May 7, 1950 – June 15, 2012
Serge always said that the measure of a man is his loyalty to his family and his work ethics. Our beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and dear friend passed away suddenly in his home on June 15th, 2012 at the age of 62.
Sergio loved his family and all kinds of technology and always kept up with the latest gadgets. He so loved his weekend road trips to wherever he and Lucy felt like going, and the photos he took of wildlife and scenery were such a joy to them. He really loved riding his motorbike whenever he could but he would always pass up a cruise with his buddies if Lucy wanted to do a day trip. He enjoyed playing rock, paper, scissors with Nadia even though she beat him most of the time. He was so proud that his son Frank followed in his career choice of being a electrician and always said what a great job he did, and that’s because he was taught by the best.
Sergio spent his life devoted to his family and to his work. He is loved and survived by his wife Lucy, sons Frank and Janush, daughter Nadia; his mother Giuseppina Angaran of Italy, siblings Giovanna (Aldo) of Calgary, Luigi of Airdrie, and Maria (Fermino) of Italy; his Zio Nanni and Zia Natalina of Ontario, as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins in Canada and Italy, and one granddaughter.
He was predeceased by his father Francesco Cerato in 1990.
Sergio was and is still loved and will be incredibly missed by everyone who knew him, and will always be in our hearts.
The family would also like to thank everyone for the incredible outpouring of love and support. May God bless him and keep him safe always.
