OBITUARY

George Scarinci

October 22, 1959January 13, 2019

It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of George Scarinci on Sunday January 13th at 3:27am at VGH. Georgie was surrounded by his loving Family and embraced by his Wife Angelika as he passed away peacefully after a long and courageous, heroic battle with Cancer.

Giorgio Scarinci was born in Mozzagronga and resided in Genova, Italy on October 22, 1959. Later the Family moved to Montreal and finally made their home in Vancouver, BC. He and his Mother and his Sister worked together to create a beautiful and loving life.

Georgie found the love of his life at the age of 39, his Beautiful “Angel”....Angelika. They became inseparable.

Georgie loved his Music, Sports and Travelling, his favourite place was the “Beach” he enjoyed a very active life style. He always made working out a priority. He became an avid Runner... even running during some treatments...he wanted to insure he stayed healthy so he could take all the treatments to keep fighting!

He loved to cook and bake, he is known for his “Crema Cannoli’s” and fantastic Pizza’s....which were enjoyed by his friends and family and his Doctors happily.

Georgie worked at Canadian Airlines and Air Canada as an Expediter and absolutely loved his job, he was also a highly successful Shop Stuart serving the needs of his co-workers without losing sight of what would make the employer successful. To him that meant longevity and security and no one will ever know how much he did to help facilitate that level of success so that no family would be without a job.

George is survived by his real LIFE Angel, his wife Angelika Scarinci, his mother Giulia (Albert Staniscia), his sister Marianna (Pasco Valana) and Zach and Sabrina his Niece and Nephew.

The Family would like to thank Dr. Chi and his incredible medical team for exhausting every option and extending his life so that he could spend more time with his wife and family.

Service will be held at Ocean View Cemetery Chapel Jan 21, 2019 at 10:00am followed by refreshments at 12:00 with an opportunity to share some stories about Georgie. 4000 Imperial Street Burnaby, BC

In lieu of flowers please make donations in George’s name to the BC Cancer Agency so that we can prevent other families from losing a loved one far too soon.

When I first met George he was a very kind, friendly, and straight forward individual. But as time passed and as I got to know George better, I understood that my first impression of him was only a small look into his actual self. In reality an even stronger soul of an individual was present up until the very moment of his passing.

George's immense strength and perseverance came to prominance the most when he was fighting his battle with cancer, and his resolve and will power to continue exercising almost every day was stunning.

Perhaps the thing I miss about George the most was the way he was able to express his opinion, almost always adding anecdotes that were captivating along the way.

George also taught me how to be a more independent person. One example is him teaching me how to cook his beloved pasta sauce whose smell always reminds me of the Scarinci household.

I will miss him very much and express my deepest condolences to the family.

Even though our adult lives took us on different paths I have always considered George a close friend ... We shared many good times together during the earlier years

George was always a honest loyal/caring friend and will be missed by all his friends and family

My deepest sympathy goes out to Gela , Marianna and Giulia/Albert and family

Warmest condolences to Georgie's and Gela's family and friends.
Georgie, we thank you for the gift of being your neighbors. We loved seeing you and Gela drive by in your car or walk by with your lawnmower, usually stopping for a quick chat. We loved "Little Italy" and all the celebrations with friends under the grapevines. We loved how you sweet you two were together. We enjoyed the figs from your trees, goodies you baked, and coffee from your special machine. We followed or ignored the golf tips before, after, and during the golf games :>). But out of all these, our favorite memory was bringing in 2014 New Year with you and Gela: all in our pajamas, laughing, singing songs and showing off our planks, cracking the bubbly out on the deck, and feeling how blessed we were to have great friends. Here is an unrehearsed impromptu remembrance from that night... your favorite from the evening. Rest in peace til we meet again.
Gela, we have broken hearts for ourselves and for you. God bless and comfort you. Let's stay close.
Lovingly: Michael, Esmie, Daniel, Leanne, and Ed.

My dearest Georgie Porgie,

Ive had the pleasure of working beside your wife for over a decade. Listening to her go on and on AND ON about how amazing you are. Declining most social events as she’d rather spend her time with the love of her life. It was frustrating at times (mostly cuz I was jealous 😊) .. but also amazing. How does one love another THAT immensely for so long. You are her everything. Witnessing a love like yours was incredibly special and I am forever grateful to have had you in my life.
I promise you we will take good care of your angel. And Altho she will never be the same, she will be ok.

‘How lucky am I to have something that makes saying good bye so hard’

You will be missed immeasurably.
All my love,
Mehgan

So sorry for your loss. I worked with George in Stores at Canadian. We were friends. I am so glad he found a beautiful woman to share his life with. I left Canadian 1999 but I will always remember him fondly. He was a quiet person. He was a caring person. I am saddened by his death. Far to soon. Rest in piece George.
