The Centre Leonardo da Vinci has lost one of its founding fathers, our Chairman of the Board Mr. Giuseppe Borsellino, who was our greatest benefactor, ally and most importantly our true friend. The Leonardo da Vinci Centre was his dream, his child. Like his child he watched over it and saw to it that it was always taken care of. Over the nineteen and a half years, he was omnipresent and always ready to help meet the needs of the Centre.
Many will write of Mr. Borsellino’s many accomplishments. Many will write of his dedication to not only the great Italian Community of Montreal but also to so many other communities and associations. Many will write that he was an extraordinary humanitarian and a true philanthropist. All of these things are true and accurate for he truly was a great, outstanding man!
Our Board, administration and staff, here at the Centre, are deeply saddened with his sudden passing. We have lost our great mentor and an even greater friend.
Thank you Mr. Borsellino for everything that you did for so many people and thank you for your constant guidance and support of our Centre.
We extend our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all.
Joe Pannunzio, CLDV President & Pat Buttino, General Manager
