Obituary for Costantino "Tino" Di Vitantonio
Di Vitantonio, Costantino "Tino"
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved brother and uncle, Constantino Di Vitantonio ”Tino”, who passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Sunday September 10, 2017. Tino was 51 years of age. He is now resting happily in his parents' loving arms, Giulio and Dea Di Vitantonio. He will be deeply missed by his sisters, Giuliana (Ugo Giammarco), Marisa (Joe KIepin), and Mirella. Zio Tino will also be missed by his nieces and nephews, Alicia, Sarah, Joey, and Gianluca. He will be fondly remembered by his aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends. Tino was a generous and compassionate man. He always put the needs of others before his own. Thank you Tino for teaching us how to give, even if it means going without so that someone else can have. Despite Tino’s tough exterior, with his quick wit, unexpected sense of humour and genuine character, he effortlessly won the hearts of all those who knew him. Tino had a passion for construction, fine wine, and authentic Italian food. He lived for the moment and always walked to the beat of his own drum. To truly know Tino is to love him. Special thanks to all the members of the A.C.T team, especially Marty, for the love and support they gave to Tino and our family throughout the years, also to the staff at St. Peter’s hospital for their attentive and compassionate care, and to Sandy for bringing her positive energy during Tino’s last days.
