Obituary of Pietro Lupi
Peacefully, surrounded by his family on Thursday September 24, 2020 in Palliative care at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, Pietro Lupi passed away at the age of 86. Devoted husband to Armanda (Cocozzoli) for 61 years. Cherished father to Anna (Robert Sr.) and Paul (Kim). Loving nonno to Robert Jr. (Brie) and Anthony. Dear brother to Gino Lupi in Italy and brother-in-Law to Maria. Also survived by his many sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by his parents Loreto and Emilia Lupi, brother Umberto Lupi and sister Lina DiCarlo and her husband Antonio.
Pietro was born in Broccostella, Frosinone, Italy, and at the age of 26 got married and left Italy with his wife Armanda to go live in Canada. Pietro enjoyed spending time with his family and had several hobbies. When he wasn’t making wine or tomato sauce you could find him tending to his garden and riding his bike around the neighborhood. He was always the supervisor for all family projects and enjoyed catching pesky critters that would try to get into his garden. He was a hardworking man who always put his Family first while also lending a helping hand to others. Above all Pietro was a gentle soul who brought strength and unity to our family. We love you and will miss you dearly.
