It is with deep sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather, Siro.
Left to grieve his absence is his wife of 53 years, Nerina Rugolo, their children Sonny, Dennis, Loris (Meredith), Eddy (Becky), Morris and Alex (Erin). Also grieving his absence are his grandchildren Casie, Tea, Ryan, Emma, Lia, Eric, Mila and Amy.
Siro was born in Monfumo, Treviso, Italy and moved to Canada in 1957 at the age of 19. Siro met Nerina in 1964 while he was on vacation in Italy and they were married in Vancouver, B.C. in 1965. Siro and Nerina lived in Tahsis, B.C. for nine years before settling in Kamloops in 1974. Siro loved the outdoors especially gardening, fishing and hunting. Each year, he would harvest his small crop of tomatoes to make pasta sauce and spend time in his cantina perfecting his wine recipe.
The Funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2019, at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, 635 Tranquille Road, Kamloops. Father Paul Simms, Celebrant.
