FAZARI, Giacomo 'Jack' - A hole has been left in all our hearts by the sudden and untimely passing of Giacomo 'Jack' Fazari, beloved family man and friend to many, on March 29, 2021, at the age of 76.
Jack came from humble beginnings, born in 1944 to Giuseppe and Rachele Fazari in San Giorgio Morgeto, Reggio, Calabria.
He was the youngest of four brothers who remained tight-knit to the end: Pasquale (the late Teresa), Domenico (the late Natalina) and Michele (Pina).
At 12, he immigrated to Canada with his parents and reunited with his brothers in Toronto.
The centre of his life was his wife of 48 wonderful years, Rose, and their children, Rachel (Domenic D'Agostino) and Joseph (Giovanna).
His later years were devoted to being the adored Nonno Jack to four grandsons, Paolo and Giacomo D'Agostino, and Giacomo and Matteo Fazari.
He will also be missed by his sister-in-law Grace (the late Domenic Pileggi).
It is with very heavy hearts that our family has made the difficult decision to hold a private funeral with our immediate family, in honour of our dear husband, father and grandfather, Jack Fazari. Due to the evolving status of COVID-19, we have chosen to do this in order to minimize the threat of spreading the coronavirus.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to either the Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society.
Friends and relatives are welcome to participate in Jack's Funeral Mass virtually on Friday morning at 9:30 a.m., please visit bernardofh.com for details.
A Celebration of Jack's Life will be take place in the future.
