Condolence From: Matt Ward
Condolence: Dear Roberto, Franco and Corinna: I was saddened to hear of the Big E's passing. I always enjoyed his company and friendship. My daughters will miss the "what the devil's" and upward eye rolls when he heard something he didn't agree with. He was a gentleman and a scholar and will be missed.

Condolence: Robert , Corrina & Franco and Family , I am so sorry to hear about your Dad !
Although a few years have passed since I have seen him , he emailed me often and I think about him always, he would say , " it's your favorite boss " he was for sure ! I learnt so much from him , even the Italian language! My heart breaks , however there is always comfort knowing there is another angel in the sky watching over his loved ones..
Rest in peace my favorite boss

Condolence: My sincere condolences go out to all the families on the passing of Egidio...he was part of Sudbury's early Italian community and worked hard on their behalf and thus had contact with my Uncle Carmen and Auntie Lilianne. He was very helpful when I bought his travel agency and always loved to drop by and visit the girls in the office....

Condolence: I was so very sad to read of Egidio's passing. What a wonderful and generous man he was. I am thankful that he had a tender heart and was like an adopted Nonno to my children when we were on Wembley Drive. I miss the conversations we had during those years, the good advice and most of all Egidio's kindness to us. My most sincere condolences along with prayers go out to the family extended. May you Cherish the memories. Heaven has gained a wonderful gentleman amongst the angels.

Condolence: Corinna, Robert and Franco,
My sincere condolences to you and your families on the passing of Egidio. Not only was he a "paesano" of my parents, but a connection to their roots in the town of Soveria Mannelli, in fact, my dad was sponsored by Egidio's parents. I will always remember your dad as the "go to" person for the Italian immigrant community in Sudbury especially when it came to filling out forms or documents. I am certain he leaves you all with a strong work ethic and memories to share with your families.

Condolence: Though not in recent contact, I have fond memories of visiting your parents and your grandparents as a young child. Growing up, I saw first hand the help your father provided the Italians in Sudbury through his role as Vice Consul. Heartfelt condolences to the family ...
