GITTO, Carl 
 After a heroic battle with pancreatic cancer, Carl has peacefully flown west. He leaves behind his high school sweetheart and beloved wife of 58 years, Tanya. He will be sadly missed by his daughters Tamara (Darren McGuire) and Natalie (Todd Wentz). Carl adored his four grandchildren- Casey and Grace McGuire as well as Talia and Cooper Wentz. He is also survived by his brother Robert (Teresa) and his sister Anne Marie (Gilbert). Carl began his love of flying as an Air Cadet who was awarded a flying scholarship. He then proceeded to build his hours and aviation ratings until he became a flying instructor at the Montreal Flying Club. Finally, in 1972, Carl was hired by Nordair. During his aviation career, he changed uniforms from Nordair to Canadian to Air Canada. Throughout his career, Carl never thought flying was a job. To him, flying was his passion. When he retired, Carl continued to be involved with aviation. He was a member of the Montreal Aviation Museum, Pionairs and RAPCAN

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the West Island Palliative Care Residence in Kirkland, Quebec or the Montreal Aviation Museum in Ste Anne de Bellevue, Quebec. A celebration of Carl's life will be held at a later date.
