Enzo Cavazzoni VICTORIA, BC - Enzo Cavazzoni passed away suddenly August 15, 2012 in Victoria, BC at the age of 80. Words can hardly express his contributions to life, while he embarked on a great global journey to provide his loved ones with better lives. Born in Genova, Italy on March 2, 1932, Enzo quickly stood out as a child, eventually graduating in Mechanical Engineering while competing for the Italian National Waterpolo Team. A goalie for the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia, Enzo established himself as one of the greatest athletes to ever play the position. Following his retirement he began a unique, yet sometimes difficult journey to establish multinational businesses in Switzerland, Canada and the United States. Enzo's intellect and study of history was unmatched, giving him the ability to synthesize today's world. As a lifetime learner he continued with Master's and Doctorate studies. His love and support for his three children was endless, allowing them to succeed in life as immigrants, without the benefit of traditional social networks or connections. But perhaps Enzo's greatest achievement was personally caring for the love of his life, Anne-Marie "Annie", as she battles Multiple Sclerosis for thirty five years, for it showed the true measure of his heart and soul. His deep voice, intellect, body of knowledge and larger than life presence will be missed, but his legacy will continue through his wife of fifty four years, Anne-Marie; daughters, Patrizia and Christiana; son, Marco; grandchildren, Sarah, Darcy, Alex, Margot and Isabel; brother, Luigi. We miss you Pap, but we'll make you proud. You'll forever be in our hearts. Enjoy heaven, you deserve it! A Graveside Service will be held at 11:00 am on Monday, August 20, 2012 at Royal Oak Burial Park in Victoria, BC. In lieu of flowers (preferred) you may make a donation in Enzo's name to: Logan Rutledge Children's Foundation, LAPS Program, 1324 Crown Reach, Mount Pleasant, SC 29466 Visit our guestbook at www.legacy.com/obituaries/ charleston
