It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Luigi on Friday, December 18, 2020 at the age of 91. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family.
Born November 8, 1929 in San Giovanni in Fiore, Italy, where he lived with his mother, father and siblings. In 1955 he met Emma, and a year later they were married, and went on to have 3 daughters.
In 1960, Luigi immigrated to Canada, and shortly after, his wife and daughters joined him to build a new life. Luigi and Emma raised their family in Northwest Calgary.
He worked at ATCO and retired after 35 years. He enjoyed many hours tending to his beautiful backyard which he was very proud of. He spent his time making wine, watching soccer and playing bocce. He was his grandchildren’s biggest fan when attending all their activities. His family was his greatest joy and he was happiest when surrounded by them.
Luigi was a caring and loving man with a beautiful smile throughout his life. Alzheimers is neither fair nor kind, but that did not change him from being the sweet and humble man that he was.
Luigi was predeceased by his parents, Constantino and Rosa Laratta, Siblings, Frank, Battista and Caterina. He is survived by his wife Emma, daughters; Rose (Orazio), Silvana (Barry) and Eleonora (Barry), and grandchildren; Kenny, Aurelia, Mia, Mark, Matthew, and Emily.
He will be greatly missed and in our hearts, forever.
A Viewing will take place at Evan J Strong Funeral Services on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 from 5:00-7:00 pm.
