It is with deep sorrow that the family of Aldo Barbuto announce his passing on Sunday, May 14, 2006 following a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 57 years.
Aldo was a very passionate person with a zest for life. He was a traveler, a poet, a talented chef, and a caring educator. He was an intellectual with an appreciation for the arts, history and music and his knowledge and love of good food and wine enhanced every gathering of family and friends. He touched the lives of many, and will be remembered for his dedication, integrity, quick wit and energetic spirit.

He is also survived by many nieces and nephews and their families, and numerous relatives and friends.
