Today (Feb. 8), I issued the following statement on behalf of Burlington City Council on the death of Pasquale Paletta:
“I, with many residents of Burlington, am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Pasquale Paletta. Our condolences go out to Pasquale’s family.
Pat, as he was affectionally known by his family, donated generously to health-care organizations, which has greatly benefitted all our residents. The City of Burlington has also been a recipient of his family’s generosity through numerous contributions including an addition at Carpenter Hospice, Tansley Woods Community Centre and a contribution to Paletta Mansion allowing the early twentieth century mansion to remain in public hands.
Pat’s many business interests through his hard work, perseverance and vision, have all contributed to the growth and prosperity of Burlington. His incredible legacy as a self-made businessman will continue to carry on now through his family.
Mr. Paletta has left us a great legacy that will last for years to come.”
