In 1958, Giuseppe immigrated to Canada from Cosenza, Italy, in search of a better life for his beloved wife and three children. He settled in Sudbury, where he provided for his family by working in construction and at the Sudbury General Hospital. Giuseppe was a strong man who took great pride in his workmanship and Italian heritage. He was a life member of Società Caruso and a member of the Calabria Social Club. Giuseppe was an avid gardener who valued his family and enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude for the care and compassion that was provided by the staff on the 4th floor of the North Tower of Health Sciences North.
Donations to the NCF Cancer Centre would be appreciated.
