It is with profound sadness that we announce that God called Carmine Carbone who peacefully passed on February 5, 2021 at the age of 83. Carmine immigrated to Canada at the young age of 17, to pursue new beginnings and fulfill his dreams. In 1958 he married Agata, whom he endearingly called his “girlfriend” for the past 62 years. Together they raised a family, son Piero and daughters Linda and Dianne. Carmine was positive, passionate and powerful. Small but mighty, he was a true businessman who led him to his dream of starting his business of Garden Foods in 1972. In 1981, he opened Garden Foods in Bolton. He proudly served his community and he will forever be admired and respected for the relationships that he established with his friends at the Ontario Food Terminal and small independent grocers. He was a mentor to his Garden Foods family – young and old, providing life lessons to all. One of Carmine’s greatest joys was being able to work along-side of his grandchildren and family as they continue his legacy. He instilled good work ethics, the importance of pursuing dreams and always putting family first. Carmine’s leisure time was spent travelling, golfing, making wine with his grandsons and cultivating his garden. Carmine will forever be loved by his dear wife Agata. Deeply missed by his children Piero (Rose), Linda (Paul) and Dianne (Frank). He will always be in the hearts of his amazing grandchildren Marc Anthony (Danielle), Joseph (Alessia), Alexandrea, Lisa Marie, Gian Luca and Vincent. He will be held dear in the hearts of his family, relatives and many friends. His bright smile and “super duper” attitude will be missed by all.
