Pasquale was born in Cicciano, Italy. He arrived in Canada at the age of 19, where he became “Pat.” Pat quickly became part of Canadian culture. Became a baker and loved it passionately. He was always quick to help anyone in need and became famous for making long-term friends quickly. Known as the life of the party, he feared nothing and brought joy to everyone. Anyone who interfaced with Pat knew he loved life to the fullest. Although the family is heartbroken, Pat left them with incredible strength and memories of a man who lived life for the family; whether playing and poking fun with his grandchildren, to breakfast dates to ensuring he was always available to help family, friends and strangers. Pat loved to cook and was often asked by his family members for meatballs, eggplant parmesan, and “sammiches!”
Pat will be remembered by his long-time friends Carol Roberts, Harish (Sharon), Brahbhatt, Mario (Lorea) Eufemia, Robert (Cammie) Mackay, Rob (Donna) Mignon, Ray Zatylny, Patricia (Cecil) Griffin, Stan (Kristy) Chorney, and many many more….
