Mario Domenico Petrossi, age 84, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, July 7, 2019. Mario was born in Ramandolo, Udine, Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1954.
Mario always had a strong work ethic and worked in several trades including farming and the pasta business. Mario was always dedicated to his work and enjoyed simple pleasures such as gardening, wine making, trips to Mexico and camping; most of all he had a great love of music. Mario especially loved being with his friends, family and grandchildren.
Mario was always deeply loved by all and will be sorely missed. Mario is survived by his best friend and loving wife Rina, step sons Aldo (Laurie) and Steven (Nancy); 5 grandchildren (Natasha, Robert, Bradley, Andrew and Lauren); brother-in-law Vittorio (Bianca); sister-in-law Livia (Graham); sister Bruna; and sister-in-law Maria; and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Dr. Harjee, Dr. Telio and all of the doctors, nurses and staff at Burnaby Hospital and St. Michael’s Hospice.
A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 at St. Helen’s Church, 3860 Triumph Street, Burnaby, B.C.
