May 14, 1951 - November 12, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce Armando's sudden passing at 70 years young.
Left to mourn are his beloved wife Sylvia, his five sons, Darryl, Armando, Matthew, Michael and Christian and their partners; his five siblings, Teresa, Josie, Laura, Bob and Rita and their families; nieces and their families as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Armando recently retired from Winnipeg Transit. Over his life he was very active in the scuba diving community. As a Master Instructor Trainer, he taught hundreds of students over the course of 30 years. He loved to cook and garden and was an accomplished mechanic and autobody technician. Some of Armando's favourite times were spent at West Hawk Lake driving his red Zodiac and his most cherished times were spent with family and friends. His most notable habit was singing Christmas carols throughout the year.
We ask that the family's privacy be respected. A private funeral will be streamed on Saturday, November 27 at and a Celebration of Life will follow in 2022 in which all will be welcome.

  • We are neighbors of Armando and Sylvia. I spoke with Armando a few times when he would stop by to chat with my husband Tony. What a great, funny guy he was. I would stay around a few minutes while they chatted but realized that the conversation was headed to a much longer chat then I could stick around for. I would hear them talking for hours in the yard. The laughter between the two of them was infectious. Words can't express how saddened we are to hear of Armando's passing. My husband Tony is crushed over the loss of our great neighbor. Sylvia, please know we are here for you if you ever need anything. Our condolences to you and your family at this sad time. - Posted by: Dueck Family (Neighbor) on: Nov 23, 2021

  • Rest in peace cuz! I love how you always greeted me in that way, even if we hadn't see each other in a very long time! It always grounded me and took me right back to our childhood roots.

  • I would like to extend my Condolences to the Brambilla Family. Armando was a very Respectable Human being. There were a group of us that hang together in the early 70s and went to West Hawk Lake in those summers. I always remembered Armando throughout the years. God Bless my Friend.
