Fiori was a quiet, gentle man with a good sense of humour. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus and coached little league baseball. Fiori would always support whatever sports his children were in. In his retirement he went to Sears to sell tools, which he thoroughly enjoyed. His favorite hobby was woodworking and he built many things, including his home and furniture. He was a perfectionist and many marveled at his talent. He will be sadly missed by his family and many friends.
