Obituary for Enrico Eliseo Mazzocato

MAZZOCATO, Enrico Eliseo
1948-2023
With great sadness, the family of Enrico Eliseo Mazzocato, in his 75th year, announce his passing on August 18, 2023 at St. Joseph’s Villa, Dundas. Enrico was born in Crespignaga, Italy to Teresa Tittoto and Galileo Mazzocato. He was a strong ambitious man who left Italy at 18 with his brother Pio (April) and cousin Tony Dussin (Jole) to find a new life in Canada. They arrived in Hamilton in 1967. Enrico worked hard in the steel industry and within a few short years met Colleen (nee Lafortune) ( deceased 2022), his loving and devoted wife of 49 years. Together, they raised three sons in Caledonia, Michael (Jennifer) Mark (Kristi) and Matthew (Gianna). Enrico was a favourite uncle, a loyal compadre, and the best Nonno to his six grandchildren, Lilia & Alaina, Nicholas & Nathan, Anna & Luca. Enrico is survived by his brothers, Deigo (Maria), Claudio (Anna), and Pio (April) as well as his brother-in-law, Bruno, and predeceased by his sister Rita. He was Italian in all the best ways. He loved good food, good Italian music, his homemade wine and was a member of the Trevisani Nel Mondo. The Mazzocato family is grateful for the compassionate care given by the staff of St. Joseph’s Villa. Visitation will take place at the MILLER FUNERAL CHAPEL, Caledonia on Friday, August 25th from 4 to 7pm. Mass will be held at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, Caledonia on Saturday, August 26th at 1:00pm. Interment to follow in St. Patrick’s Cemetery, Caledonia. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please consider a donation to the St. Joseph’s Villa Foundation or PSP Society of Canada (pspsocietycanada.ca) in memory of Enrico.
