Carmine Gabriele Bonanni
21 February, 1936 – 3 April, 2021
Loved by many and greatly missed.
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Carmine Bonanni on April 3, 2021 at the age of 85 years.
Carmine was born in Bomba, Abruzzi, Italy. On May 16, 1957 at 21 years old, he came to Canada to find work. He worked construction in Northern Manitoba and for the majority of his career he worked for CP Rail in the Diesel shop as a skilled labourer in Winnipeg.
He met the love of his life Eleonora in the spring of 1971 and married her just three months later. Carmine will be fondly remembered as a quiet, gentle, and kind man, who loved his family and friends.
He loved to show off his garden and his wine making skills. He was always the first to arrive at our family events with a bag of fresh vegetables and a two liter bottle of homemade wine. He loved sports, RIA Television, a shot of Brandy, and a snooze here and there. He enjoyed jokes, funny stories and being part of the skit especially from his comedic wife Eleonora.
Predeceased in death by his parents, Donato and Giuseppina (nee Santorone), as well as his brothers Mauro and Antonio, sister Filomena (brother-in-law Rocco) and sister-in-law Carolina.
Carmine leaves to cherish his memory his beloved wife of 49 years Eleonora, brother Rocco, brother Nicola and wife Rosanna, many nephews, nieces, extended family and close family friends. Carmine was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

Zio Carmine will be greatly missed. He was a big part of our inner family circle. Not a milestone would be celebrated without inviting our Zio and Zia. He has always been there for all our family gatherings. Always the first to arrive with a big bottle of his home made wine, a big smile and always ready to celebrate with our family. He was not a man of many words. He was a humble, kind and unassuming man. We love you Zio and will miss you.
