On April 10th 2019, Pietro Bolongaro at age 92 passed away due to age related complications. He is survived by his dear wife Maria and his 5 children Nicoletta, Eugenio, Anna-Maria, Francesco and Alessandro, as well as 8 grandchildren. Pietro lived a long and fulfilling life full of change and surprises.
Reading, politics and the outdoors were some of his passions. His favourite pass time was eating and drinking and you would often see him cooking his favourite dishes in the kitchen alone or with us.
He was a dedicated father and a devout catholic in his own particular way.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. John the Apostle Parish (5457 Trafalgar Street, Vancouver) on Thursday, April 25th at 11:00am.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Pietro can be made to Covenant House.
