POLLERA, Agostino “Tino”

June 26, 1976 – Calgary, Alberta
July 9, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with a heavy heart to announce the passing of Agostino (Tino) Pollera at the age of 41 on Sunday, July 9th. 2017.

He was born on June 26th, 1976 in Calgary, Alberta and was raised in the community of Bridgeland. From the age of three, he had a pair of hockey skates attached to his feet. He played competitive hockey all through his younger years with an invite to the Brandon Wheatkings. At the age of 20, he went to work for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line as a DJ, where he met his loving wife Stacy. They had the great opportunity to travel the Caribbean before settling here in Calgary. Tino’s love and intense passion for sports influenced his son’s competitive drive and desire to succeed. Tino was an avid outdoorsman who loved spending his free time fly fishing, golfing and camping and was enthusiastic to share his talents with his sons.

He will forever be loved and remembered by his wife Stacy and his legacy will live on through his three sons Michael, Anthony and Nicola. Beloved son of Pasquale and Linda, brother of Lisa (Augusto). He was adored by his Nannu Nicola and Oma Ida, Nannu Agostino and Nanna Mariarosa. Loving nephew of Ilda (Pino) and his Aunt in Italy, Mariangela (Lino) and Uncle Antonio (Annamaria).

American in-laws Ellen, Stan, brother-in-law Nick (Maria) and three loving nieces, Alexia, Mya and Alina. He was predeceased by Oma Ida, Nannu Agostino, Nanna Mariarosa, Uncle Antonio & Annamaria.

There are no words to express how extremely grateful Stacy, Michael, Anthony and Nico are for all the love and support from their Foothills Soccer family.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church (640 – 19th Avenue N.W.) on Friday, July 21, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.(Please note the change of time from the previous time of 11:00 a.m.) Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park.
