October 11, 2013 – Calgary, Alberta
Giuseppe “Joe” Vittore Faoro was born on August 19, 1963 in Calgary, AB and passed away at Foothills hospital on October 11, 2013, at the age of 50.
He was pre-deceased by his father Vittore Faoro in 1977 and mother Vittorina Faoro (nee Bellegante) in 2013. Joe will be held in loving memory by his daughter Deneuve Faoro, the Oicle Family, relatives, friends & Chiko. Joe spent a large portion on his life living out on the family acreage, where he developed his love for animals and the outdoors. He was an employee with CP Rail, and truly enjoyed his job. Working with CP Rail allowed him to be in his element, being able to travel Alberta & BC, working in the outdoors and seeing all of the wildlife. He was always calling Deneuve to tell her about all of the different animals he had seen and all the beautiful areas he had visited. During the summer seasons you could catch him on the patio barbequing or playing with Chiko (Deneuve’s dog). Joe & Chiko were the best of friends; he sure did love that dog. During the winter seasons you could catch him up in the mountains skiing. He would always say that “he was still faster than everyone on the hill”. When he wasn’t on the hills you could always hear him from the basement cheering on his favourite hockey team- Toronto Maple Leafs. Last year Joe & Deneuve took a trip to Italy to visit their family. That was by far the best trip of his life, and hers, he spoke about it all the time. Deneuve will cherish those memories forever. Joe was a simple man, but he loved and he felt deeply. He lived life for everyday and always had a smile on his face. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten. May you rest in peace Dad.
