Oshawa Funeral Home


Benjamin Conte

19 May, 19904 November, 2018

Benjamin Conte, creative thinker, one-of-a-kind musician and kind soul, died in his home on Sunday, November 4th, 2018, and is now resting in the arms of God. He was 28 years old. Some of Ben’s happiest moments were spent in the north, where he worked and played alongside other free-spirited tree planters. A keen, non-judgemental observer of humans, Ben studied psychology at Trent University. We will miss his happy, improvisational piano playing and his dark, dry wit. Cherished son of Mike Conte and Christy Conte (Calven), brother of Dallas, grandson of Nonna Giovina and beloved by his many aunts, uncles and cousins. Preceded in death by Grandma Esther and Nonno Angelo. Memorial donations may be made to your favourite charity. Or, consider planting a tree in Ben’s name. We invite friends and family to a celebration of Ben’s life at CHRIST MEMORIAL CHURCH, 81 Hillcroft Street in Oshawa. Visitation will be held on Saturday, November 17th from 10:00 - 12:00 followed by a church service at 12:00 noon. Online condolences may be made at

I remember the time me and Ben got together and we'd always be in his in his living room or on his back on his back porch creating music just out of nowhere and it would be very obviously very beautiful music and like you teach me of things to do a few things on on basic piano and stuff then y'all just simple keys that will keep us in tune together and yeah he was he was a great friend and I'll miss him dearly
