In Loving Memory of

Giovanni "John" Montesano


Obituary of Giovanni "John" Montesano

Peacefully John slipped away, surrounded by his loving family at Hospice Niagara, on Thursday, June 11, 2020, at the age of 86. Loving father of Carlos (Pamela), Mirta (Randy), Daniel (Scott), Monica (Chris), Tony (Shelley), and Grandpa of many grandchildren, step-grandchildren and great-grandchildren. John will be remembered by his brothers Luigi (the late Maria), Richard (June), and by many nieces and nephews.

Around the age of 16, John travelled to South America with his brothers. They settled in Argentina, where they enjoyed the culture and lifestyle. In 1973, John decided to move to Canada. Once he got established and settled into his job working as a butcher, his family joined him shortly after. John’s favourite singer (whom he loved) was Carlos Gardel. Through the years he enjoyed watching and participating in the sport, boxing.

He will be remembered as a strong independent man, who loved being at his home in Port Colborne. A special thank you to his palliative care team, the LHIN organization, and his team at Hospice Niagara for their care and support.  Cremation will be taking place and a private family gathering will be held at Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). Memorial donations given to Hospice Niagara would be appreciated by John's family.
