OBITUARY

Angelo Monaco

5 May , 19406 May , 2019

It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved husband and father. Angelo was born in Celenza Valfortore, Foggia, Italy on May 5, 1940 and passed on May 6, 2019 in Vancouver BC. He is leaving behind his wife Rita of just over 50 years and children Anna and Nick. Angelo immigrated to Canada as a newlywed in 1968, settling in Vancouver to start his life and family. He was a master tailor working in numerous locations in Vancouver and at home. Over the course of the years many clients became friends, and those friends became family. Most of those who had alterations done at home would detour into the kitchen for a customary homemade glass of wine, coffee and cookies. Among his passions were making and sharing his wine, but his special passion was his garden, growing tomatoes, beans, zucchini, figs, plums and his treasured kiwis. Funeral Mass will be held at 11:00am on Monday, May 13, 2019 at Our Lady of Sorrows, 555 Slocan Street, Vancouver. Refreshments to be served immediately after. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully asks that donations are made to Canadian Blood Services, or Red Cross-Health Equipment Loan Program, or any organization that is dear to you.
