SPOLETINI, Ernesto

November 23, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ernesto Spoletini on Sunday, November 23, 2014 at the age of 86 years.

Ernesto was born in Fossacesia, Provincia di Chiete, Abruzzo, Italy on March 31, 1928. Ernesto married his wife of sixty-two years, Anna, on August 1, 1952 and so began their journey of a new life in Canada. Anna emigrated from Italy in 1952 and Ernesto joined her in 1953 to ensure their new family a better future. Ernesto worked with the City of Calgary for thirty-five years for which he received a Distinguished Service Award. The rest of his time he dedicated to his family. Together they made so many wonderful memories. Ernesto found his greatest joy in his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Ernesto is survived by his loving wife Anna; his sons, John (Marianne) and Tom (Marianne); his grandchildren, Mark (Laura), Kevin, Steven, Thomas, and Stefanna; his great-grandchildren, Bianca and Massimo; his brother Tonino; nephew and niece Giovanni and Aurora Spoletini; brothers and sisters-in-law, Angela Spoletini, Loretta and Secondo, Ferronato and Paolina Paolucci; and many nephews, nieces and cousins.

Our family like yours came to this country with a dream and it is our parents who lived thru much more difficult times than we have that give us the fortitude to fulfill our dreams.
    As these special people move on to what these days may be a better place we remember them and what they have done for us to give us so many oppurtunities.
    Take comfort in a full life lived and so many dreams realised.
