It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father, grandfather, and great grandfather, Gino Tosello, on April 30th, 2023. Gino was a loving father to his three children, Diana (Manuel), Victor (Sherry), and Luana (Sergio). He was an adoring grandfather to his five grandchildren, Angela (Domenic), Cassandra (Andrea), Jason (Ivy), Stefano, Julian and April (Connor). Gino was also a fun-loving great grandfather to Gabriel and Sebastian. Brother of Elena, Tony (deceased) and Cesare (deceased). Brother-in-law of Dolores, Gianna and Colombo (deceased). Gino was born in Musano, Veneto, Italy on October 4th, 1930 and later immigrated to Canada in 1954. He was in search of a better life for himself and his family. He worked tirelessly as a Tile and Terrazzo setter to provide for his family, often working long hours and sacrificing his own needs to ensure that his children had every opportunity to succeed.
Despite the challenges that came with being an immigrant in a new country, Gino was determined to create a better future for his family. He instilled in his children the value of hard work, perseverance, and the importance of education. He encouraged them to follow their dreams and provided unwavering support throughout their lives. Gino enjoyed talking about nature and its ecosystems and all it provided. He was mesmerized by the heavens above, often found gazing at the planets and its infinite stars. One of Gino’s great loves was the opera. He was often found listening to the likes of Maria Callas and Luciano Pavarotti in his most favorite armchair. Gino will be remembered for his kindness, compassionate nature and his remarkable work ethic.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Alzheimer Society of Toronto or Princess Margaret Cancer Center in memory of Gino Tosello.
