Sergio really enjoyed attending family dinner gatherings, always bringing a bottle of wine and huge appetite. He enjoyed horse racing at the Downs, playing slot machines and watching sports on TV. He was always a very quiet man, soft spoken, until his favorite teams the Bombers and Jets played. Travelling to Vancouver, Vegas and Italy, with his most recent trip to Italy in 2016. He loved living in Kiwanis Chateau, where he had many friends and participated in the horse race game activity.

He also enjoyed meeting up with his friends at the Caboto Centre for lunch. He was a member of the Fogolar Association. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
