Campagnaro, Patric Alexander (Alex) --
It is with profound sadness that my daughter Paisleigh and I (Kellie) announce the passing of her loving father and my loving husband Alexander Campagnaro on Sunday, July 19,2020 at the Guelph General Hospital. Alex was predeceased by his parents Michael and Wilma Campagnaro and by his father-in-law Don Moffit. He was the wonderful son-in-law of Sheila Moffit. Alex was the fun-loving brother of Michelle Coulson (Jim) of Red Deer AB, Marcia McCarville of Waterloo, Ali Frey (Larry) of Guelph and Janet Campagnaro Kirby (Dennis) of Waterloo. He was the fun-loving brother-in-law of Lynn and Rob LaTorre of Oro Station, Don and Kim Moffit of Chatsworth and the late Lori and John Salmon, late of Kitchener. Alex was the favourite jokester to his nieces and nephews Avery, Linsey, Jordan, Jessica, Nicolette, Michael, Ayden, Shannon, Jaida, Addyson. He was also great-uncle to two nieces and one nephew.
Alex was a loving, kind, and generous husband for 24 years. He never wanted for much, but would take great pleasure giving to others. He was the best dad and cheerleader to his daughter Paisleigh and she was his pride and joy for the past 18 years. He never missed a practice or game regardless of the sport or any dance recitals. The sun rose and set on Paisleigh and her accomplishments. He loved having her friends at the house so he could get in on what they were up to and they loved chatting with him.
He had the biggest heart. He was kind and would lend his hand to anyone who needed his help. Alex could be found in his garage tinkering, listening to tunes or hockey and baseball games. Friends, neighbours and family would drop by the garage to have a chat and Alex would always be welcoming. We named him ‘’The Ambassador of Beattie St.” He was loved by all who knew him. Alex was an amazing cook and enjoyed spending time in the kitchen preparing meals for friends and family. He was well-versed in world issues and politics and could debate with the best of them. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing. He loved animals of all kinds and would go out of his way to pet a dog passing by the house. Alex dedicated 34 years to Hammond Manufacturing. He took great pride in his work and challenged himself to find ways to streamline his actions to do his job more efficiently.
Alex was the biggest and most dedicated Toronto Maple Leaf fan. He would say “I bleed blue.” He loved his Leaf Room where he displayed all his collectables. Every year, he waited for the team to make the playoffs and to win that cup, but to no avail... he still remained a fan each and every year.
Next time you think of Alex smile and raise a glass of white wine to him.
