LUCENTE, Salvatore

April 2, 1930 – November 26, 2011

Salvatore Lucente, beloved husband, father and grandfather, passed away on Saturday, November 26, 2011, after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 81 years.

Salvatore was born on April 2, 1930, in San Giovanni in Fiore, Cosenza, Italy. He immigrated to Calgary in 1957. He worked diligently all his life to make a better future for his family, retiring only when he was no longer physically able. His life was dedicated to his family and he will be deeply missed by all who loved him. The legacy he leaves us is one of love and dedication to his family; of strength and integrity, of never abandoning your dreams no matter the obstacles. His greatest living legacies are his grandchildren who were the pride and joy of his life.

He will be remembered for his faithful devotion to his wife of fifty-two years, Teresa; his four sons, Francesco (Olimpia), Giuseppe (Maria Grazia), Mario (Dorothy), Carlo (Xhilda); and grandchildren Salvatore, Lydia, DaSanto, Armando and Cassandra. He also leaves behind sisters Filomena, Clara, Antonia, Rosa, Vittoria; brother-in-law Giovanni Straface (Rosa); and countless beloved nieces, nephews and extended family and friends, both here and in Italy.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael Catholic Community Church (800 – 85 Street S.W.) on Friday, December 2, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Mausoleum. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    My dearest friends, Francesco, Olimpia, Sam, Lydia, Teresa and family:

    I am very sad to hear the news of Dad’s death. He was a very lovely man, full of life, hard work and love for each of his dear ones. There are hardly words of expression that could encompass the tenderness of this moment for each of you.

    Please know how much our Father God loves each of you, holding you warmly in His hands. He saves every tear. You are safe there. With much love and prayers for your comfort and peace, Boo – xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo.

    Loosing Daddy is a terrible experience in a man’s life: the man who showed you the way to understand the world now has gone, but wil be forever alive in our hearts. Teresa deserves special mention, since after a long life together with Sam now she is back single but is not alone: the sons and the grand-sons will always recall her that we all are a part of the circle of life…

    Bye bye Uncle Sam

    “Sol chi non lascia eredità d’affetti
    poca gioia ha dell’urna: e se pur mira
    dopo l’esequie, errar vede il suo spirto
    fra’ l compianto de’ templi Acherontei,
    o ricovrarsi sotto le grandi ale
    del perdono d’Iddio: ma la sua polve
    lascia alle ortiche di deserta gleba
    ove nè donna innamorata preghi,
    nè passeggier solingo oda il sospiro
    che dal tumulo a noi manda Natura.”
    (Ugo Foscolo – I Spolcri)
