FRANCESCO CARDAMONE It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Francesco Cardamone at the age of 82 years. Francesco was predeceased by his loving wife Maria; parents, Maria and Pietro; mother-in-law and father-in-law Filomena and Pietro Vergata; brothers, Raffaele and Antonio and sister Caterina; and brothers-in-law, Adolf, Renzo and Giuseppe. He will be remembered by his children, Peter (Debbie), Marisa (Joe) and Tony (Corinna); and grandchildren, Michael, Stephanie, Nicholas, Aaron, Furrio and Adriana. He will also be remembered by his sister Teresa; brother Giuseppe (Rosarina); sisters-in-law, Caterina, Lucia and Rosina; and brother-in-law Francesco (Caterina); as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Francesco was born in Amato, Catanzaro. He worked in Italy and Germany before marrying his wife Maria in Settingiano in 1962. In 1968, he and Maria immigrated to Canada with their two children, Marisa and Peter. Once they had settled in Winnipeg, Francesco and Maria welcomed their third child, Tony. Francesco began his career in construction and eventually retired from Motor Coach Industries. After he retired, he spent his days working in his garden and enjoying time with his family and friends. His passions were his garden, cooking and his family. He was especially proud of his grandchildren who were the joy of his life. His kindness, smile and generosity will be missed by all who knew him.

  • What a very special man Compari Francisco was. I'm pretty certain he didn't know what an impact he had on so many people. His kindness and love will never be forgotten. I will never forget the times we would visit him and Comari Maria and he would show us his lush, amazing garden that he was very proud of. You would never leave without him putting on a huge spread of food that was all homemade and simple amazing. Compari we thank you for being you. May you Rest In Peace, we love you, and we will never forget you. Love Mario and Maria - Posted by: Mario & Maria Donato (Cousins) on: Jul 22, 2017
