Obituary for Sante Fedele
April 20, 1941 – July 30, 2017
Our hearts are broken. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear Sante after a very short and courageous battle with cancer. He was a loving husband, father, nonno and good friend to many. He leaves behind his wife, Ersilia, of 51 years; children Angela (Tony) and Leo (Sandra); grandchildren Dante, Sofia, Dario, Marina and Julia; siblings Michele (Concetta), Eufemia (Luigi) and Luisa (Luigi); and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
We will always remember Sante as a charismatic, kind and loving person who made friends with everyone and made people feel like family. He enjoyed gardening, making his own wine, vacationing, and loved entertaining and spending time with family and friends. The outpouring of love from everyone he knew is overwhelming and humbling, but also not surprising as he touched the lives of so many people in wonderful ways. He was so very proud of his children and grandchildren, and his wish was to watch them all flourish and have families of their own. He was taken much too soon, and will be truly missed by all.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10am on Friday, August 4th at St. Helen’s Parish (3860 Triumph Street, Burnaby) followed by entombment at Ocean View Abbey Mausoleum.
