It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Damiano Samir Saleh, who peacefully left us on April 16, 2024, at 7:50 pm.

Damiano was born in the early morning of August 29, 1995, to Lisa Girardi and Samir Saleh in New Westminster. He graduated at the top of his class from New Westminster Secondary School, with the first level of culinary arts already under his belt. This early success was a testament to his talent and passion for cooking, which he went on to share with the world.

Damiano was deeply cherished by his mother, Lisa Girardi, and his little sister, Sophia, along with their beloved pup, Marcia. However, it was his profound connection with his partner, Attiya, of 5 years and their kitty, Wyllow, that held a very special place in his heart.

Please join Attiya, Sophia, and me as we bid farewell to our beloved Damiano at 2:00 pm on Sunday, June 23, 2024 at 911 London Street, New Westminster, B.C. V3M 3B5. You may contact us at The service will be adorned in purple, Damiano's favorite color, as a tribute to his vibrant spirit.
