Tony Ammirati, beloved husband of Lina Ammirati of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, August 1, 2013 at the age of 80 years.
Tony is survived by his lovely wife Lina; sons, Frank and Joe; daughter Isabel; son-in-law Robert Toole; grandchildren, Michael and Justin; brothers, Giovanni and Salvatore from Calgary; and sister Marietta from Italy, and their families. Tony was predeceased by brothers, Luigi, Vincenzo, and Saverio; and sister Rosina.
Tony loved nothing better than to be in the great outdoors. He loved to hunt, fish, and spend countless hours tending his beautiful vegetable garden. Enjoying family lunches at the table together every Sunday for decades is what we will miss dearly. He lived life fiercely, working hard, and helping everyone that he could. We love you and miss you beyond words.
