SGAGGI, Giacinto “Nino”

July 8, 1933 – Urbino, Italy
June 30, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

Nino Sgaggi, beloved husband of Rita Sgaggi of Calgary, passed away on Monday, June 30, 2014 at the age of 80 years.

Nino was born in Urbino, Italy on July 8, 1933. He followed his friend and brother Frank Sgaggi to Canada in 1958. Nino married his beloved Rita, wife and best friend on December 5, 1959. Nino worked as a carpenter during the 60’s building many homes in Calgary, which he proudly spoke of. He started with the City of Calgary in 1980, and he retired in 1997.

Nino loved spending time with his family; his pride and joy were his grandchildren and Nonno Nino cherished the time he shared with them. Nino loved to fish and camp with Rita, and like many proud Italians, Nino loved to make wine which he used to toast to his friends and family.

Besides his loving wife Rita, Nino is survived by their children Laura (Wilf), Ivano (Silvia), and Dorina (Sean); grandchildren Lucas, Christina, Michael and Matthew; sister Vittoria of Italy as well as many numerous nieces and nephews in Canada, Italy and France. He was predeceased by his daughter and little angel Maria in 1962, and recently his brother Frank and sister-in-law Maria Sgaggi.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael Catholic Community Church (800 – 85 Street S.W.) on Monday, July 7, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Mausoleum. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
