It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our rock, Joseph DiGrado. He was my mom's soulmate, confidant and best friend. He was a loving father, provider, teacher, role model and counselor to me and my brother. He was a loving grandfather who always took the time for to his granddaughters. My dad was a pillar in the community for both St. Lawrence the Martyr Roman Catholic Church in Scarborough and St. Benedict's Parish in Milton.
One of the greatest joys he had in his life, other than his family, was his ministry and his calling to be a Deacon in the Roman Catholic Faith. His love for his family and God surpasss none. He has touched the lives of so many and was always willing to listen to those who needed comfort.
Please help honour his legacy by always helping those in need, being kind to one another and keeping your faith.
