It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our father Domenico Stambene on Saturday, November 7, 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 76 years.
Domenico passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family. He immigrated to Canada in 1956 to begin his new journey in life. Dad had a love for fishing, gardening and was meticulous with his vehicles. Dad was very proud of his children and grandchildren, he was always there to watch them in their many activities, providing support and encouragement. He was a dedicated, hardworking husband, father, grandfather, and friend.
Predeceased by his wife, Isabella in 1994, Domenico leaves behind to mourn, his children, Joe (Janis), John(Anna) and Angela (Andre) Guzzardi. He also leaves behind his cherished grandchildren, Carson, Tyler, Julian, Anisse, and Jenna.
