Obituary for Louis Rizzuto

Louis Rizzuto
Rizzuto, Luigi “Louis”
1927 – 2018
His life was well lived, and he was well loved!! The Lord called him home in a peaceful manner at the Carpenter Hospice, with his family by his side, on Tuesday, July 10th, 2018, in his 92nd year. This gentle, loving, caring, wonderful man has left a permanent mark etched on our hearts and will be supremely missed by his wife and best friend of 67 years, Gertrude (Bessette), his children; Bob (Marie), Alan (Carla), Michael (Gail), and Louise (Mario).
Family was the pivotal essence of Louis’ life. He was proud and honoured to be the patriarch, father, grandfather and great grandfather to our large family. He has been a major presence in the lives of his children and grandchildren. He is a proud grandfather to Bryan (Christy), Laura, Jayke, Cassandra (Scott), Karyn (Mike), Carly, Kate (Mike), Emily (Mike), Scott, Brooke (Luca), Brett (Rachel), Brittney, Andrew, Sarah, and Olivia. He cherished his role of great grandfather to Nicholas, Anthony, Lilianna, Montana, Chelsea, Ava, and James.
Born in Italy, immigrating to Canada in 1938, Louis spent his life as a hardworking, dedicated, faithful, loving man. He had a long-standing relationship with God and was very blessed with his faith to his dying breath. He was predeceased by his parents Rafael and Filomena, his brother Maurice, brothers-in-law Mario, Richard and sisters in law; Rosetta, Rena, Claudette and Rayjeanne. He is survived by his loving brother Eddie, brothers-in-law Larry and Danny, sisters-in-law Monique, Michele, and Jacqueline. He will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
The family would like to thank all the health care professionals from the LHIN/CCAC for their great care in the last couple of months of his life and are sincerely grateful to the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Carpenter Hospice who comforted and cared for him in his last days.
Louis will be forever remembered for his beautiful smile, gentle eyes, caring heart, loving embrace, and unconditional love. Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate his life and find comfort knowing he is in heaven watching over us.
All are welcome for visitation to take place at Smith’s Funeral Home, 1167 Guelph Line, Burlington, on Friday, July 13th from 2 – 4 and 7 – 9pm. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, 2265 Headon Road, Burlington, on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at 10a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer donations to the Carpenter Hospice in Burlington, Ontario.
