Prior to immigrating to Canada in 1955, Stefano served in WWII. He brought to Canada his generous and giving spirit, sharing that with others that he sponsored and supported throughout his life. In addition to his family, he had many loves, his dog, hunting and especially wrestling where his enthusiasm would sometimes get him in trouble. A hardworking man, he enjoyed wine making, gardening and traveling to Italy and Vegas. He was employed with Canada Post and Niagara Parks.
