November 5, 1928 – October 24, 2011
Cesare Romano beloved husband, father and nonno passed away on Monday, October 24, 2011 at the age of 82 years.
Cesare was born on November 5, 1928 in San Giovanni in Fiore, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1958 to marry his true love. He worked in construction and later became co-owner of The National Hotel. He loved working in the garden, camping and fishing with friends and family and was always there offering his help and making us laugh.
He leaves behind Rosa, his wife of 53 years and sons Joseph (Rina), Frank, Tony (Donna) and grandchildren Cesare, Giovanna (Graham), Nicola and Kira. He is also survived by two sisters Maria and Lina (Giovanni and niece Rosa) and brother Nicola in San Giovanni in Fiore, Italy. He is also survived by sisters-in-law and a brother-in-law and numerous nieces and nephews in Calgary and Italy. His grandchildren Cesare and Giovanna were the light of his life and then he was blessed again later in life with granddaughters Nicola and Kira which rekindled his joy of being young.
