It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Tersilio Mosca, on November 22, 2012 in Montreal, Quebec. He was born in the Umbrian hills of Petazzano, Gubbio, Italy, the son of the late Firminio Mosca and late Ida Tognoloni. He leaves behind the love of his life, his spouse of 66 years, Italia Fagiani, and treasured children: Luciana (Attilio Iaboni), Lea (Federico Gaggioli), Marida (Willy Kutteh) and Frank (Laura Marussi). He will be missed by his adoring grandchildren: Nadia (Mike), Dalia, Sabina (Jim), Gianni (Sheila), Adrian, Stefanie, Erika and his great-grandchildren: Charles, Samuel, Kessia, Alex and Kayla. Survived by his loving siblings: Evelino, Gustavo, Annunziata, Mario, Lina, their living spouses, as well as, relatives in Canada, Italy and the USA.
A generous, gentle, humble man who stood for justice, respect and truth; who worked relentlessly, lived modestly and loved passionately. Rest in peace, Babbo. Ci mancherai a crepacuore. We will take care of Mamma and continue to live by your words, "Be kind to others; it costs nothing to be kind".
