Dad was a very simple man who most cherished the time spent with family sharing a meal, going on a vacation, and having a few laughs. He especially enjoyed sitting on the front veranda with his neighbour Vincenzo, having an espresso or a glass of wine and solving the world's problems. His other favourite pastimes were sitting under his gazebo, attending to his garden and playing with his best friend Georgie the budgie.
Clelio was a proud retired employee of Ford Motor Company in Oakville where he worked for 34 years.
Thank you to Urologist Dr. Kapoor and to the doctors, nurses and support staff at CTU West at St. Joseph's Hospital and a special thank you to Kim and Bonnie from the Nephrology Unit at the Juravinski Tower. A sincere expression of gratitude to intern doctor Liam Crummey whose encouragement and compassion gave strength to dad in his final days.
