Gervasio was born on December 10, 1932, in San Vito, Treviso, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1961. He returned to Italy in 1966 to marry the love of his life Silvia, and they came back to Medicine Hat where they made a life together. Gervasio was a gentle soul whose kindness and warmth will be missed by all who met him. His life was guided by three principles, a strong faith in God; love and dedication to his family; and a strong work ethic. He was always optimistic and made you feel welcome when visiting him. He enjoyed puttering around the house and took great pride in his garden and sharing in the bounty of his harvest.
