Nigro, Davide


Davide Nigro

(September 3, 1936 – February 2, 2022)

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Davide Nigro.  After fearlessly battling cancer for many years he succumbed to complications from heart surgery.  He passed away in his family’s loving arms on February 2, 2022.  He is survived by his loving wife Francesca, his son Sergio and his wife Teresa, his son Joey and his wife Sabrina and his grandchildren Arianna, Serena and Davide (his namesake). He also leaves behind his brothers Emilio and Giuseppe along with many nieces and nephews.

He was born in San Fili, Provincia di Cosenza, Calabria, Italy. He immigrated to Canada in 1960, met Francesca in 1966 and they were married in 1967.  They began to study the Bible together and he was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1974. His life reflected the faith and love he had for his God, Jehovah and he instilled this strong faith in his children and grandchildren.  He was always busy in the ministry and took every opportunity to share Bible truths with everyone.

Davide touched many lives and will forever be remembered for his warm smile and cheerful demeanor.

“Because he has affection for me, I will rescue him.  I will protect him because he knows my name… He will call on me, and I will answer him…”  Psalm 91: 14, 15.

Visitation will take place on February 9, 2022 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.

At The St. John’s Dixie Funeral Home in Mississauga, 737 Dundas St E, L4Y2B5

    Our dear friend and sister, Franca, Sergio, Joey, and Family (and precious grandchildren),

    We are so sorry for your great loss. Losing a husband, a father, a nonno, a friend, is the hardest thing to suffer.

    We have so many wonderful memories of happy times we spent together, over so many years, talking, laughing, and sharing precious moments.

    Only Jehovah’s loyal love and the solid hope of the resurrection can comfort all our hearts at this time, knowing that our joy will be great when we will be able to be with Davide again. – John 5:28.

    Davide’s beautiful smile, his genuine love for God and people, will fill our hearts with joy once again.
    Until then, may Jehovah’s loyal love sustain you all. We are here in thoughts and prayers.

    50 years of true friendship is not forgotten, and it will continue for eternity – a gift from Jehovah.

    Your friends,

    Mike and Stella Pellegrino

    We are completely heartbroken over the loss of our dear, lifelong family friend and brother, Davide.
    We are so sorry, our dear Franca, Sergio, Joey, and family.

    He was a part of our everyday life growing up as children. We did everything together – parks, the cottage, the beach, assemblies, everyday family dinners – just so many wonderful, laughter-filled memories that made life so much fun.

    All we remember is a joyful, bubbly, joking, fun, always smiling Davide. He will always be remembered for his gentleness, his kindness, his willingness to help others, and his unforgettable laugh.

    We know that Jehovah will not forget such a loyal and faithful servant like Davide, who displayed all the qualities He loves.
    We all await the day when we will see him again with his big, beaming smile.
    We pray that Jehovah gives your family the strength to get through this difficult time.
