 2020 at the age of 77 years.
Francesco was an immensely proud Italian ex-patriot and a respected family man. He was loved by all and will be greatly missed. Francesco was the most kind and funny man, devout to his wife of 53 years whom he dearly loved. He loved Italy, and anything and everything Italian. He loved a great meal, and a good bottle of wine. And he loved his family, especially his grandkids in his retirement.
Francesco is survived by his wife, Ada (nee Pino); children, Angela De Gregorio, Gino (Ida) De Gregorio and Ivana (Virgil) Lewis; grandchildren, Bianca Medaglia, Francesco De Gregorio, Vanessa De Gregorio, Sofia Lewis and Jordan Lewis; mother, Palmera “Angela” De Gregorio; siblings, Teresa (Michele) Bruni, Eugenio “Gino” De Gregorio (Susan Tymchuk), Anna De Gregorio and Pino De Gregorio; uncle, Orlando (Angela) Cuglietta and numerous cousins, extended relatives and friends.
Predeceased by his father, Eugenio De Gregorio; brother, Antonio “Tony” De Gregorio; and uncle, Francesco De Gregorio.
The family is forever thankful to all who have reached out to us during this difficult, and yet already, unprecedented time.
Visitation will be held on December 28 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Park Memorial Funeral Home, 9709 – 111 Avenue, Edmonton. Due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19, those wishing to attend are asked to register at bit.ly/francescodegregorio.
