During his retirement, Gildo spent many hours fishing and gardening. He loved making wine to share with his family and friends.

Survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Romilda; children Ivana (Michael) O'Farrell and Andrew (Colleen); beloved grandchildren, Ethan, Madeline, Lucy and Olivia who were his pride and joy; sister Alma and mother in-law Maria Vogrig both in Italy and numerous nieces and nephews.
