Francesco Ferrarelli

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that
whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternel life.

In Montreal, on April 25, 2020, at the age of 65 years passed away Mr. Francesco Ferrarelli. He is survived by his wife, Sylvie, his children Lisa (Éric de Léry), Francis (Marika Rossodivita) and Laura (Aldo Conti), his beautiful grandchildren Loïc, Noah, Logan and Romi, his brothers Giuseppe (Giovanna Occhinero ) and Giovanni (Megan Lucille), his nephews and nieces as well as many relatives and friends.

Frank lived his life as he conceived it; through his passion for his work
in his role as a loving husband, a protective father and a proud grandfather.
Amazed by the splendours of the world, he loved traveling with his wife, Sylvie.

He was a proud business owner, a devoted boss, and a true friend. Generous and available, he never missed an opportunity to help others. He was appreciated and loved by so many.

Courageous and optimistic, he lived with a challenging heart condition for many years. He fought many battles, and he never gave up. He continued to live a beautiful life with confidence and resilience.

Frank leaves an immeasurable void.

the current situation obliges us to hold a private funeral.
Know that you will be in our thoughts.

The family would like to thank the entire care team at the Royal Victoria Hospital, where he was cared for, all these years. We greatly appreciate
Doctor Louay Mardini for his care and compassion in Frank’s last moments.

Your messages of sympathy, can be translated in memorial donations to the McGill University Health Center Foundation.

A virtual mass will be held in his memory, on the facebook Live of the Church of Madonna Della Difesa, May 2nd at 11 am.

How do can anyone put into words, how great a man Frank was; from the first moment you met him he made you feel like you were part of his family, he treated everyone with compassion, empathy and kindness, he will be missed because he was an angel to everyone he met.

A vous, tous les membres de la famille de Frank, je tiens à vous dire que je suis profondément attristé par le départ d’un homme d’une grande humanité et que je considérait comme un chic type. Son départ laisse un grand vide dans mon quotidien. Nos petites discussions du matin me manqueront beaucoup. Bon courage.

J’offre toutes mes sympathies à la famille de Frank, à son épouse Sylvie ainsi qu’à ses enfants dont il était très fier, Lisa, Francis et Laura. Je ne l’ai pas beaucoup connu, je le rencontrais lors de ses fameux partys d’employés et aussi lorsqu’il venait à Québec. D’ailleurs, j’ai bien apprécié qu’il soit venu aux funérailles de Sylvie et je l’ai senti très ému (quelques semaines auparavant) lors de sa visite à l’hôpital constatant comment mon épouse était affaiblie et amoindrie et aux soins palliatifs (cancer). Sylvie l’estimait beaucoup, elle disait qu’elle avait un bon patron empathique et généreux. Elle aurait eu énormément de peine de son départ. Encore une fois, mes plus sincères condoléances!

To Sylvie, Francis, Lisa, Laura and family, we are very saddened to hear of Frank's passing. He was a very special person! I can't think of a man with a bigger heart and it is a tragic metaphor that the heart beating in his chest would fail him. Frank is a man that cannot be replaced, we can only feel his profound loss. In time, the memories that are so sad today will become beautiful memories of who he was and what he meant to us, only time can bridge that gap. Please accept our most sincere condolences.

We would like to express our deepest condolences to you Francis and your family in this difficult time. Our hearts are saddened and our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Someone so special can never be forgotten and that was your father, a very kind, loyal and generous soul. Taken way too soon and gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure; may this treasure give you and your family peace and comfort. RIP Frank and God bless all of you in this time of sorrow.

C’est avec beaucoup de peine que nous avons appris la triste nouvelle. Toujours, lorsque nous vous rencontrions, nous avons passé des moments agréables ensemble et trouvé qu’Éric était vraiment choyé de faire partie d'une famille aussi bienveillante. Aussi, nous avons eu l’occasion de voir à quel point Frank était un homme bon, généreux, positif et très famille. Il rayonnait de joie en présence de ses enfants merveilleux, Lisa, Francis et Laura, leur conjoint et ses petits-enfants, dont Loïc et Noah qui nous rappellent toujours à quel point Nonno et Mamie s’occupent bien d’eux.  Inutile de vous dire que nous aurions tellement aimé vous faire part en personne de nos condoléances. Ça n’est que partie remise. À défaut d’être là en personne auprès de vous, nous y sommes en pensée et nous prions pour vous tous afin que vous trouviez le courage voulu pour passer au travers de ces moments si difficiles. À cet égard, le souvenir de Frank saura sûrement vous inspirer, car il était la personnification même du courage face aux difficultés de la vie. Et malgré tout, sa résilience ne le cédait en rien à sa joie de vivre et la fierté qu'il éprouvait envers tous et chacun d'entre vous. Repose en paix cher Frank! Famille de Léry

Frank est parti beaucoup trop tôt. Il était un bon vivant, fier leader, un exemple de réussite et de persévérance. Sa bonne humeur, sa joie de vivre et son sourire resteront gravés dans nos mémoires. Nos pensées vont à son épouse, à ses enfants, à ses petits-enfants, à ses frères ainsi qu’à toute sa famille, à ses amis et à ses employés. Courage à vous tous. Il ne sera jamais oublié. Que son âme repose en paix.

To Lise and her siblings, Frank has left a void in our hearts, we shared so many stories over the years. Frank was more than a client he was friend . A man of integrity , laughter and compassion. He was always there to help others . He will be missed and never forgotten. You were called to the heavens for they were missing a true human being with lots of heart. Safe journey my friend until we meet again. My condolences in these hard times.

My deepest condolences to you all. I know Frank through my father Mimmo Farella , they were childhood friends. I would see Frank when he would come to our store , he would walk In with that smile! He and my father would talk about the good old days, and then talk about their grandchildren. My father and Frank would go on about the good times they had growing up. He was very dear friend to my father and we will always remember Frank who had a big loving heart. Imma Farella

To Sylvie, Francis, Lisa, Laura and family, I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Frank. We worked together as business associates for many years and I will always remember his professionalism, always ready to help, and his passion for the business. He always made time to teach and I enjoyed all his explanations about mushrooms. His family was a sense of pride. Most importantly what came through was a man generous of spirit, kind and a true gentleman. No words will take away the pain you are all feeling, however though his physical body may be gone, his spirit lives on and he will always be by your side, just look for the signs. He will surely be missed by all. May the memories you hold in your heart comfort you through your grief.
