It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Eldo Mucciante on January 3, 2022 at the age of 88. He is reunited with his beloved wife Barbara (1993) whom he adored. Devoted father to Steven, Glenn (Louise), Annette (Lino) Celestini, Elda (Joe) Picton and Lisa (Brian). Beloved Grandpa to 10 grandchildren, Matthew, Tara, Jessica, Robbie, Briar, Sierra, Christina, Wesley, Emma and Christopher, and 5 great grandchildren. Predeceased by his parents, Agostino and Anna. Brother to Nick (Nancy), Divino (Anna) and the late John. Eldo will be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews and cousins, as well as the countless friends and neighbours that he shared many good times with. Eldo was born in S. Stefano de Sessiano, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1951 where he started a long career with Interlake Steel Products as a laborer, working his way up to Plant Manager. Eldo was happiest tending to his vegetable garden, making beef jerky for his grandchildren, and working in his custom workshop (“the Barn”) building outdoor furniture and other wonderful treasures. All of this he gladly shared with his family and friends, constantly spreading his light and love. He will be dearly missed. A special thank you to the staff in Montebello home at Henley House for your care and compassion. Relatives and friends will be received by appointment only on Sunday, January 9, 2022 from 3:00 - 7:00 PM. You must call 905-227-0161 to make your appointment. All COVID protocols remain in place.
