It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Pio on January 6, 2013, at the age of 82 years. He was born in the small village of Gremarco, in Udeni, Italy. He moved to Canada when he was 21 years old. He worked in the logging camps in Seachelt for many years then moved to the lower mainland and worked at Saskatchewan Wheat Pool until he retired. Pio was devoted to his family, friends, church and community, especially with the Knights of Columbus. Pio touched many lives with his caring and willingness to help. Surviving is his loving family: brother Mario (Sarah); daughter Irene (Peter); son Larry (Gail); nieces and nephews; grandchildren and great grandchildren. Prayers and viewing will be held at St. Edmunds Catholic church in North Vancouver on Tuesday January 15, 2013 from 10:00 – 11:00 am. A funeral service and mass will follow at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made in Pio's name to the BC Cancer Society.
