PAIARO, Giovanni

January 4, 1924 – June 5, 2012

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Giovanni Paiaro at the Beverly Care Centre Midnapore on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at the age of 88 years.

Giovanni spent his 88 years loving life and the times spent with his family. Born in Campagna, Italy on January 4, 1924, he came to Canada in 1955 to work with the railroad in Pasqua, Saskatchewan. Bruna and his sons joined him there in 1957 and soon after they moved to Moose Jaw. Over the years, other family from Italy joined them in Moose Jaw and he and Bruna returned to Italy several times to visit. In 1968, Giovanni and his family relocated to Calgary and called it home. Whether it was fishing with his grandsons, keeping his garden immaculate, making wine, or spending time with family and friends, Giovanni was involved. His generous spirit, friendly nature, and warm smile will be missed by everyone.

He will be sadly missed by his family; his sons Louis (Donna) and John (Kim); his grandchildren, Kevin (Audra), Sergio (Katelyn), and Alysha; and his great-granddaughter, Breanne. He was predeceased by his wife, Bruna, in 2006, and grandson, Christopher, in 2000.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Sunday, June 10, 2012 at 8:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Grace Italian and English Catholic Church (1714 – 14th Avenue N.E.) on Monday, June 11, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. Forward condolences through A special thanks to the members of Giovanni’s care team at Somerset, Beverley Care Centre, Midnapore.

In living memory of Giovanni Paiaro, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.
