Among many friends and family he left to cherish his memory are his daughters Grazia Giglione, Diane Janes (Mark), his grandchildren Karissa and Martin Janes, brother, Giuseppe Giglione, sister Grazia Giglione, as well as nieces and nephews in Italy. Dad left all that he knew to come to Canada in search of better things in 1951. He was an entrepreneur with successful businesses. He loved spending time in the sports bar chatting over espresso with his friends and playing cards. He had an infinite love for horses and also enjoyed the time spent at the race track.
