Romeo D’Ambrogio, at the age of 87, passed away at his home peacefully in Etobicoke on Saturday, February 10, 2018.
Romeo is survived by loving members of his immediate family: devoted wife Olga, children Rita and Carlo, daughter-in-law Wendy, and grandchildren Marco, Christina, Stefanie and Pamela.
Romeo was born in Italy in 1930 and emigrated to Toronto in 1951. Later that year in December he married his sweetheart Olga. At the time of his death, Romeo and Olga were married for over 66 years.
Romeo found a passion in the beauty of flowers and became a well-known and respected florist within the west-end Toronto community for over 40 years. In the 1970s, while operating his own flower shop, Romeo Florist, on Eglinton Avenue West, Romeo was recognized by his peers within the floral community as a top florist and for several years he exhibited his craft at the Horticultural Building during the CNE.
Romeo’s other passion in life was the love of sports: his beloved Maple Leafs, Azzurri Nazionale, and most of all, Roma Giallorossi (AS Roma).
Romeo was a dedicated family man. He was selfless, hard-working and a kind-hearted man who always put his family first.
To his family, he is forever “Numero Uno!”
