In Celebration of

Sandro Gentile

June 10, 1950 -  August 5, 2018

In the loving arms of family after a nine month journey through brain cancer, our beloved Sandro passed on Sunday, August 5. Predeceased by his father Pelino and mother Maria, Sandro leaves to one day meet again his wife Yvette and two daughters Tina and Lisa, his brothers Ross and David, his sisters-in-law Maria and Norma. Also missing him are his brother-in-law Louis and wife Diane, his sister-in-law Mary Ellen, niece Amanda (Lawrence), nephews Richard, Anthony, Christopher, great-niece Melina, nephews Patrice, Gervais (Kelly) and Ted. Sandro was loved and respected by his colleagues at Carleton University and many personal friends including Richard, Fabio and Michel.

Visitation will be held at Beechwood, Funeral, Cemetery and Cremation Services, 280 Beechwood Avenue, Ottawa, on Thursday, August 9 from 5 to 9 p.m. and Friday, August 10 from 9:30 a.m., followed by a Celebration of Life service at 10:30 a.m.

Deepest gratitude to his caregivers at Besserer Place, Maison de l’Est, Dr. Vincent and his palliative care team as well as Dr. Goindi and her team, Dr. Sachs, Dr. Caudrelier and Dr. Nichols.

Donations in Sandro’s memory may be made to the Ottawa Tool Library or to the Ingenium Foundation.

With Deepest Sympathy, Yvette, Tina and Lisa,
On the Loss of Sandro, Your Loved One
It's very hard to bear the loss
When loved ones go away,
Still, may the thoughts
Of those who care
Bring courage for today...
And may your cherished memories of Sandro
Bring comfort to you, too,
And help to make your beloved husband and dear father
Still very close to you, Yvette, Tina and Lisa
