Sadly, we announce  that Gino has passed. Survived by nieces Enid (Gary) Blackwood, Debora Girardo and Brenda Laface.  Nephews Bob (Yvonne) Girardo and Lloyd (Shannon) Girardo.  He will be dearly missed by his special friend, Chantal Kryszew, his good neighbours who looked in on him and his many friends.  Special Thank you to the Royal Columbian Hospital staff on 6th floor South who cared for Gino and his doctor, Alex Weinburg.  Gino enjoyed feeding the wild birds and hummingbirds in his many feeders.  He enjoyed gardening, nature and wood working.  He was always willing to lend a hand where ever and when ever needed.  A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 20th at Columbia-Bowell Chapel, 219 6th Street, New Westminster.  Condolences for the family may be left at
