RUBINO, Giuseppe

September 05, 1926 – January 26th, 2020.
Peacefully, at Humber River Hospital at the age of 93.
Beloved husband to Maria-Arcangela Capotosto. Loving father to Luana(Lucio), Enio(Ghazala), Olga and Diana. Grandfather to Stefania(Anthony), Giancarlo(Danielle), Davide(Laura), and Cristina and great grandfather to Leo, Andrea, Vivianna, Jessica and Lucas. Relatives and friends are welcomed at The Bernardo Funeral Homes, 2960 Dufferin Street on Wednesday from 6 – 9 pm and Thursday from 2 – 4 & 6 – 9 pm. Mass of Christian burial on Friday January 31, 2020 in St. Bernard de Clairvaux Church at 10 a.m. Entombment in Westminster Cemetery. Any donation to the Sunnybrook Hospital Odette Cancer Center would be appreciated.

Son of Angelina Capotosto and Antonio Rubino

Canduce di pane, Peppino, Joe, Husband, Father, Hard worker, Grandfather, Great Grand Father.

As a little boy going to school he would walk down the streets with his drembulino on, shoes untied and have a tomato sandwich in his hands, Canduce di pane he would be called.

As Peppino was still a young boy and old enough to go work in the fields his mother would prepare 2 cigarette for him to take to work. He would be so good at ploughing up the fields that he would be finished by noon before everyone else and would have the afternoons free. This was the life in Itri. As Peppino got older he had to spent some time in the army, but he was called back home several times because he was the only one left to help his parents with the farm work. In his 11 months in the army most of his time was spent in Lago di Como, where he saw a different life there than what was available in Itri. A life of opportunity. He was determined to go to L’America.

Giuseppe and Maria Arcangela lived across the street from each other. A passion that flourishes till this day. The love that he had for Maria was endless. After leaving the army Giuseppe and Maria decided to get married and start a family. This vision included a better life for him, his wife and his family. With only 5000 liras in his pocket he came to Canada in 1951. He called Maria and his daughter Luana the next year. He also sponsored his brother Gaetano and sister Maria Civita later on.

Giuseppe came to Canada with only a grade five education but had a desire to learn and be the best he could at whatever he did. Without a trade Joe learned many skills and started his own General Contracting business repairing homes. From sewers, plumbing, carpentry drywall, brick work and more. Joe could do it all. He was hard working and honest. As he got a little older Joe started working for DeHaviland Aircraft. When he finally retired he decided to continue helping his children with their homes and projects. His backyard was always the focus of joy for him. Growing tomatoes and zucchini from seedlings, planting peppers, eggplants, basil and more. His pear, plum and peach trees were always taken care of.

His garden was always well tended for with love and passion, much like his life.

Faithly he lived his life with honesty, fairness and integrity as his guiding lights.

The love of his life was his family. With four children, Luana (Lucio), Enio (Ghazala), Olga and Diana.
Four grandchildren Stefania (Anthony), Giancarlo (Danielle), Davide (Laura) and Cristina, and five great grandchildren Leo, Andrea, Vivianna, Lucas and Jessica

Joe and Maria are blessed.

We will miss him immensely
