<div itemprop="description">The sudden passing of Salvatore Iavarone on September 26th has been felt by many within the community of Montreal. Especially the automobile industry. Sam, as we all know him, was the prime example of a man who would give you the shirt off his back. I have never known a human to be so generous and so thoughtful. He opened his house to people who were unfortunate enough to have no place of their own, asking nothing in return. This was his style. You're sad? You're hungry? You're tired? Come sit at our table. I'll cook you up a storm of amazing traditional italian cuisine, we'll have some wine, talk about cars and golf and I'll make sure you get a good night's sleep. He was a simple man who immigrated to Canada and built a strong career and even stronger bonds with everyone he met. There are no words in the English language that can describe what we are all feeling. He was my father but to everyone reading this, my dad wanted me to say... You are family. <br> <br>We would like to thank Dr Sheldon Magder, Dr Durham, Nurse Réjean and Dr Melançon from both the Royal Victoria Hospital and the Montreal Neurological Institute for all of their efforts and passion in helping this man who was a stranger to them. Their compassion was not unnoticed. <br> <br>He leaves behind his wife Judy, his son Mario (Mat), daughters Juliana (Trevor) and Alessandra (Jason), brother Angelo (Assunta), sisters Carmela and Teresa, his father in-law George, his brothers in law Lawrence (Murielle), Urick (Hye-Jin), Terry, his sisters in-law Assunta and Mirella, his nieces and nephews and all the other family members and friends. <br> <br>The funeral will be held in the Rideau Funeral Home on Saturday September 29. Visitation will be from 5-7 pm. Ceremony will be held at 7pm. <br> <br> <br> <br>Le décès soudain de Salvatore Iavarone le 26 septembre 2018 a marqué plusieurs parmis la communauté de Montréal; surtout dans l'industrie automobile. Sam, de son nom plus familier, était l'exemple ultime d'un homme qui donnerait tout pour aider ceux en besoin. Je n'ai jamais connu un être humain si généreux et attentionné. Il ouvrait sa porte à ceux qui n'avait pas d'endroit ou aller, sans s'attendre à quelque chose en retour. C'était son style. Vous êtes triste? Vous avez faim? Vous êtes fatigué? Joignez-vous à notre table. Je vous prépare un bon repas de mets traditionnels italiens, nous prendrons un verre de vin, parlerons de voitures et de golf et je m'assure que vous aurez une bonne nuit de sommeil. C'était un homme simple qui a immigré au Canada et a développé une grande carrière et des liens précieux avec tous ceux qu'il rencontrait. Il n'y a pas de mots qui peuvent décrire ce que nous ressentons. Il était mon père, mais à tous ceux qui me lisent en ce moment, mon père aurait voulu que je dise... que vous êtes notre famille. <br> <br>Nous voulons remercier Dr. Sheldon Magder, Dr. Durham, infirmier Réjean et Dr. Melançon de l'hôpital Royal Victoria et l'Institut Neurologique de Montréal pour leurs efforts et la passion qu'ils ont démontrée en aidant cet homme qui leur était un inconnu. Leur compassion ne sera jamais oubliée. <br> <br>Il laisse dans le deuil son épouse Judy, son fils Mario (Mathieu), ses filles Juliana (Trevor) et Alessandra (Jason), son frère Angelo (Assunta), ses soeurs Carmela et Teresa, son beau-père George, ses beaux-frères Lawrence (Murielle), Urick (Hye-Jin), Terry, ses belles-soeurs Assunta et Mirella, ses neveux et nièces et tous les autres membres de la famille, ainsi que ses amis. <br> <br>La famille recevra les condoléances à la Maison funéraire Rideau, 4275, boul. des Sources, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, QC H9B 2A6 (514) 685-3344 le samedi, 29 septembre 2018 de 17h00 à 19h00 suivi d’une cérémonie à 19h00. <br> <br> <br></div>
