CERATO, Sergio Francesco

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.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 8:00 p.m.

    Up to now we could not believe it. We still saw him Thursday (June 14, 2012)at our office talking to Sang. I will not forget him. He is now with our Lord; he has done his mission here on earth; he is in a place where there is no more pain nor tears.
    The Lord be with you and your children at this time.
    The pain does not go away; we just get used to it.

    Sergio always impressed me as a humble man that did not need to impress anyone with the keen intellect that placed his skills at the top of his field. His quiet confidence said it all; and , . Whether it was just hello, or he stopped for 15 minutes he made you feel that he had dropped everything, and for that brief moment in time; it was just you and him sitting on a park bench having a chat, with sincere interest in what you had to say.
    My very favorite thought of homage for the deceased ; Sergio’s spirit now soars with the eagles; let our hearts soar with him.
    May God Bless you all!
    Respectfully
    Enzo Di Palma

  16. Dad,

    I’m still in shock over your passing. Theres still so many things i wanted to talk to you about. It just seems unfair and too early for you to leave us. I know you are resting peacefully now and our hearts are with you. My wife Kasia & your grandaughter Victoria wished they could have spent more time with you. Thanks for always doing your best & teaching me how to live the goodlife you never could. I will always cherish the memories that we had together! God bless you.
