GRECO, Pasquale (Pete)

September 9, 1926 – September 25, 2011

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Pasquale, husband, father and grandfather. Pasquale, loving husband of Maria Greco of Calgary, passed away surrounded by his devoted family on Sunday, September 25, 2011 at the age of 85 years.

Pasquale is survived by his wife of sixty-three years Maria; sons, Joe (Nina), Frank (Susie), John (Ines); and daughter Teresa (Lorenzo Santillo); son-in-law John Durante; seventeen grandchildren; a sister Filomena Nicastro; and numerous nieces and nephews. Pasquale was predeceased by his daughter Virginia (2005); son Tony (2008); his sisters Virginia, Maria and brother Francesco.

Pasquale was born in San Giovanni in Fiore, Italy on September 9, 1926. He was born to Teresa Mosca and Giuseppe Greco. He immigrated to Canada in 1952 at the young age of twenty-five. Pasquale’s passions in life were his family and his business. He loved to spend his time at family gatherings, playfully teasing his grandchildren. In his retirement years he passed his time in his greenhouse and garden. He loved to travel to British Columbia where he could spend more time with his family.

    The Greco Family:
    Our sincere condolences on the passing of Pete. We did not have the privilege of knowing him very well, but when we first moved into Varsity four years ago he was among the first of our new neighbours to greet us. Over those few years we enjoyed numerous chats ‘over the fence’. We will miss him

    Quando una persona ci lascia, quando non è più qui e non possiamo più toccarla , o sentire la sua voce… sembra scomparsa per sempre. Ma un affetto sincero non morirà mai. Il ricordo delle persone che ci sono state care vivrà per sempre nei nostri cuori, più forte di qualsiasi abbraccio e più importante di qualsiasi parola.
    – Non abbiamo la presunzione di dire che capiamo il vostro dolore. Ma vogliamo esservi vicini, per offrirvi tutta la nostra disponibilità, il nostro conforto ed il nostro affetto.virginia saverio giovanni giuseppe luigi belcastro giovanni audia
