March 7, 1968 – February 10, 2017
It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our dearly beloved husband, father, son, and brother, Johnny Gazzola, at the young age of 48.
After graduating from Confederation College, Johnny worked for Shaw Cable, and he remained there for 25 years.
He loved the times he spent camping with his family, gardening, cooking, hunting and fishing with the East End Adventure Team and his son. He also loved carrying on family traditions taught by his mom and teaching them to his children. His sense of humour and welcoming spirit made him a best friend to everyone he encountered, but he had a special bond to his siblings, Tony and Mary Lou
An incredible father and husband, Johnny cherished every moment with his wife and children, and their two dogs, Roxy and Molly, who will also miss his playful spirit and loving touch.
Johnny will always be remembered by his family: wife Melanie (nee: Johnson), daughter Kaitlyn, son Jordan; mother Lena; brother Tony (Maria), Jacob, Patric; sister Mary Lou Roberts (Stewart) Kevin, Kayla and Kody. He will also be missed by his mother- and father-in-law Pauline and Joe Johnson, brother-in-law Shaun, his cousins, and numerous other relatives and dear friends.
He had overcome the passing of his own father, Giacomo, at the early age of 38. Much too soon, he now joins his father, grandparents, and numerous aunts and uncles.
Funeral service for Mr. Gazzola will be held on Friday, February 17, 2017 leaving Harbourview Funeral Centre at 10:00 a.m. to St. Anthony’s Church, 123 Hilldale Road, for the Funeral Mass to be celebrated by Rev. Luigi Filipino beginning at 10:30 a.m.
Visitation will be held on Thursday evening February 16th from 6 p.m until 8 p.m. in the Chapel of Harbourview Funeral Centre, 499 North Cumberland Street, where prayers will begin at 7:00 p.m.
