September 21, 2023

Pasquale (Pat) Cerulli, born on January 20, 1930, sadly passed away on September 21, 2023, at the age of 93. He was the beloved husband of Angela (Lina) Cerulli for 64 years and the adored father of Franca (Howie Rosen) and Eva (John Kanellopoulos). Pasquale was also a loving and cherished Nonno to Alexandra and Nicholas (Stefany Sacchetti). He was greatly loved by his nieces, nephews, grand nieces, and grand nephews. Pasquale was preceded in death by his siblings Damiano (Damy) and Gabriele, as well as Angela, and his parents Fioriggia DiTomasso and Francesco Cerulli.

Hailing from Provvidenti, Molise, Italy, Pasquale emigrated to Montreal in 1950, where he achieved the immigrant’s dream of success. In 1954, he co-founded Damy & Pat Landscaping with his brother, Damiano. The landscaping company has since flourished for close to 70 years. Pasquale’s prosperity allowed him to fulfill his dream retirement as a snowbird in Florida, creating a remarkable journey.

Family always held a special place in Pasquale’s heart and served as the foundation of his life. He prioritized his family’s education, health, safety, and ensuring they always had enough to eat, accompanied by a glass of homemade wine. Pasquale dedicated his life and work to his family, going above and beyond to guarantee their success.

The Cerulli family would like to extend their gratitude to the compassionate staff at CHSLD Alfred Desrochers and the Family Medicine and Palliative Care units of the Jewish General Hospital for their exceptional care. The viewing for Pasquale will be held on Monday, October 2, 2023, starting at 10:00 am at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex in Outremont, with the funeral mass following at 11:30 am at the same location. Interment will take place at Notre Dame des Neiges Cemetery in the Esther Blondin Mausoleum at 1:15 pm.

Despite dementia erasing some of his memories, Pasquale will never be forgotten. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations in Pasquale’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
