In Celebration of

Gaetano Verta

November 7, 1949 -  January 15, 2019

And just like that - the light we called home, who brought us together and showed us unconditional love - extinguished today. And here we are, left with the knowledge and wisdom he taught us, but also knowing that life as we know it, will never be the same. Beloved husband of Anna Marrocco. Devoted father of Luigi (Marie-Helene Bourgeois) and Daniel (Melissa Carbone) and grandfather of Siena and Alessio.

The family will receive condolences at Mount Royal Funeral Complex, 1297 chemin de la Foret, Outremont, H2V 2P9 on Sunday, January 20th 2019 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. The funeral service will be held on Monday, January 21st 2019 at 11 a.m. in the chapel of the complex followed by the burial.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Lung Cancer Canada.

Bon travaillant et toujours de bonne humeur, adorait sa famille et ses petits-enfants, aimait la bonne bouffe et le vin. Repose en paix mais tu es parti trop vite..

A simple term for describing the long relationship Gaetano and I had.
We met 33 years ago when I worked with him in the summer at the little machine shop location in Anjou.
We worked together more than 25 years and yet , all my fondest memories of him never involved work - he showed me how to make sausage by hand, we laughed & joked and argued whose sausage was best when I would bring my “messed up” idea of what spices I would mix .
The warmth & friendship Gaetano alway displayed with others was undeniable. The love he had for his family always palpable.
My life has been richer from him having been in it.
I shall greatly mourn his passing but more importantly celebrate the fact he had a place in my life.
My deepest sympathies to all those whose lives he touched .
