Obituary of Leonardo Mastronardi

MASTRONARDI, Leonardo 

It is with our deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother and uncle.  Leonardo Mastronardi,  91 years, born in Villa Canale, Italy, passed away on Sunday, December 26, 2021 at Erie Shores Hospice with his family by his side.  Loving husband of 71 years to Lina Mastronardi.  Devoted father to Mary Brunato (Peter), Lily Mastronardi and Sandy Travaux.  Truly amazing Nonno to Megan (Greg), Zachary (Sarah), Mackenzie (Nick), Joshua, Austin (Julia) and Jordan.  Bis Nonno to Silas, Olive, Otto, Greta, Cora and Leo.  Cherished brother to Mike Mastronardi (Anna).  Predeceased by his parents, Vincenzo and Christina Mastronardi, and his sister, Michelina Ingratta (Nick). 

Nonno Leonard could grow anything, whether it be in his garden or greenhouses.  His life was punctuated by coffee time; between café macchiatos, he cranked the sausage machine, played endless hours of Scopa and wintered in Florida.  His bottomless cookie drawer will continue. 

Our most sincere thank you to Dr. Chowdhry, Dr. Providence, Dr. Burgess, Erie Shores Hospice, CCAC, Paramed, VON and the entire Chartwell staff for the superb care and compassion shown to Papa.  You have our deepest appreciation.  You are all heroes. 

A Private Family Funeral will be held.  In lieu of flowers, donations to Erie Shores Hospice (Hospice Erie Shores Campus) are welcomed.  Friends may send condolences or make a charitable contribution online at www.reidfuneralhome.ca
