He was born on December 26, 1920 in Sorzento, Udine, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1954. He worked for and was sought after by various construction companies as a cement finisher. He had a passion and strong work ethic for doing the best work possible.

Gino was predeceased by his wife Nada in 2001; nieces, Irene Steffes (2010) and Annie Sedola (2011), and nephew Joe Fulla in 2010. Gino is survived by daughter, Anna (Enzo) Reginato; Nonno to Stefano (Jenny) and Carla; Bis-nonno to Natalina; survived by son Danilo in Victoria and Flavio (Lorraine); Grandfather to Michael, Bianca, and Bambi.

With profound appreciation, we thank the caring and loving staff at Travellers Lodge who were so comforting and caring to him during his stay. We also thank Dr. Anthony Lane for his many years of service to our father.
