It is with great sorrow we announce the sudden passing of Giacomo (Jack) Castiello, beloved husband, father, and friend on Friday, October 29, 2004.
He is lovingly remembered by his wife Josephine and two sons, Peter and Daniel as well as numerous family and friends. Jack was born November 28, 1949 in Brusciano, Italy and at the age of 25 immigrated to Calgary where he met and married his wife on May 10, 1975. Jack enjoyed working in construction and did so until his illness with Parkinson’s which made it difficult to continue, but that did not stop him from remaining active. He had a passion for animals and loved gardening especially his prized tomato plants. The family wishes to thank Dr. O. Suchowersky and staff at the neuroscience clinic as well as the many staff and residents at the fanning centre where he was a resident for the past three years.
