1930 - 2013
On Friday, March 29, 2013. Beloved husband of the late Maria Del Balso. Born in Campobasso, Italy and orphaned at a young age, Francesco's boundless spirit took him to Belgium and then to Canada in search of a better life. He built a successful real estate business in Montreal, but it's the simple things in life that he enjoyed most: his home- made wine, his garden, Serie A soccer and the company of his family. He will be missed by his children Sabino (Clara), Pasqualina (Jim) and Antonietta (Stanley) and his grandchildren, Cristina, Sabrina, Francesco, Emma, Sara, Alessandra, Roberto, Tessa and Victoria. Visitation on Monday, April 8, 2013 from 7 to 10 p.m. at Urgel Bourgie Funeral Parlour, 1255 Beaumont Avenue, Town of Mount Royal. Funeral service on Tuesday April 9 at 11 a.m. at St Viateur Parish, 1175 Laurier West, corner of Bloomfield in Outremont, thence to Notre-Dame-des- Neiges Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to La Fondation Santa Cabrini would be appreciated.
