Albert Joseph Di Battista (see Battista)

On the evening of July 12, 2019 after a long and heartbreaking battle with dementia, Albert slipped the confines of this cruel disease. As his family we are left to not only mourn our loss, but to share our memories that he could not in his final years. Al was a proud, kind man who loved his family and his life. He was born and bred in Toronto, played baseball and hockey and in later years was proud to coach young men in hockey. He loved his garden and spent many hours in it and watching sports on TV. We are eternally grateful to the support staff at Holland Christian Homes especially Jennifer, Amber and Pauline who made his final months with this unfair disease as enjoyable as possible. Left to mourn this great man are his loving wife Janet, his daughter Lauretta, his two sons Joseph (Nancy) and Derek. his beloved grandchildren Daniel (Kayla), Haleigh (Mike), Kirstin (Neil), Ryan and Bradley. Six loved great grandchildren Colton, Aiden, Jackson, Lincoln, Maya and Everleigh. Also survived by Corky (Helen), Anna, Carmen (Sigi).Waiting for him with open arms are Carmen and Lauretta (parents) sister Vera (Bruno), John (Vicky), Fred (Audrey), Geno (Phyllis), Louie (Gerry) and Peter. Friends will be received at the Ward Funeral Home, 52 Main St. South, Brampton on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 from 2-9pm. A celebration of Al's life will be held at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church, 66A Main St. South, Brampton on Friday at 10:30am. Cremation has taken place. In lieu of flowers donations to the Alzheimer's Society of Peel would be appreciated.

Uncle Barney was a character. I have wonderful memories of visits on Sundays to Golden Orchard Drive. He always reminded me of Don Cherry when it came to his hockey commentary. He had a great sense of humour and was always interested in what you were doing. Although I couldn't share the last part of his life living away from Canada, I have wonderful memories of him and will miss him always. Thinking of you Auntie Janet, Laurie, Joey, Derek and your extended families and of course my dad (Sigi), Auntie Anna, Uncle Corky (Helen) and all my cousins who mourn his loss. Love Lee Ann

Janet, Lori, Joey and Derek. Thinking of you all at this time. Your Dad was a true gentleman. I loved listening to his stories and his strong voice singing. Will miss him on 2S. Love to all of you. Michelle B. AKA “Pat”.
