FIGLIOMENI – Joseph “Joey”

January 26, 1990 – November 7, 2010

Joseph “Joey” Figliomeni, beloved fiancé of Ossan Arakelian of Calgary, passed away Sunday, November 7, 2010 at the age of 20 years.

Born in Calgary, Joey was a chubby baby full of contagious smiles and energy. His love of making people laugh made him a natural when it came to indulging in one of his favourite pastimes – illusions and magic. He graduated from St. Francis High School and his creativity led him to pursue studies at SAIT in New Media Design. He became an expert in 3D design and went onto the University of Calgary to work on a degree in Communications. Joey worked for Dirtt Environmental Solutions as their resident Media Design Nerd, where he did incredible design work and pulled shenanigans you would not believe! He was also a certified scuba diver, loved travelling (but hated getting there), loved pasta like mad and adored his fiancée Ossan. He also played drums and dabbled in guitar when the need to rock out came around.

Joey is survived by his parents Anna and Frank; sister Sabrina; so many friends you’d be here forever if you counted them all; and the love of his life, his Ossan.

Joey, we’ll miss you bud.
Keep drumming, keep smiling, we’ll never forget you.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church (640 – 19th Avenue N.W.) on Tuesday, November 9, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church (640 – 19th Avenue N.W.) on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. Private Family Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Mausoleum. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. To see some of Joseph’s amazing work, check out his website at www.sublimefx.ca.

    I am still in shock- hoping that this is just a bad dream: I am so very sorry
    for your loss. I am trying to find the
    right words to express what is going through my mind as I am writing this and I cannot find them:
    Joey was an amazing
    person who made an impact on the lives
    of the people he met and I know that
    he absolutely adored Ossan. It was a pleasure to have known him. He will be
    missed. I am so very sorry.

    From the moment I heard about Joey’s passing I have felt a weight in my chest. I am Vittorio’s (Vito) mother and had the pleasure of sitting with Joey and Ossana at their High School Prom.I remember seeing Joey on campus at SAIT from time to time knowing how creative he was and wondering what he was working on. My deepest condolences to the whole family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May Joey rest in peace.

    It’s shocking to know that you have passed away. You were the most talented and funniest guy I’ve ever known, and a great friend who has taught me a lot about life in high school. We’ve both had great memories with each other when it came to decorating for Halloween, filming school projects or just hanging out and cooking lots of pasta. I wish the best for your family and Ossan to live through these hard times and my thoughts and prayers will forever be with you and your family. Rest in peace Joey, you will forever be missed.

    – Mike

    I can’t imagine the pain you must be going through. I didn’t know Joey well but the times I did talk to him I was so impressed by what a very fine young man he was. My prayers are with you and your family at this time. May God sustain you through this dark time.
