June 15, 1933 to December 12, 2015 – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of “NONO JOE”.

He was so grateful to God to be blessed with such a rich life surrounded by wonderful family and friends…. And of course, Bella. Always a smile…. always a chuckle…. A devoted and loving husband to his wife, Zena (Del Colle) for 59 years. A dedicated and special father and father-in-law to Maria Medeiros (Joe) and Eda Johnson (Greg). A proud and precious Nono to Carli (Jay), Alana, Kayla (Matt) and Bryce (Rachel). Born to the late Eda and Ennio Nardini (Fano, Italy). Dear brother of Marino Nardini (Anna), late Emidio Nardini (Rosina) of Italy, Gianna Bardovagni (Remo) of Italy. Son-in-law of the late Italia and Nicola Del Colle. Loving brother-in-law of the late Mary Dominick (late Mike), Assunta “Tut” Slobedecki (late Eddie) and late Rita Roy (Gerard). Uncle of many special nieces and nephews.

His memory warms our hearts and leaves a smile on our faces.
