Emidio (Micky) Mettimano, beloved husband of Edda of Calgary, passed away on Monday, November 15, 2010 at the age of 80 years.
His strength and determination was an inspiration to everyone who knew him. Micky was born in Cerreto, Teramo, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1952 where he worked for CP Rail. The duration of his career was spent with Crisanti Bros. until his retirement.

He is also survived by his brothers, Francesco (Adalgisa), Mario, Silvio (Linda), and Claudio (Verla), and numerous nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law, and sisters-in-law.
