It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Francesco on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at St Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton.

Adored husband of Angela (nee Lalama) for more than 50 years. Cherished father and father-in-law of Domenico (Beatrice), John (Kimberley) and Anna (Angelo) Chiodo. Much loved Nonno of Michael, Mark, Cassandra, Nicholas, Matthew and Christian.

Dearest brother and brother-in-law of Adriano (Nanda) Giangregorio, (late Edio) Romana Giangregorio, Roberto (Linda) Giangregorio, (late Edilio) Evelyn Giangregorio. Marco (Mary) Lalama, (late Tony) Anna Lalama, Elisa (late Augusto) Buccitelli, the late Joseph Lalama and Anna Maria (Frank) Trivieri. Francesco will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Francesco served as a policeman in Italy for 4 years and worked for more than 30 years at Stelco. He was a past member of the Abbruzzo Club and Pacentro Club.

His greatest passion was spending time in the garden, taking in a soccer game or a few rounds of boxing but most of all loved spending time with his family and doting on his grandchildren.

Special thanks to Dr. Gangji and RN Laurie and the staff at St. Joseph's Hospital for their care and compassion.

Funeral Mass will be offered at St. Francis Xavier Parish in Stoney Creek on Saturday, July 6th at 10:00 a.m. Entombment to follow.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Kidney Foundation or Diabetes Association would be appreciated by the family.
