It is with heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of Felice Giustiniani on May 10, 2022.
Felice is survived by his lovely wife Elena. Together they built a beautiful home and life for their cherished children Antonio, Maddalena and Umberto and their late beloved son-in-law Eric. Eventually they were thrilled to welcome three amazing grandchildren Erica, Antonio and Ethan.
Predeceased by his parents Antonio and Maddalena as well as his brothers Leo and Nicola (Giovanna). Felice is survived by his sister Luisa (late Giovanni) and leaves behind many nieces and nephews.
As a young man, Felice immigrated from Italy to Canada in hopes of building a better life for himself and his intended bride-to-be Elena and their dream for a family.
Hard work, perseverance and pride of family continued as the theme to realizing what was once a dream to become reality.
Felice was a quiet man and while he may not have verbalized his feelings, you could learn all you needed by looking around to the photos he held dear and his prideful comments to others about his family.
Felice’s favourite days were those enjoying a delicious meal prepared by his lovely wife Elena, while surrounded by his children and grandchildren with his knack for a witty comment thrown in here or there. The cherry on top was watching a soccer match to follow, especially in support of his favourite team Juventus.
We will miss him dearly.
