August 8, 1956 – January 26, 2013
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of a wonderful husband, father, brother, uncle and friend.
Born in Teramo, Italy, Enzo immigrated to Canada in 1967. He was known for his love of fly fishing, golf, baseball, woodworking, auctions and entertaining. Enzo loved to entertain with his cooking and his off-beat sense of humour. He spent his life gathering many, many friends. He dedicated thirty years of his life to the career he loved at Evans Consoles.
Enzo is survived by Brenda, his devoted wife of nineteen years; and his beautiful and adored children, Lia and Gino. Enzo is also survived by his sisters, Miriam (Kevin) and Toni (Terry); his brother Max; and his extended Dean and Iervella families; along with all his nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and his godchildren, all of whom were very special to him.
Enzo was predeceased by his parents Ottorino and Lidia; and Zia Maria Benincasa.
