Donato FiorellaDONATO, 'Dan' Fiorella - (August 22, 1951 -  May 15, 2020)

Age 68, of Scarborough, Dan passed away peacefully from cancer at his residence on Friday, May15th, 2020, surrounded by his loving family.

Dan was born August 22nd, 1951 - the son of Giuseppe and Carmela Fiorella in Montorio nei Frentani, Campobasso, Italy.

Loving husband of Teresa. Cherished father of Daniel and David.

Dan will be dearly missed by his two brothers Nicola (Nick) and Costanzo (Chris), the Fiorella and Labriola families, friends and colleagues.

Dan came to Canada at the age of 6. He worked very hard to become an educator and taught at St. John Henry Newman Catholic High School (formerly Cardinal Newman) for 32 years. He inspired many teachers and students with his personality, charisma, humour, teaching style and love of sport.

While at Newman, Dan was the physical education department head. He coached many sports such as basketball, wrestling and badminton. As the athletic director, Dan managed the athletic banquet, where each year students were recognized for their excellence in both sport and academics.

He will be fondly remembered as a volunteer contributing to athletic programs for youth in his community. His legacy as an educator will live on through his family and students.

Due to COVID-19, there will not be a scheduled mass or visitation.

The interment will take place at THORNTON CEMETERY and  FUNERAL CENTRE, 1200 Thornton Road North, Oshawa, (South of Taunton Road and off of Dryden Blvd, 905-579-6787).

In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully accepted for Green Thumbs Growing Kids (https://greenthumbsto.org/).
