It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving Husband, Father, Nonno, Brother, Uncle and Friend to many.

Cherished by his dear daughters and sons-in-law, Sandra (Sam), Diana (Vito) and Nancy (Angelo). He was a proud Nonno of 6 grandchildren, Julian, Sabrina, Victoria, Matthew, Stefan and Rachel. Beloved brother to his sisters in Italy, Anna, Annunziata and Mirella. Brother-in-law to Celia, Lina, Giuseppe, Anna, Tony, Antonietta and Mary.

My deepest condolences to the Borea family for the loss of your loved one. I had the pleasure of working with Elio in the garage at Enbridge. He was a wonderful man, a little gruff on the outside but a heart of gold on the inside. He was a special person and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to meet him.
My thoughts are with your family.

Dear Diana, I extend my sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to you and your family at this most difficult time. From the obituary, it is evident that your father was an accomplished man who was loved by many and will be greatly missed ... so many people to keep his memory alive. May your many wonderful memories bring you all comfort now and in the future. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My condolences to the family. We are going to miss Elio at the Enbridge garage. We definitely are going miss his cooking and his yelling and screaming at everyone here.
