September 20, 1948 - September 4, 2020

On Friday, September 4, 2020, with his family by his side, Mario Amatuzio passed away peacefully at the age of 71 at Riverview Health Centre.
Loving father, husband, brother, uncle, son, and friend, Mario will be missed by those who knew him. Predeceased by his mother Lucia in 1990 and father Salvatore ("Sam") in 2006, Mario is survived by his brother Domenic; former wife Susan; daughters, Nicole (Andrew) and Civita; and niece Jordan.
Mario was born in Bojano, Italy, and immigrated to Canada in 1952. Mario worked for Winnipeg Transit for 33 years and retired earlier this year. He will be remembered as a man of honesty and integrity, a hard worker, and a loving friend.
Family wish to extend a special thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff at Riverview who were by Mario's side in his final months.
The family will host a Celebration of Life next year on September 4, 2021. Details to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mario's name to Wing 3 East of the Palliative Care Unit at Riverview Health Centre, 1 Morley Avenue, Winnipeg MB, R3L 2P4, (204) 478-6136.

I will dearly miss the small chats we had and the ever ready smile he always had on his face. Dormi nella pace del signore, mio amico. Rest in Peace, my friend.
