Obituary for Francesco Amato

Francesco Amato
Peacefully in his home on April 18th, Francesco Amato at the age of 81 passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. Francesco was born in Tripoli, Libya, son of the late Paulo and Vincenza Amato. Beloved wife of 56 years to Giuseppina (Ferrara). Loving father of Virginia (Sheldon) Harrington, Paul (Katie) Amato and Cathy (Doug) Cooper. Cherished Nonno to Nicole, Emma, Kristen and Jacob.
Sadly missed by his sisters, Vincenza (Jack) Provenza , Maria (Giuseppe) Cammisa, and Rosa Salamone; and brothers, Benito Amato, Antonio (Antonina) Amato, Pietro (Francesca) Amato and Angelo Amato, his sister- in-laws Liboria Amato and Rosa Amato, and his many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his brothers Benedetto Amato and Salvatore Amato, sister-in-law Gina Amato and brother-in-law Ross Salamone.
In 1966, Francesco moved from Alcamo, Sicily to Canada determined to provide a great life for his family. He worked hard for many years as a bricklayer, owning and managing rental properties and working for Libby’s in both Chatham and Wallaceburg, Ontario. In his retirement years, Francesco found much happiness spending time with his grandchildren and returning back to his roots in Alcamo, Sicily for annual vacations.
Sincere thanks to Dr. Kassirer and Nurse Barb Puddy for their empathy, care and compassion during Francesco’s illness.
