ROSARIO ZAMMITO 1931 - 2018 It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband and father, Rosario Zammito, on January 11, 2018. He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Francesca, daughters Giuseppina and Franca, sisters Giovanna Cuschera, Carmelina (Giuseppe Fuca) and Maria (Giovanni Pistone), sister-in-law Maria Caramazza, nephew John Caci (Rose), nephew Lou Caci (Anita), brothers and sisiters-in-law Franco and Anna Troia, Pino and Serafina Carramusa, and many nieces, nephews and cousins in Canada, Belgium, Sicily, Italy. He was predeceased by his parents Calogero and Giuseppa, brother Carmelo, sister Assunta, brother-in-law Vincenzo Caci, nephew Salvatore Caci, and two infant brothers. Rosario was born in Aragona, Sicily on January 28, 1931. He was the second of six children born to Calogero and Giuseppa Zammito. He grew up on the family farm and this is where he developed his love for gardening. In 1955 he immigrated to Canada and began working at CN Rail as a car man from where he retired in 1994. In 1959 he met and married the love of his life, Francesca Troia. They enjoyed a beautiful life together and lovingly raised their daughters Pina and Franca. Rosario was a loving husband, an adoring father, and a loyal and true friend. He lived his life with honour and integrity. He was happiest when he was surrounded by his family. He was kind and sincere with people and his actions always matched his words. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at Holy Rosary Parish, 510 River Avenue on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 11:00 a.m., with viewing and condolences at 10:00 a.m. Entombment to follow at Holy Angel Mausoleum.

Special thanks go out to the emergency staff at Health Sciences Centre for their kind and compassionate care, especially Nurse Sarah.

  • I am heart broken to hear about my god father passing away. He was an amazing man full of honor and integrity. I will never forget as a little boy when I took his apples from his back yard. I thought that I was in trouble but all he did is smile and let me keep them. He treated it as if nothing happened. The song Cats in the Cradle is true. You never seem to find time to spend with everyone and then it is too late. I would like to express my deepest condolences to my godmother Francesca, Pina and Franca. He will be sadly missed. Love you all. Corrado - Posted by: Corrado Lao (God son) on: Jan 13, 2018
