BASTIANO (FRANK) FRANCO NUCCI Bastiano Franco Nucci, aged 45, of Montreal, died unexpectedly and tragically on November 11, 2005. He was born January 12, 1960, in Winnipeg, Manitoba the son of Emilio and Teresa Nucci. As we bid farewell to the tragic loss of our loved one, let us take a moment to briefly reflect on some sincere memories of our loved one. Bastiano was a smart and sophisticated individual who attended school at St. Paul's High school and then continued his studies at the University of Manitoba for several years. Bastiano worked as a successful entrepreneur for several years. He enjoyed the company of his family and close friends. He will be fondly remembered for his kind heart. He had the gift of making people laugh. He was a man who coveted a hidden charitable nature and was known to lend a helping hand to those who may have been in need. Bastiano spent the latter part of his life living in Montreal with his life partner Nathalie Levesque however Winnipeg was really home for him. He was well known and respected by those who knew him well. The announcement of his untimely death is an occasion of sincere sorrow and as we mourn the loss of our loved one Bastiano, he leaves the scenes of our earth respected by those who knew and loved him. Bastiano is survived by, life partner Nathalie Levesque; his parents, Emilio and Teresa Nucci; brothers, Mario and Paul Nucci; Maria Albi (Mama Maria) Nonna, his nephew Michael Nucci and his mother Michelle Young; aunt and uncle Gino and Rosetta Nucci; mother and father-in-law Claire and Bertrand Levesque; sister and brother-in-law Lyne and Richard Aubut, and their son Kevin, Daniel Levesque, and his children Roxanne and Dany; sister-in-law Carolle Kaske, and her husband Wolfgang Kaske; special friend Jared Devloo (Junior), as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that he loved very much.
