19/07/1945 - 27/04/2018
On April 27th, 2018 at 7:54pm in Sydney, Australia, our precious father was carried up to the heavens by an army of angels.
You took your last breaths with your family all around you, loving you, respecting you, crying for you and telling you how much we adore you.
Loving, fun, full of jokes, hard working, kind, generous, warm hearted, humble and so much more. You would give away your last dollar, the shirt off your back, your last morsel of food. You are a loving father, a loving husband, a loving grandfather, a loving brother, father in-law, uncle, cousin, son and friend. A true gentleman who loved so many, and in return was loved by everyone near and far. So many people were touched by you and your kindness, and will remember you always for the great man that you are.
"A day without laughter is a day wasted".
And you lived this motto every day Papà. Smile after smile after smile. That infectious smile and laugh - a part of you all of us will remember. Taken too soon. You suffered so much. You fought til the end, 'til your last breath. Your strength will never be forgotten.
Be at peace now our Knight, our King, our Champion. You always told us you loved us forever. Papà, we love you too from now 'til Eternity. Thank you for everything that you did for us. We love you so so much.
It is with great pride as your children and on behalf of Mum that we farewell you Papà. Our champion, our protector, our hero. At all costs we wanted to make you better. You fought... We all fought with you!
We love you beyond words. Our hearts are shattered but we find comfort, we all do, in knowing you are finally at peace. You will always be by our side watching over us and guiding us.
Fly now our angel. Fly now Papà.
We all miss you so much already.
All our love Papà,
Mum, Rosaria, Pasquale, your loving grandchildren and all your family and friends
