With great sadness, we announce the passing of Ernani Consalvo on January 23rd, 2022, who passed away peacefully with his family by his side.

Ernani is survived by his loving wife, Sabia, of 62 years; two sons Tony and Mario (Anita); three grandchildren Rio, Taya, and Carel; brother Domenico; sister-in-law Ornella, nieces Maria, Tina, and Lorilee, and many other close friends. He also leaves behind many relatives in Italy.

Ernani was born on September 27th, 1933, in Casoli, Italy. At the age
of 24, he arrived in Halifax by boat; he made his way out west and settled in Valemount, BC. Two years later, the love of his life came to join him,
and they got married on July 11th, 1959. Their first son, Tony, was born, and six years later, their family was completed with the birth of their second son, Mario. The family eventually made their way to
Kamloops, BC. Ernani worked for the CN Railway as a foreman for 32 years before retiring at age 56.

After retirement, Ernani enjoyed fishing, gardening, making wine, building, renovating and creating new inventions to make life easier for those he loved. Ernani was not a man of many words, but he showed his love by helping others; he was always there for family and friends. He was a wonderful Nonno to his grandchildren Rio, Taya and Carel. Ernani’s favourite moments were Sunday night dinners surrounded by his family and friends. Even though he is not with us anymore, Ernani’s spot at the table will remain his forever.

A private funeral Mass will be held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
