Obituary for Domenico "Mimmo" Tullio
In loving memory of Domenico (Mimmo) Tullio, 46 years. Mimmo died peacefully, on February 28th, at home, with his family by his side. Beloved husband of Gina (Macoritto), and incredible father to Mia and Abby. Dear son of Antonio (predeceased) and Civita Tullio, son-in-law of Ed and Paula Macoritto, and cherished brother of Lucia (Fern) Faggioni, Anna (Bryan) Bimm, Maria (Orazio – predeceased) DiMeo, Toni Vautour, and Tony (Deanna) Tullio, and brother-in-law to Michael (Dorothy) Macoritto and Lia Macoritto. Wonderful uncle to Sheila, David, Melissa, Mandy, Nicholas, Adele, Amelie, Gus, Brooklyn and Chad.
Mimmo attended high school at Sudbury Secondary, and then graduated from Laurentian University with a degree in Biology. He began work at Falconbridge in March, 1996 and then transitioned to Inco in January, 2001, where he worked for almost fifteen years as a craneman. Mimmo was well respected in the workplace as he always worked to the best of his ability and took great pride in his job. He made many friends over the years and will be missed by his Steelworker brothers and sisters.
Mimmo has always cherished the simple things in life – time with his wife and daughters, a nice long walk with his dog Margo, watching his beloved soccer team Chelsea, a good fish, or a day spent taking care of his lawns and gardens. It was this appreciation for the simple things that allowed Mimmo to live a life focused on what truly matters. He will be forever missed and cherished in the hearts of the ones he loved.
The family would also like to thank from the bottom of their hearts Dr. Singh and nurse Janice Romanko from the Symptom and Pain Management team and the supportive staffs from the Shared Care Team and CCAC. As well, they would like to thank their incredible social workers Renee Mallet and Gillian Romanko for their outstanding support, compassion and guidance. Also, the family would like to express their most sincere gratitude to Bayshore nurse Jenna Huff for always going over and above taking care of Mimmo’s every need and ensuring his wishes were met with respect and grace. Lastly, the family would like to acknowledge the kindness, compassion, support and guidance they received from their family doctor, Dr. Dhatt and her staff throughout this journey. She helped Mimmo live a life of dignity and strength and we will be forever grateful.
Resting at the Lougheed Funeral Home, 252 Regent Street, Sudbury where friends may call from 2-5 & 7-9pm Friday. Memorial Mass will be at Our Lady of Hope Church, 591 Brennan Rd., Sudbury on Saturday, March 4th, 2017 at 1:30 pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to a charity that is near and dear to them – the Cristina Care Fund through the NECC- as this charity helped them out many times throughout their journey.
