OBITUARY

Francesco Alberto Meyer

January 1, 1934February 4, 2020

Francesco Alberto Meyer, age 86, peacefully left us on February 4, 2020, with family by his side, following a brief illness at Chilliwack General Hospital. We rejoice that he will at long last be reunited with his beloved wife of 41 years, Anna, deceased on September 25, 2001.

Francesco was born on January 1st, 1934, in Carrara Italy, to parents Jenny and Saverio. He immigrated to Canada in 1955, and married Anna Albina Dell'Amico in 1960 at St Anthony’s Church in Agassiz. They lived in Toronto, and later settled in Agassiz, where they continued to raise their 5 children. Francesco worked for many years at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort Hotel, until his retirement.

Francesco's interests included first and foremost his family. Anyone who knew him knew that he was a family man - providing for and protecting his family was the most important thing to him. His loyalty and support to his family was great, and he could always be counted on for help and wisdom, at any time. Francesco enjoyed gardening, gourmet foods, and classical music; he had a great love of the Opera. He spoke 5 languages, had a quick wit, a great sense of humour, and would never fail to make people laugh; his smile and charm will be greatly missed.

Francesco was at peace in his final days and was not afraid to let go. We are in awe of his immense strength and courage in the face of death.

Francesco is survived by his 5 children - Jenny, Laura, Francesca, Saverio and Ann, as well as his 10 grandchildren. His legacy will live on through the wonderful memories shared by his family.

Rest in eternal peace Dad - we love you and will miss you always. Until we meet again.
