CAIVANO, Gerardo

With profound sadness, we announce the passing of our dear father and nonno Gerardo on January 15, 2021 at the age of 89. Loving husband for 65 years, he leaves behind his wife Maria. Beloved father of Angela (spouse Dominic), Elena (spouse Carlo) Linda (spouse Matthew), and David. Proud nonno of Laura, Matthew, Steven, Robert, Alexandra, James and Great nonno to Leonardo. Predeceased by his parents, Vito and Angela, sister Rocchina, brothers Mauro and Carmine (Minuce).

He will be sadly missed by his many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Born in Picerno, Italy, and immigrating to Canada in 1956, Gerardo spent his life as a hardworking, dedicated, faithful man.

We will always remember his enthusiasm and love for watching a good soccer game and other sporting events. He very much enjoyed making wine each year and sharing a glass with family and friends. In his final days at home he enjoyed playing cards with his wife Maria.

As the Province of Ontario has moved into a more restricted ‘lockdown’ category during this pandemic, our family has made the difficult decision to hold a private funeral service and burial for our husband and father.

Relatives and friends are welcome to participate online via Zoom on Friday, January 29, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.:

Following the service, Gerardo will be laid to rest at Westminster Cemetery. Due to the limited number of people allowed to be in attendance, only the immediate family members will attend the services in the funeral home and at the cemetery.

In memory of Gerardo, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Dad, I can't believe you are gone, it is still so surreal for all of us. You will be greatly missed, especially your sense of humour and stories. You were a great father and hard working loyal man and husband and I only wish we could have been there for you in the end. I came across this poem that someone sent me and I wanted to share it with you.

For Dad In Heaven

You held my hand when I was small
You caught me when I fell
The hero of my childhood
and of latter years as well.
Every time I think of you
My heart just fills with pride
and though I'll always miss you DAD
I know you're by my side.
In Laughter and in sorrow
In sunshine and in rain.
I know you're watching over me
until we meet again.

Forever in our hearts, love you daddy....xoxo
