I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know Luigi was your best friend and your soul mate.
Dear Sergina, we have just learned of the passing of Luigi, and we are all saddened by it. during the short time that we met and knew him we realized right away that he was a gentle and special soul. We will miss him on this country road where he brought so much beauty. we wish that we could have been there for you but unfortunately found out just one hour ago. Jasen is sitting quietly and reflecting on the fun time he had with Luigi at your place. he said "I will miss him a lot, I learned a lot from Luigi and liked him so much, he was fun and easy going, i will always remember him, he gave me my first job."
May the Angels guide his steps to heaven

Luigi Gambin - A Furlan Icon
We were all so very blessed to have had such an amazing mentor and leader in the Furlan Community. May all his efforts continue on to keep his memory alive.
Sergina and family, you will have such an incredible angel watching over you with his beautiful smile.
Dear Sergina, Lawrence, & Leonard,
What a shock, could not believe the news my mother informed us. She had just spoken to Gigi the week before and told us he was doing fine. Our condulence to your family. We remember Gigi as a strong leader in all of his endevors. A good heart with a sympathic ear to all. We were fortunate to go on one of his fabulous trips to Italy.

We the Liut Family would like to express our sincere condolances to all the Gambin family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time.
Gigi your beautiful smile will never be forgotten.
Sia a nome mio personale o come Presidente della Federazione mi è impossibile esprimere tutto lo scoramento che provo per questa perdita... Per me, Gigi era un vero amico, onesto e sincero a cui mi potevo sempre rivolgere per un saggio consiglio. Credo, e ne sono convinto, che Gigi era e rimarrà per tutti noi un pilastro della Friulanità sia a Toronto che nel resto del Canada. Certo è, che con la sua scomparsa la Federazione dei Fogolars del Canada ha perduto un amico, un assiduo collaboratore e sostenitore fedele.
Siamo profondamente addolorati per questa scomparsa indimenticabile. A Sergina e la famiglia Gambin porgiamo le nostre più sentite condoglianze augurandoci che trovino il coraggio per affrontare questo dolore.

Dear Sergina and family,
We are thinking of you at this difficult time. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy.
We want to share this message with you:
“God saw him getting tired and his cure was not to be, so he put his arms around him and whispered come with me..With tearful eyes we watched him and saw him pass away, although we loved him dearly we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating hard, working hands at rest..God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best!”
Luigi will truly be missed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Gambin family during this time.

Lu was a pillar supporting quality of life in York Region and that included Opera York. His sound advice, humour and warmth made it a joy to be with him. I felt a kinship in all things in the arts and that included music and the culinary arts.
Everyone in the Opera York Board feels the loss but recognize we need to celebrate his life and honour him in ways that we are able.

To godmother Sergina,
I will never forget that my godfather Gigi and you went above and beyond for me. I will always remember and appreciate your help and generosity. Always in my heart Barbe Gigi.
Dear Sergina and family, we are all thinking of you at this difficult time. We will always carry fond memories of Luigi. Caring for him was an effortless pleasure. Thoughts and prayers from us all.
Your nurses from Humber River Regional Hospital's Oncology Clinic
What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why Luigi left this earth so soon, or why he left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that he died, but that Luigi lived. And that his life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
I count myself fortunate to have known Luigi and I was truly inspired by his leadership and words of wisdom.
Please accept our heartfelt sympathy. He will truly be missed.
In God We Trust.
It would be grossly arrogant and ignorant of me to think that all I have accomplished in my construction career was my own doing. For if Luigi taught me anything it is that nothing is ever accomplished by one person alone. I just wanted to let you know how much I value what Luigi taught me, and that the humility, respect, wisdom, and encouragement are all an enormous contribution and helped to make my accomplishments possible.
I will be forever grateful
Sergina and family our deepest sympathies for your loss; the world truly lost a very special person. Gigi was kind and caring and left a lasting impression on every person he touched. May the sun continue to shine in your world always.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
Dearest Sergina - our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most devastating time in your life. Gigi will be sorely missed.

Luigi was a kind, caring gentleman and I know he has left a huge hole in not only in your lives but all the people he has touched. May all the wonderful memories you have of him give you some comfort during this most difficult time.
Rest in peace caro Gigi
Sergina and family,
My heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Gigi left a lasting impression on very many and will never be forgotten.
I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Mr. Gambin on the Pier 21 project and found him to be a man of joy and wit, principle and hard work. He made everyone feel like we were all part of his family. His beautiful smile always lit up the room. What a profound loss. My thoughts and prayers are with his lovely wife, Sergina and family.- Rita DeMontis
News of your passing was a shock.

Dearest Sergina and family - It's hard to find the right words to say at this most difficult time. Gigi was a wonderful man with so many great qualities and will be missed by so many people. I'll never forget the trips with you and him,,,, so much fun and lots of great memories. He was always there for so many of us. Would open his heart/home to anyone that was in need. The Famee Furlane has lost a great president. My deepest sympathies and condolences to you and your family. He will be deeply missed by all of us. Love, Mara Mian
Our heartfelt sympathies to Sergina, Leonard, Lawrence and family. We feel blessed and thankful to have known Barbe Gigi.
I have worked for Luigi these last 5 years. It was an honor to know him. He was the kindest and fairest of men, no matter who you were, what position you held in life he always would stop and listen. He always told me that everybody mattered and derserved to be treated with respect. I will miss seeing his smiling face everyday, the times we chatted in his office about what to cook next (he gave me some wonderful recipes and everytime I prepare them I will be thinking of him). I loved to hear the tales of his childhood in Italy, chasing girls, his first job, etc. His office stands empty now as so does a part of my heart. My deepest sympathies to you Sergina, you are in our hearts and prayers. xo

Sergina and family,

Our Sincerest condolences. Gigi holds a special place in the Trevisan family. Our dad and mom (Giuliano e Rina) were always greatful for the 'gift' of Gigi.

I know understand why my mom was so fond of MrGambin (she went to the Famee Furlane to play bingo and went on a trip years ago). A truly wonderful and full of life person, he will be surely missed. I hope you will find comfort in knowing that he is in peace, no longer suffering e nella luce eterna con nostro Signore. Riposa in Pace and my mom will look for him I am sure! Sincere condoglianze a tutti i famigliari.
