Born January 28th, 1922 in Recoaro Terme, Vicenza, Italy. Passed away on February 9, 2013 at the age of 91. Loving husband of Maria Teresa (nee Castellan) for 56 years. Devoted father to Ann Marie (John), Pat (Tim), Giorgio (Leonor) and Paul (Dawn). Caring nonno of Greg, Sean, Ryan, Eve, Giancarlo, Catarina, Luc and Max. Dear eldest brother of the late Norma, Roberto, Maria and Pier Giorgio. Survived by siblings Prassede, Benito, Gabriella, Giancarlo. Also missed by members of his wife's family (sisters-in-law Angela, Stella, Ilva) and many nieces and nephews in Canada, the U.S. and Italy, who will remember his sense of humour and "motti". Armando served his country in World War II and survived capture as a prisoner of war. He left "sunny Italy" and the mountains he loved for Canada, to explore education and other opportunities for his family. He was a proud Canadian and Italian. He embraced his adopted country, never forgot his native country, and enjoyed cheering for both in sporting events. After retiring from the Windsor Public School Board, he earned his Bachelor of Arts (University of Windsor) at the age of 70. Armando was a long-time parishioner of St. Angela Merici Church and member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. "Menito" always enjoyed vacations on Lake Muskasung with family and friends. A special thank you to the caring and attentive staff at Regency Park long term care facility. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the St.Vincent de Paul Society or the Canadian Diabetes Association. Visitation will take place at the
