Romano, Marcello Domenico
In Loving Memory
It is with great sadness that we share the new of the passing of our beloved father and Nono. Marcello Domenico Romano, Dec 21, 1926 – Feb 11, 2016. He passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 89.
He came from Villaorba, Italy in 1951. He settled in Natal, BC. He was joined by his fiancée Santina a few years later. They married and raised their family there. He worked underground in the Coal Mines for over 40 years.
In his spare time he loved to hunt, fish, and spend time at his cabin. His other great passion was gardening. He spent hours upon hours tending to his plants, trees and grass. He won many of the municipal awards for Best Garden & Lawn.
He moved to Squamish with his wife at his side in 2008, so that they could be closer to their family. This was a new chapter in their lives. They enjoyed being surrounded by their family. It was at this time that he developed a passion for chicken wings at the local pub, never missing an opportunity to go for some beer and wings.
His smile and laugh will be greatly missed. Those who knew him, loved him, and knew that they were loved in return. He was a true gentleman. A gentle giant that was so caring and kind. He had a heart of gold. His memories will be forever cherished and his loved never forgotten.
Waiting for him on the other side are his beautiful wife of over 60 years and his son Lodovico.
He is survived by his daughter Lodi (Stephen), son Michael (Brenda), and all his beloved grandchildren, Melissa (Denton), Kyle (Emily), Riley, Cole, Jocelyn (Keegan), Courtney (Chris), and Morgan (Sarah). His great grandchildren, Spencer, Carter, Bryne and Sawyer. His loving nieces and nephews, brother in law and cousins. His beautiful Wendy & Colleen and all his friends in Sparwood. Not to be forgotten are his 2 pals, Trudo (Turtle) and Kenyah.
We would like to thank all the amazing Nurses & Doctors at the SGH for all their incredible care, and support. Special thanks to Dr. Tavares for all your care over the years.
