QUATTROCIOCCHI, Umberto - (12 September, 1940 – 14 April, 2019)
Passed away on April 14, 2019.
He builds from local rocks that come to hand craggy, irregular, or water-worn and guided by a form he has in mind but nothing like a plan, nothing so stern. Colours and sizes join haphazardly except for some that draw themselves together; some likely stones he has to throw away, a few so small they are not worth the bother. And gradually the thing materializes, assumes the shape he'd say he worked to build although the details harbor some surprises and there are places where he'd say he failed. A century form now all will be changed except the pile of rocks the he arranged.

Funeral Mass at St. Paschal Baylon Church, 92 Steeles Ave. W., Thornhill on April 17th at 9:30 a.m. Entombment to follow at Holy Cross Catholic cemetery, Thornhill
