GUERRA – Aldo

October 10, 1920 – December 3, 2010

Aldo Guerra of Calgary passed away on Friday, December 3, 2010 at the age of 90 years.

Aldo was born in Urbania, Pesaro Italy on October 10, 1920. He immigrated to Canada in 1949 and then returned to Italy and married Elisa Baggiarini on April 14, 1956 at which point they both returned to Canada to start their family. Aldo loved the outdoors especially when it came to hunting and gardening where he devoted much of his time during retirement.  He was a passionate wine maker, buying grapes every September to start a new batch.  Aldo was a dedicated family man and took great pride in raising and providing for his family.  Aldo and Elisa truly enjoyed spending time with their family and Sunday dinners were a weekly must. Aldo and Elisa felt especially blessed to have had two grandchildren, Stephanie and Paul who brought much love, laughter and joy to their lives.  Nonno we will miss you but you will always be in our hearts.

Aldo is survived by two sons and a daughter, Norbert Guerra, Anna Marie (Renato) Colucci and their children Stephanie and Paul, and Walter Guerra (Rosina Tobin and her children, Lindsay, Nicole and Kevin). He was predeceased by his wife of forty-five years, Elisa on April 10, 2002.

Special thanks to the staff at the Edgemont Retirement Centre especially Gabrielle & “Nino” for their friendship towards Aldo, and staff at RGH Unit 93 for their care in his final days.

  3. Sorry to hear about your father Aldo.
    I have many fond memories from days gone by.
    The best was at Anna’s wedding reception and I still hold the vision of Aldo holding a rifle (his weapon of choice) giving Ron fair warning to be good to his girl.
    Couldn’t help but love him.
    We know he is in heaven. He was as much a saint as your mother Elisa.
    Our condolences,
    Ivan, Mona and Sara

  8. Hey Nonno I was watching TV tonight and just was thinking of you. I know you are looking down on us! I will always miss you and even though its been 2 years since your passing I still take it emotionally sometimes. I know you were 90 years old however when someone related to you is not around anymore it leaves an emptiness in the heart that no one can fill. I hope you are with Nonna and keeping her company. I also hope you are with Mark and Christopher my brothers. On your second year anniversary of your passing I went to bed at 11:30 however could not get to sleep because I kept thinking of you. So I went into my moms room and took the DVD video that was showed at your funeral prayers and watched it and enjoyed all the memories I got from spending my life with you. Unfortunately for Nonna it ended shorter then we thought and she never got to see me now that I am 17. However I know you guys look down on us. I hope you guys are watching down on uncle Norbert and uncle Wally and help guiding them and keeping them safe. I love you Nonno and Nonna and Mark and Christopher and not a day passes without me thinking of you guys. You will always be in my heart!
