Giovanni Canale
Nonno, your love was quiet, but it was strong, steady and constant.

You grounded all of us and made us want to make you proud, without even trying. Along with Nonna, you were the beating heart of our family and the foundation of our lives.

Your garden was a symbol of our family – always taken care of, always loved, and always growing.

We will miss the way you laughed as you watched our silly family shenanigans happening in front of you with sweetness in your eyes.

We will miss your wise and calm words,

Your black car in the driveway,

Your red sweaters,

Your homemade v-neck gardening tops,

Your running shoes (which you loved buying),

Your movie star hair and handsome dark skin,

Your wallet with ALL of our school pictures in it – some still from the 90s.

You were larger than life for us, and somehow, we thought you would live forever.

Now, it’s up to us to take everything you gave us and pass it down to our ever-growing family.

Your values will live with us forever:

-Family first



-Love of Life & Living






-Hard work


You will live on forever, through us.

We love you, Nonno.

Your grandchildren:








Along with Mimma, Marco, Sophie and Anthony.

And great-grandchildren:

Growing up I was lucky enough to share many special memories with the Canale family. We were not related by blood but friends are the families we choose and we were blessed to have Giovanni, Lina, Mimi, Francie and Mario in our lives. There were countless days spent together eating, laughing and enjoying life and at the centre of them all I remember Giovanni. He was a great man with a big heart! He always greeted you with a smile, even his eyes lit up and smiled too and his laughter was infectious. I just think about it, and I have to smile. Every Christmas, Easter, birthday, Sundays at the beach and every Saturday Hockey Night in Canada spent together I hold dear to my heart. I can still see Giovanni cheering on his team and laughing with his friends. He loved his family and he loved a good time. He was a great friend to my parents and now he will be reunited with them in heaven. May he rest in peace in his eternal home and may the seeds that he planted continue to grow in the hearts of his family as he watches over them. My sincerest and heartfelt condolences to the entire Canale family. Sara Grillo-Adragna

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Giovanni. He and his family were a big part of my family when my sister and I were growing up, great friend to my parents! We fondly remember , the late night or should I say overnight card games and waking up with the sun to go home. The regular Sunday "parties" at the beach, where we laughed , played and ate like Kings. A true gentleman with a kind smile. I am certain my dad and mom are happy to reunite with you in Heaven...where there is no pain only joy and lots of laughs!
My sincerest Condolences Lina, Mimi, Francie and Mario and families.
