Goodbyes hurt the most when the story was not finished.
With profound sadness and broken hearts, the family of CJ Chiarello announces his untimely passing. CJ leaves behind his loving family who will miss him dearly. Beloved son of Cory Chiarello (Lita) and Toni Chiarello. Cherished grandson of Carmine Chiarello (late Egilda), Betty and Gus Landry (Cristello) and late Rocky Cristello. Special blended brother of Aaron and Eden Alessandrini. Dear nephew of Carmela Grand (Larry), late Godfather Ralph Chiarello (Cathy), Doting Aunt Kim Falco and Godmother Wendy Turmaine (Steve). Loving cousin of the late Sarah M. Grand, Rachel McEwen (Quintin), Kassandra Chiarello, Carmine Chiarello Jr., Josh Marasco (Janey) and Tasha Marasco. He will be lovingly remembered by the Millard Family: Kim, Brent, Elise and Anthony. CJ will be dearly missed by his fur babies “lil baby boo” Tia, Rocky, Lily and late Zeus.
CJ had a heart of gold. He was loving, thoughtful, caring, compassionate and loyal. He loved his family and friends. He had the most beautiful eyes that captured your attention, a smile that lit the room and gave the best hugs. He was very smart, witty and wrote beautiful sentiments of the heart to those he loved. He adored his cousins and loved being with them, spending quality time. His dog Tia was his absolute best friend, and they enjoyed a special relationship of unconditional love.
Due to Covid restrictions, a private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Northern Critters in Need would be appreciated by the family. A very heartfelt thank you to the SAH physicians, nurses and staff in Emerg, ICU, Michelle McEachern, Trillium Gift of Life Network, City Police Dept., and EMS for their compassionate care.
CJ is finally at rest. To all those who have loved him, hold him close in your heart. The meaning of this tragedy is not his legacy. Let us find and encourage ourselves within our society, those gifts that make each of us special. Do not succumb to pressures or choices that can destroy you. Rise above pain. Live life to its fullest in light, positivity and with the extraordinary beauty of a simple heart. As a firm believer in organ donation, CJ’s caring heart has saved four recipients. As a family, it was our honour to see that his wishes were fulfilled. Our love for CJ is forever. It has no boundary from this world to the next. Please honour his memory with a life well lived.
