Greg Ardelli, Aug. 13, 1944-May 8, 2015, passed away peacefully at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital after a valient struggle with cancer.
Born and raised in Whitney Pier, Greg was the son of the late Marian and Julia (Gniewek) Ardelli. He was also predeceased by his son, Michael Gregory in 1997.
After attending Sydney Academy, Greg worked for a short time at Sydney Steel Plant and then in 1962 joined the RCAF and was stationed in Quebec. He later moved to Toronto, studied as a machinist at George Brown College and was employed by several companies as a precision machinist.
Greg was married and had one child, Michael in 1972. In the late 1970s he returned to Sydney and worked at Sydney Engine and finished his working career as an employee of Bernie’s Bakery.
Greg is survived by his brother, Stan, Burnaby, B.C., his sister, Leona and her husband, Bob, Calgary, Alta., and their children, Julianne, Bob Jr., Carolyn, Charles and their families. He is also survived by several Gniewek and Ardelli cousins and by a very special cousin, Lorraine Guyaux who has helped Greg so much through the years.
