DEGILIO, Louis (July 4, 1921Nov. 22, 2008) - Louis passed away peacefully on November 22, at Woodhaven Residence in Markham, Ontario, surrounded by his family. He leaves behind his loving wife, Ida, of 62 years. He will be deeply missed by his three daughters, Mary Anne (Bob), Brenda, and Eloise (Dennis). Louis was a role model to his three girls, demonstrating hard work, perseverance, and love of family and friends. He was a devoted grandfather to Lauren, Brian, Sarah and Jesse. Louis will be lovingly remembered by his many nieces and nephews, especially Robert, Sandra and Dennis. He leaves behind his brother, Mario, sisters-in-law, Tina, Doris and Lina and brother-in-law Beppi. The family is very grateful to the staff of Woodhaven Residence for their loving care and support over the past year, and to Joanne and Robert Quinn for their sincere friendship. Louis emigrated from Italy to Canada as a youngster, and settled in Timmins where he resided until 2007. From early childhood, he was a devout Catholic and had a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. All his life, Louis took risks and embraced opportunities to better himself. He was an astute businessman and received many diplomas for the varied courses he pursued. After going to Los Angeles to earn his diploma in refrigeration, he worked in Toronto, and then returned to Timmins to begin his own business, Arctic Refrigeration. He excelled in his career, and one of his many accomplishments was the invention of the reverse heating system. Louis never forgot his roots, and often provided free services to those in need. When arthritis prevented him from continuing in refrigeration, Louis opened the Flamingo Motel, where he worked until his early retirement. Louis was an avid outdoorsman who spent most of his leisure hours at the cottage he built on Star Lake. He loved nature and all animals. Louis enjoyed walking long distances, and could often be seen with his dog by his side. Louis served his community throughout his life. He was a member of the Kiwanis Club, delivered Meals on Wheels, and volunteered for the Red Cross Society and the Lord's Kitchen. He donated generously to various charitable organizations. In lieu of flowers, any donations in Louis' memory may be made to the Alzheimer's Society, the Hospital for Sick Children or the Humane Society. A Funeral Mass will be held in Markham, Ontario at 11:00 on Wed., November 26, at St. Patrick's Church. A Memorial Mass will be held in Timmins in the summer of 2009. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the DIXON-GARLAND FUNERAL HOME, 166 Main Street N., Markham, Ont., L3P 1Y3 11333333
