Giuseppe (Joe) Lorenzo Tiberi Obituary
Passed peacefully, surrounded by his family, at Juravinski Hospital on November 28th, 2021 in his 92nd year. Beloved husband of 68 years to Vincenza (Ferrelli). Predeceased by his parents Vincenzo & Rosa Tiberi and son-in-law to the late Michele & Rosaria Ferrelli. Devoted & loving father to Vince (Laurie), Libby (Deb), Angela Dearlove (late Frank), Rita (Sam). He will be missed by his grandchildren Mike (Josee), Kristina (Duane), Dustin (Stacey), Summer (Rob) and his great grandchildren Joseph, Elianna, Dominic, Daniel, Sophia and Briella.
Brother to the late Margaret and Mike Ficcarra, the late Maria and Giovanni Candelora, the late Salvatore (Anna) Tiberi. Brother-in-law to Josephine (late Liberatore) D’Amico and Lina & Nino Del Monaco. Joe is now reunited in heaven with his brother Salvatore and best friend and brother-in-law Libby and we are sure they are already pouring concrete and have started up their “Good Enough” construction jobs.
He is also survived by his many nieces & nephews and was always affectionately known as Uncle Joe to them all. Joe was born in Pettorano Sul Gizio, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1953. He worked for various contractors as a cement finisher and was a proud member of LIUNA local 837 for over 55 years. Joe also kept busy pouring and finishing concrete driveways and walkways throughout the city as his own business for many years. Joe loved his family, his house, and his garden, and participated in cooking polenta for his family and his Italian community at various events. The family would like to thank the staff at Wentworth Heights retirement home, Edgerton neighborhood for their care and compassion shown to Joe during his stay.
