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.
