Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Elio in his 91st year. He died peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at the Milton District Hospital. He leaves behind his loving wife of 60 years, Vetulia, and will be sadly missed by his children, Grace (Dan Williams), Robert (Ivana), and Lisa (George Brown), his sister Rina (Isidoro Candiotto), brother Duilio (Rachele), Ettore (Assunta), and Iole (Giuseppe Gregato). Elio arrived in Canada in 1951. When he moved to Milton in the late 50’s he opened up his own shoe repair business, a trade he apprenticed for while growing up in Italy. In 1975 he decided to expand and started Elio’s Quality Footwear. Between the two businesses Elio was a respected Main Street merchant for over 35 years. After retirement his artistic spirit emerged. He dabbled in oil painting then transitioned to woodcarving and really enjoyed his time at the senior’s activity center. He spent countless hours tending his vegetable garden, propagating roses and tending his award-winning grafted pear tree. He was a compassionate and kind soul and will be sorely missed.

Family and friends are invited to visit at the McKERSIE-KOCHER FUNERAL HOME 114 Main St. E. Milton 905-878-4452 on Friday, February 1, 2019 from 4 pm to 9 pm. Vigil Prayers will be prayed at the funeral home Friday evening at 8:30 pm. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Holy Rosary Catholic Church 139 Martin St. Milton on Saturday at 12:00 pm. Interment to follow at Evergreen Cemetery. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to the Milton District Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.
