It is with broken hearts that the family announces the passing of Fiorino Rotondi on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, surrounded by his loving and dedicated wife and children at Bluewater Health. Beloved and devoted husband of Pasqua (Conte) for 50 years. Loving and most wonderful father of Aldo (Joan), Emilia (Cecil) Iacobelli, and Maria (Dean) Troiani.  Cherished and precious Nonno of Mia, Bianca, Sofia, Mateo and Giordano. Dear brother of Elisa (the late Pasquale) Lupi and brother-in-law of Gina (the late Frank) Rotondi. Survived by Maria (the late Angelo) Conte and the Conte family in Italy. Predeceased by his infant brother Guido, sister Francesca, and sister Assunta  and her husband Loreto Domenichini. Also survived by several nieces and nephews. Fiorino immigrated to Canada in 1960 in search of a better life. He was a hard worker with Local 1089 until his retirement. Spending time with his grandchildren brought him the greatest joy.  Fiorino enjoyed working in his garden and making his award-winning wine. He loved life and brought joy to all with his warm and loving smile. He was a very spiritual man and was dedicated to his wife, children and grandchildren.
