Sergio was a joyful person who loved laughing, telling jokes and a good story. He enjoyed spending time with people, especially his grandchildren and his great grandson.
Sergio was a hairdresser by trade through which he made lasting friendships in a career that spanned 50 years.
When he wasn’t at his hair salon, Sergio could be found with friends and family playing bocce, skiing and golfing, or in his garden with his wife, Adriana, tending their vegetables and flowers.
He was devoted to his faith and his church where he enjoyed volunteering. He was also a member of St. Padre Pio Knights of Columbus.
Sergio will be dearly missed by all of those he met throughout his life, but especially his family and many friends in both Canada and Italy.
A special thank you to Brampton Civic Hospital’s Oncology Unit doctors and nurses for their exceptional care and compassion.
