ELIO PAPI March 4, 1922 - July 2, 2014 God called our dad Elio on July 2, 2014. He will be reunited in heaven with his loving wife, our mother, Norina. Elio will be cherished by his children Franca (Alan), Mariarina (Doug) and Ave (Rob). He will always be the proud grandfather of Kirk, Troy (Thomas), Andrea (Ryan), Chris (Kim), Daniel (Cassandra). Great- grandfather to Nathan, Owen and Colemin. Elio made Canada his home in 1951 after serving in WWII. We shall never forget his devotion and love to his family. He worked hard all his life, but his dream job started as a caretaker for the TCDSB for which he often shared many fond memories. He was an avid gardener, supplying everyone with his prized tomatoes and vegetables.
