Luigi Di Benedetto was one of the early pioneers of immigrant families to settle in Prince George in 1952. Originally living in the Cottonwood Island Community, like many new Canadians of that generation.

In 1964 the family moved to Spruceland subdivision and this where he lived until his passing. Luigi came to Canada as highly skilled master craftsman & wood worker. He spent his working years as a cabinet maker & residential home finisher with Thompson Construction and Woodland Sash & Door. His work was greatly admired & sought after by many people in the Prince George community that knew him.

He completed many home renovations & kitchen cabinets upgrades for so many friends throughout his working years. He was known affectionately as “Mastro Luigi”

He lived a long enriched life, with a loving wife, family, grandchildren & great grandchildren and many friends. As patriarch of the family, he will be greatly missed.
