Giancarlo Anthony Silvestri

Giancarlo “John” Anthony Silvestri, 65, dedicated husband, father, and friend passed away at Sunnybrook Hospital Toronto, Ontario on Friday November 17th, 2023, after a long-fought battle with cancer.
John was born to Carmine and Antonietta Silvestri in Cugnoli Italy on February 22, 1958. The family immigrated to Canada in 1960 to Halifax, NS. The family then moved to Toronto, Ontario in 1965. He was the second youngest of 5 children: Sergio, Adriana, Enzo and Miranda.
After some years of factory work, he eventually found his passion as a Heavy Equipment Operator for 40+ years. For John, this never seemed to be work but more of his favorite pastime. Being a part of the Grascan Construction family brought John great pride. Here John would meet a group of co-workers that would develop into lifelong friends that have became household names in the Silvestri house. 
John met his wife Kathy in the early 80’s and they married in 1985. Soon after they welcomed their first child Krista in 1987. Followed by the birth of their son Kevin in 1992. John and Kathy raised their family in Orangeville, Ontario for 31 years. It was a priority for John to put his family first. He would never complain about his long hours or commute, he did whatever he had to do to provide. 
Throughout the years, John enjoyed playing golf, vacationing, and spending time with his family.
The family has honored his wishes for cremation and a Celebration of Life/ Memorial Service will be held on Sunday December 17th , 2023 from 1-4 pm.
