Joe Di Fonzo



  • Immigrated to Canada from Italy when I was three months old, can’t remember the two week boat ride

  • Grew up in mid-Toronto in my own “family village”. Within a two block radius there were at least twenty homes owned by relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins)….a lot of eyes watching your every move.

  • I have only brothers (3), got married and had only sons (7). God has a sense of humor

  • Spent four years on the U. of T. Boxing Team. I got smart and did not try to make a career of it

  • My mother had a recipe for snails, which I love to this day
