December 6, 1928 - August 9, 2019

It is with profound sadness and very heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our dear husband, father and grandfather at the age of 90.
He was born on December 6, 1928 in San Roberto, Reggio Calabria, Italy.
Francesco leaves to mourn his beloved wife of 60 years, Maria Angela (nee Bueti), his sons, Giuseppe (Kathy) and Vincenzo (Noula); grandchildren, Ria (Justin), Samantha, Gina, Daniella and Alaina; sisters-in-law, Grazia Spezzano (Antonino), Antonietta and Gail Bueti along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends in both Canada and Italy.
Francesco was predeceased by his parents, Giuseppe and Maria Licandro; his brothers and sisters, Maria (Giorgio), Antonio (Filomena), Enza (Giovanni), Mimma (Giuseppe), Dominico (Carmela) and Giuseppe; father and mother-in-law, Vincenzo and Caterina Bueti; brothers-in-law, Giuseppe Bueti (Giuseppina), Diego Bueti, Rocco Bueti and sister-in-law Filomena (Francesco) Bova.
Our Papa was a strong and humble man who never looked for praise. His wants were very few. He was one of our greatest blessings. The world has become a duller place without the man we called Nonno and Pops. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has come to comfort us at this time of great sorrow and need.
Mass of the Resurrection will be held Tuesday, August 20, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at the Holy Rosary Church, 510 River Ave., Winnipeg, MB. Condolences at 10:00 a.m. Entombment to follow.
In lieu of flowers we ask that you spend quality time with your loved ones or make a donation to your favourite charity.

  • Our most sincere condolences to you Vince, Noula, Ria and Gina on the loss of someone dear and special in your father. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Xo - Posted by: Paul and Yolande Franzmann (Vince and Noula’s friends) on: Aug 18, 2019

  • To Maria, Joe (Kathy), Vince (my sister and brother in-law) and all the kids in our family, My heart is filled with sadness for the loss of your sweet father Frank (or Nono) as we all used to refer to him. I wish I could be there with you all and give you all a hug. I hold each memory we all have shared together with Frank (Nono) so close in my heart. We had so many beautiful moments in our family and we will continue to honor Frank (Nono) and continue to celebrate him by remaining close and by honouring eachother. For us he was extra special because he was the only Nono Isabella had come to know, thank you. I will always remember Frank as a quiet, loving and humble man who was always present in our family, always kind and soft-spoken in our family gatherings with a beautiful smile and the darkest ran. We will continue to love him eternally and remember his beautiful soul. My best memory of Nono (together with Nona) was last year when Justin and Ria went to Italy and we did a Facetime all together ❤️. At the time, I hadn’t seen Nono and Nona for years and for me it was so beautiful and gave me so much joy to see their faces. There are so many beautiful memories to remember, hold and cherish. RIP Frank, we will always love and remember and honor you. - Posted by: Dimitra (Mimi) Sialaris (Family-in-law) on: Aug 17, 2019
