Remo was born in Chieti Italy and came to Canada as a young man, settling in Guelph. He met Kitty in the early 70’s and they remained together until her passing in 2012. He worked at Owens Corning for many years and still has many friends from there. His love of cooking was legendary, to get invited to a full course Italian dinner was an event many looked forward to. He loved the Blue Jays & Maple Leafs and going downtown to Tony’s to play scopa. Hopefully there’s bingo in heaven with no witch’s sitting on his winning ball. Timi will miss the lunches but is happy he’s now enjoying them with Kitty again.
Special thanks to the Guelph Fire, EMS and Guelph Police offices Nicholas Doner and Sgt. Connelly.
