With broken hearts we say goodbye to Davide, who left us very suddenly and unexpectedly in the early hours of March 30, 2020.

Davide shone his light and touched the souls of everyone he knew. He was a devoted son, a loyal friend, and a genuine altruist. He loved everything about Toronto, including the Maple Leafs and he was very proud of his Italian heritage.

Family was of the utmost importance to Davide and his bond with his mother, Romana, is of the purest form of love. They had a unique synergy that will never be lost and we take comfort in knowing he is reunited with his father Elio in heaven.

Due to the current global pandemic, the family has held a private service on Friday, April 17, 2020. Plans for a public memorial will be made in the future.

May we all pray for strength as we wait to be together again.

Joshua 1:9
Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Dear Romana, We were graduate students when you were pregnant with Davide and I remember the complete joy with which you waited for his birth. Years later, Davide and I became colleagues at the University, he as a TA for one of my courses. That early joy that you welcomed him with with had remained with him through childhood to manhood in his kindness, gentleness, and radiant smile. He seemed to find goodness and positivity in everything. I felt privileged to work with him. I cannot imagine your sorrow and I have no words to make it disappear. But know that Davide will remain in the wonderful memories so many people have of him. In heartfelt sympathy, Anne Urbancic

I knew Davide from UofT. We were both in the Italian Studies' PhD program. Though I did not know him well, I can confirm that he was always a pleasant person to be around. I particularly remember his wit, gentleness, and passion for his work. I am truly saddened by this news and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his loved ones. May he rest in peace and may his family and loved ones find strength, love, and hope in this incredibly difficult moment. xx

I went to U of T with Davide and was always so delighted whenever we would cross paths. There were times where in a sea of elder academics, he was the only face I knew, and his gentle presence, kindness, and good humour always made me and others feel at ease. He was real and honest about challenges he faced but had a great sense of humour about everything. His spirit will be missed; the world has lost a very special person. My condolences to those who were close to him and who are suffering this loss at an already difficult time. I wish you peace, strength, and joy in Davide's memory.

Ill always cherish my time with David in Grade school. I even gave him his nickname "Dukes". He was a gentle giant. Live Forever Dukes. Thanks for carrying us to an A in our science project on Planets and our laughs with Mikey over Signora Roach. My condolences to the family.
