It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Danilo Carniato, a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Born in San Giuseppe, Treviso, Italy, on May 5, 1934, he passed on July 24, 2018 at the age of 84 after suffering an unsuccessful surgery in February 2017 to remove a tumor that left him hospitalized due to a spinal infection he contracted during surgery. He was predeceased by two of his children. Danilo is survived by his devoted loving wife Roseta; his daughter and many nieces, nephews and friends. Danilo came to Canada in 1954 with his technical skills and knowledge of machinery and industrial installations. This helped him to quickly become chief mechanic and later supervisor for the installation and maintenance of various lumber industries, in particular, saw mills and pulp mills. In 2001, Danilo was awarded the Gold Veteran’s Badge as an honor conferred by the Grand Lodge of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, due to the loyalty and service to fellow workers for a period of thirty years, having during this period of time, exemplified true value to fellow workers, thus achieving lasting respect and esteem of all workers in the association. Danilo believed that with good preparation, good will and sacrifice, it is possible to achieve almost everything in life. He will be remembered for his kindness, generosity and caring. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10am on Thursday, August 2, 2018 at Our Lady of Sorrows, 525 Slocan Street, Vancouver. Entombment to take place in Italy.
