Obituary

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our dear father Joseph Francis Vairo at the age of 83. He is now reunited with his beloved wife Joan who he affectionately called “Chooch”. Joe was a proud Italian-Canadian who was dearly loved by his family and liked by everyone he met. He had a great sense of humor and could always make light of any situation. He loved his three children deeply. Together with his late wife Joan, they built a good life and a lifetime of memories including special Christmas eve celebrations, family road trips, time at camp and so much more. Much time was spent at the family camp where he taught us to swim, fish, waterski and enjoy the outdoors. Joe loved to start the day by putting on his overalls, tending to his garden, hunting for mushrooms, puttering around building something or fixing whatever needed fixin’. At the end of the day, he would bring out his guitar and croon out songs by the campfire. He loved sitting around the campfire singing “The Wheel of Fortune”. Everyone looked forward to hearing him play the oldies and he loved to get everyone involved with his favourite sing-along “Eh Cumpari”. Joe was a musician playing in front of local crowds from an early age. In his early day, he played lead with The Jack Smith Quartet. He loved fishing at his favourite secret fishing spot (which he never did give up) saying "It was THE BEST speckled trout he’d ever fished." Joe was a proud father and dedicated husband. He is survived by his children Tina Tanchin (Ron), Dino Vairo (Stacey) and Joe Vairo Jr (Manuela) and 6 wonderful grandchildren who he loved to impart words of wisdom to: Jordan, Ron, Syra, Francesca, Marcus and Luca. A special, thoughtful and respectful cousin to Ann Marie (Sam), Linda, Bob and Natasha - Joey, with lifelong memories, summer reunions will be cherished forever. He will be sadly missed by his sisters- & brothers-in-law, Pat Byrne, Joyce Lefebvre (Denis), Darcy Byrne, Steve Millar and Bill Thomson, and close family friends Mike (Compare) Marcuccio and family. Sadly missed by many nieces and nephews. He’s gone but he’ll never be forgotten for his words of wisdom, “Never touch the principle!” We love you Dad, and we’ll miss you so much. Rest in peace.

Remember the great times playing trumpet in the Sudbury Tech marching band 1954-55 with Joe, and the fun on band bus out-of-town trips, then a bit later working together at the Sudbury Arena Wolves games in the canteens. Joe was enviously handsome, gregarious personality, and a fine friend. Although it's decades later, the sense of sadness of his decease envelops at present. Sympathy and sorrow to all family, with sincere condolence for your (our) loss. RIP Joe! ✝️
