RESTIVO, Ignazio (Harry) It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Ignazio on Wednesday, January 3, 2018, one day short of his 85th birthday. He is reunited after 36 years with his beloved wife Giuseppina (Infurnari). Loving father to Luigi (Nida), Maria (Tony Pocobene) and Joe. Proud nonno to Matthew, Patrick, Lukas, Phoenix and Zara.

Will be fondly remembered by all his nephews, nieces, relatives and many friends. Ignazio came from humble beginnings in Racalmuto Sicily, Italy. At the young age of 16 (1949) he came to Canada with his parents and all his sisters to build a future together. He returned to Racalmuto in 1960 and married Giuseppina. They returned to Canada and shared 22 loving years together. He devoted the rest of his life to his children and his grandchildren. Ignazio led a simple life with a big loving heart.
