Di Rollo, Joseph
On June 9th, unexpectedly, Joseph left us with heavy hearts. A loving husband to his adoring wife Frances of 44 years, oldest and caring brother of Anthony (Toni) and John (Karen) who were there for him every step of the way, Anna (1987), Gabriel (1982) and dearest son of Saverio (2012) and Celeste (2012). He will be dearly missed by his nieces and nephews Adriana (Domenic), Vanessa (Hugo), Gabriel and Marcus and sister-in-law Rita. Joseph leaves behind an immensely close knit family of aunts and uncles and cousins.
Joe will always be remembered lovingly for his kind, generous and affectionate nature and quirky sense of humour. He loved kids and kids loved him. He was a hockey house league inner city coach for teenagers in his younger years. Sunday morning hockey in Orangeville with the Rusty Blades where he formed life long friendships was one of the happiest times. Joe had so many interests but fishing, above all, was in his DNA.
A huge thank you to all his friends and especially Gerry for his countless visits with Joe and for the many phone calls to share their Maple Leaf game predictions for the night.
Rest In Peace my love.
