Image 1
On the sunny morning of Friday, March 1st, at the age of 71, Gavino, after a long fight through a number of illnesses, left this life to move into the care of our Lord. He will be fondly remembered for his hospitality, his playful sense of humour, his ear for the classics and his love of folk dancing. Gavino joins his parents, the late Paolo and Giuseppina Manca, and his twin brother, Antonio, in heaven. In this life he leaves his loving wife, Anna (nee Tersigni), his sons Roberto, Davide (Assunta), and Marco, and his sisters Maria (Gerardo) and Rosalia (late Carlo). His nieces Rita (Lorenzo), Louisa (Agostino), Linda (Christian), Allison (Alex), Lisa (Alex), Antonella (Italo), Cristina (David), and nephews Tony, Gianpaolo (Sima), Michael (Tracey) will miss their Zio Gavino dearly. Visitation to be held 3-5pm and 7-9pm on Wednesday, March 6th at Paul O’Connor Funeral Home, 1939 Lawrence Ave E (between Pharmacy & Warden Ave.). Funeral mass will follow on Thursday, March 7th at St. Lawrence Martyr Catholic Church, 2210 Lawrence Ave E (between Birchmount & Kennedy Rd.) at 11:00am. Interment at Resthaven Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a donation to St. Lawrence Martyr Church or Diabetes Canada.
