IAFOLLA – Ottavio Paolino

March 5,1920 – June 27, 2011

Iafolla Ottavio was born in Villalago (l’Aquila) Italy on March 5, 1920 from Iafolla Domenico (1886) and Anna Gatta (1889). After apprenticing as a woodjoiner in his youth, Ottavio fought in WWII. After the war, he worked as a labourer in the construction industry and did odd jobs in wood working. In 1970, Ottavio moved to Calgary where he worked in light assembly (Alsco & Carlton, Revelstoke and Lenny Sign Co.). He retired in 1986 at the age of 66 years, and enjoyed a long and quiet retirement.
