It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved uncle Felice Riccio of Calgary, on Thursday, January 8, 2015 at the age of 86 years.
Felice was born September 15, 1928 in Casaferro, Marigliano in the Province of Naples, Italy. He immigrated to Canada in December of 1954, arriving in Halifax before making his way to Calgary, where his brother and sister-in-law, Luigi and Felicetta were awaiting his arrival. Felice was a Foreman with Asti Concrete and Construction Ltd. until his retirement in 1989. He loved to celebrate life and his biggest joys were his family, travelling, and wine season. Felice had a great passion for cooking and loved to entertain people.
