Obituary of Aurelio Chiodo

It is with profound sadness and broken hearts that we have to announce the peaceful passing of Aurelio Chiodo, with his loving family by his side on April 11, 2021 at 3:01am, at the age of 82.  Aurelio, beloved husband of Cristina for 58-year wonderful years.  Loving and amazing father of Maria (Tom), Pina (Pat) and Santo (Sandy).  Cherished Nonno of Jeffrey (Emily), Christie (Matt), Patrick (Sonia), Felicia, Simone and Elio. Wonderful Great Nonno of Sophie, Jaxon, Leo, Thomas and his little princess Aria.


Aurelio, son of Santo and Caterina, brother of Lina, Emilia, Mena, Dora, Dina, Tonino, and Alfonso.  He will be lovingly remembered and immensely missed by his extended family and friends both here in Canada and in Italy.


Aurelio lived for his family.  He often said how lucky he was to have a wife who loved him unconditionally, whom he adored.  His 3 children who he loved and was so very proud of, his grandchildren and great grandchildren who he adored and made his family complete.  The truth is, his family were the lucky ones to have him.


Aurelio lived the most remarkable life.  He was born in Calabria, Italy.  He immigrated to Canada in 1961 to start a life with his beautiful love Cristina and that he did. He was a man of his word, he was loving, honest and incredibly loyal.  He had a huge heart and helped so many people without judgement.

His love for Soccer was like no other, his Team was Inter, black and blue were his favourite colours and he wore them well.


Aurelio retired at the age of 53 and began to live life to its fullest.  Aurelio traveled, bought every car he wanted, showered his love Cristina with gifts and bought her flowers every week.

Aurelio will forever be in our hearts, we will cherish every memory and will carry on with every tradition he has instilled in us. 


Aurelio was the life of the party and loved to celebrate every occasion. A celebration of life will be held at a later date when restrictions of the pandemic are lifted and we can celebrate his life the way he would love to.


Thank you all for the prayers and support, and a  Big Thank you to Dr. Barrettara, Dr. Schattner, Dr. Jane Huynh, staff home caregivers of Central East LHIN  and Lakeridge Health Oshawa Palliative Care.
