It is with deep sorrow and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Adamo Ricciardi. Surrounded by his loving family, Adamo passed away peacefully on March 31, 2021. Adamo was a beloved husband to his wife Giulia (predeceased, 2015). He was a devoted father to Michele (predeceased, 2020), Maria (Carmine Paolercio), Mirella (Frank Tauro), Josie, and Lily (Fernando Santos). Proud grandfather of Cathy (John), Matthew (Andrina), Adam (Michelle), and Paulo. More recently, Adamo became a beloved great-grandfather to Thomas.

Adamo was born on October 11, 1934 in Rende, Calabria, Italy to Michele and Maria Ricciardi. He married the love of his life, Giulia, on September 28, 1957. Throughout their life together they created a beautiful family who will continue to carry on their legacy with pride. Adamo will be lovingly remembered by all of those he cherished dearly, including his many brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and extended family in Canada and Italy.

Adamo was known for his charming smile, generous heart, love of family and pure joy for life. His bravery, strength and determination were truly inspirational to us all and we will never forget the unwavering optimism he carried with him throughout his life.

We will always love and cherish you in our hearts, forever. Rest in eternal peace.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the Canadian Cancer Society.

Due to current covid-19 pandemic restrictions, our family has decided to have a private viewing and funeral service.

A private entombment will follow at Westminster Cemetery.

To see Sio Adamo passing away breaks my heart. I grew up with Sio Adamo and to not be a the ceremony breaks my heart. I will never forget when Sio Adamo and Mike came to Wrestling events with my dad and It was such a great memory. Now that all three are gone is absolutely heartbreaking. I write this message with a heavy heart and tears in my eye.
Please forgive me for not being there. Love always Pietro Salituo and family.
