After a long and courageous journey over the past eighteen years, Romeo passed away peacefully surrounded by his caring family at Toronto General Hospital.
He is survived by his devoted and loving wife Marialisa of 25 years, his loving daughter Natalie and cherished sons Justyn and Giordano. He is survived by his adoring parents Angelo and Lorenza De Gasperis.
He will be sadly missed by his brother Tony and fiancée Janet, his late brother Frankie (the late Rosa) with niece Laura (Mike) with great-nephew Giuseppe and nephew Frankie Jr., his twin sister Julie and brother-in-law Claudio with nieces Jessica and Valerie and nephews Marco and Angelo, his sister Nancy and brother-in-law Peter with niece Nicole, his mother-in-law Silvana (the late Giovanni), sister-in-law Enza (Fabien) with nephew Éli and niece Léa, brother-in-law Giancarmen (Daniella) with nephew Gio and niece Ariella, his many aunts, uncles and cousins, and several very special friends.
Romeo leaves a legacy of profound kindness, generosity, a great admiration and unwavering devotion to his beautiful family, his parents and loving support to his extended family and simply anyone that he touched.
Romeo will always be remembered in the community as an honourable man with such strength and determination in everything that he did and an incredible aptitude for business; all while holding true to his humble self and charismatic personality.
