  9. My sincere condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of working with Sandro shortly after he had come to Calgary, at Canataro Motors. A man who thoroughly enjoyed his work and life. Any time I ran into him since that that he always had a smile and was genuinly happy to see me, and I expect he was that way to everyone who knew him. He will be missed.

    My deepest wishes for all of your family at this time. I only met Sandro a handful of times when he was servicing my Alfa, but I was struck by his kind way and how honest he was. His time with me and on this earth has been too brief, but I’m sure his impact on all of us will last forever. Godspeed Sandro…..
