After a courageously fought battle, it is with the heaviest hearts that we announce the passing of our adored husband, father, brother, son, uncle, nonno, brother-in-law, friend, and the greatest family man of all time. Gino Tittarelli, husband of Christine, father to Morgan (Eric), Brandon (Maria), son of the late Carlo and Maria, brother to Joe (Gina), Rose, brother-in-law to John (Vicki), son-in-law to the late Serge and Anne, Nonno to Felix and Cooper, and much-loved uncle to many nieces and nephews. A special thank you to the nurses and PSW's of the LHIN for their care and compassion. Although born in Italy, Gino was a proud Canadian and successfully started Nash Auto Parts where many personal and professional relationships were fostered, and Nash unofficially became the site of the underage driving school for those with the inside connection. He was always the life of the party and kids naturally gravitated towards him. You just had to find the crowd of kids and in the centre, you would find Gino with a handful of kids hanging off him. This translated throughout his life and to this day you would still find him at the center of the young crowd. Gino was much loved by everyone who knew him. He had the most infectious smile and was at his happiest when in his backyard oasis by the pool with his family and friends close by. Our sweet Gino, aka Tad, knew how to take a joke and gave it back just as fast. Although diminutive in size, he always had bragging rights to a great head of hair and a larger-than-life personality. He truly had a zest for life that was contagious. He welcomed everyone into his home and into his heart where so many parties were had, and memories were made. He left us too soon but has made his mark and his memory will stay with us forever. Visitation will be held at SMITH'S FUNERAL HOME, 454 Highway #8 (east of Millen Road) STONEY CREEK (905-664-4222) on Monday, April 26, 2021 from 5:30 - 9 p.m. In accordance with provincial regulations, there is a limit to the number of visitors who may attend at one time. Please RSVP in advance for the Visitation on Gino's tribute page at www.smithsfh.com or by calling the Funeral Home. Visitors are asked to remain in their cars until their scheduled time. A Service of Remembrance and Celebration of Gino's life will be held a later late when it is safe for friends and family to gather. If desired, memorial contributions to ALS Society would be sincerely appreciated by the family.

My condolences on your loss of this great man. I only met Gino a few times buy we hit it off, as we have a lot of good friends in common. But in the few times I met him, his commitment to his family, loyalty to his friends, and his sensible approach on all matters in life were made clear. I will miss this good soul.
