Felice D’Ascanio - 19

Etobicoke, ON - Manufacturing
On September 23, 1998, just his third day on the job, Felice was struck in the head by part of a skid, a wooden platform used to move crates. Felice had a big heart and had many good friends. He looked forward to the future and took pleasure in the small things of daily life. He had an open personality; non-judgemental, with a warmth for everyone he met. Felice had an artistic ability in both drawing and guitar. He was especially happy on the morning of September 23, 1998, as he was to purchase his first car, after work that day. We miss him more and more each and every day.
