From his family.
Gianluca Cellucci was a dear friend, brother, and son, whom we lost suddenly and tragically on February 7, 2016, at the age of 22. Gianluca was genuine, loyal, brave, determined and honourable. He loved traveling, playing sports, and thrived when he was outdoors. Gianluca’s gentle nature and adventurous spirit touched and inspired all those who were fortunate enough to know him. He lived his life to the fullest and encouraged his friends and family to do the same. Gianluca was a political science graduate who was passionate about social justice issues and aspired to join local law enforcement, through which, he would have undoubtedly made significant contributions to society.
In supporting and furthering Gianluca’s passion for life and for social justice,his family are in the process of creating a Foundation in Gianluca Cellucci’s honour, “Gianluca’s Gift”. Its overall vision is to support at-risk and underprivileged youth and provide them with opportunities that would otherwise not be accessible. In doing so, we aim to ensure that the youth of York Region develop the same positive character traits that Gianluca possessed.
