Survived by his sisters-in-law Giovanna Isabella-Valenzi (Teodoro) of Italy. Sadly missed by many nieces, nephews and lifelong friends. Letterino left Italy to come to Canada for a better life for himself and his family, and helped so many others from Italy to do the same. He was generous to his family and friends always making sure they had what they needed. He took pride in his traditions including winemaking, gardening, picking blueberries and mushrooms and of course making homemade salami. He also loved fishing, hunting, playing cards, and watching hockey and soccer. In his younger days he enjoyed playing soccer and later in life he was his grandkids #1 fan on the soccer field. Letterino worked at Inco and was also a life-long member of the Caruso Club. He and his wife also enjoyed travelling to visit their family in Italy, Argentina and the USA. He lived a long full life and left a great legacy of love for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Our sincerest thanks to all those at St. Joseph’s Continuing Care that loved Letterino and took great care of him in his last years.
