FAORO, Giuseppe “Joe”

August 19, 1963 – Calgary, Alberta
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.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Mary, Mother of the Redeemer Parish (formerly Our Lady of Grace Italian and English Catholic Church) (1714 – 14 Avenue N.E.) on Friday, October 18, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    Joe… Zio will always be remembered as a loving, kind and generous man to me; he treated me as a daughter. He will also be remembered and his soul will always live on. Deneuve and Family, remember the good times you’ve had with Dad; allow him live on through the memories, special events and family time you all shared together. Every time you think about him, remember that it’s like an instant text to him to let him know he’s on your mind. He will always be right beside you, cheering you on throughout your life. He was so proud of you Deneuve and he always will be bella. Zio, remember to say hi to everyone ‘upstairs’ for me xoxo Always and Forever in my heart!

    I am truly sorry to hear about the passing of Giuseppe:( My deepest condolences go out to all the family.. I grew up knowing and spending a lot of time with Giuseppe especially when I was young and I always had great memories of him and really liked him. I would like to give a special condolence to Deneuve, I really feel for you as I lost my Dad 16 months ago today and I cant imagine losing both parents in the same year:( All I can say is that time slowly heals but never replaces. Try to live your life the best you can with what you have and one day we will all be together again. I unfortunately am very upset and can not be at the funeral as I am out of the Province for the next week:( My Mom and Sister will pay my respects for me and if you need anything Deneuve I am only a phone call or email away.. God bless all you guys in this time of sorrow..

    Words cannot express the sadness we feel for you. We are deeply saddened by the sudden death of our cousin Joe and are thinking of you during these difficult times. Your family is surrounded by the love of many, including our family and many relatives from Belluno, Italy who have expressed their deepest condolences. We will miss his smile, laughter and jokes. We remember him being so happy to share the highlights of his last visit to Italy; visiting cousins, aunts & uncles, the homes that his parents grew up in and walking the trail that his dad walked while courting his mom. Special times such as these were never forgotten by Joe as he felt so connected with memories and stories from the ‘old country’. Joe and Zia will never be forgotten by us. They hold a special place in our hearts alongside our dad. Remember that we are here for you.

  9. Ciao ,”my favourite cousin” così mi definivi e allo stesso modo io ti rispondevo, non riesco a rassegnarmi che tu te ne sia andato. So che era durissima la vita per te in questi mesi da quando la tua amata mamma ci aveva lasciato, ma pensavo che forse, piano piano ,tu ce l’avresti fatta a superare questo momento, per te, difficilissimo. Purtroppo non è andata così, la tua grande sensibilità ti ha spaccato il cuore e invece di tornare a trovarci in Italia, come promesso, sei andato a raggingere la tua insostituibile mamma

    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Deneuve, your dad loved you incredibly. He was so very proud of you and talked of you often. He had an unwavering loyalty and love for his family. Joe also had an incredible spirit and sense of humour–and could always make us laugh. His passing leaves a hole in our hearts. He will be missed.

    I wanted to write to add my condolences Deneuve. I was shocked and saddened by news of your Dad’s passing. He was fiercely proud of you and his Italian heritage, and also a loyal and supportive friend of mine from the time we met as students at SAIT in the late 1990s.

    I remember meeting you for the first time at Canada Olympic Park some years ago when you were taking snowboarding lessons there. I can’t remember if your Dad was also snowboarding that day, or was skiing. I was fortunate to get out skiing with him there and in the mountains over the years. He skied like he lived his life, on his own terms and he did indeed live “life for everyday and always had a smile on his face” and he also brought joy to those around him. One of my favourite things about your Dad was how much he cared about, and was loyal to, those close to him. He was a good man.

    His spirit and love of life will be missed by all who knew him. He was in his element when in the outdoors and, as you’ve mentioned, his job at CP Rail was one he loved because he was out in nature. His last texts to me were about Elk in Field, BC, the beauty of Lake Louise, and the Hot Springs in Banff, AB.

    He was very much a character and I got a kick out of his “Giuseppe from Canada” stories from your trip to Italy. There’s probably never been a bigger fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, and he’ll be on my mind as I go see them play the Calgary Flames tonight. GO LEAFS GO!

    His death has left a hole in my heart, and a lump in my throat. I miss him.
