RADICE, Sebastiano 'Sam' - It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Sebastiano. He left us quietly, but left us treasured memories we are proud to own. Passed away at the Greater Niagara General Hospital on Sunday September 4, 2016 in his 89th year.
Beloved husband of Antonietta of 55 years. Loving father of Mary (Lorenzo) Leone, Josephine (Peter) Malong and Sammy Radice. Cherished grandfather and proud nonno to Juliano, Lucas, Quinton, Monet, Samantha, Veronica and Madeleine.
Survived by two of his adored brothers Giuseppe (Carmela) and Pietro (Vincenza), his sister-in-law Lucia, and fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends. Predeceased by his parents Maria and Giuseppe Radice, and his brothers Vincenzo, Donato, Guigliermo, Michele and Vito.
Sebastiano came to Canada in 1951 from San Fele, Italy, later returned and met his wife, the love of his life, and started his married and family life in Canada. Sebastiano retired from GM after 30 years of service and was a lifetime member of Club Italia.
He was an amazing man, one of a kind, with a heart of gold, dedicating a lifetime of hard work to see that his wife and family were well taken care of. His pride and joy was his garden, most notably his delicious tomatoes. He was happiest when he was in the presence of his 7 grandchildren.
Friends are invited to call at the Patterson funeral home, Niagara Falls for visiting Wednesday 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 pm.
A Funeral Mass will be celebrated Thursday at 10 am at St. Patrick's Church. The Rite of Entombment will follow.
In memory of Mr. Radice, contributions may be made to Tender Wishes or Project Share, and would be appreciated by his family.
