It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend, Pietro (Pete) Bittante on April 20, 2022. Pietro passed into the arms of our Lord with his close family around him, after a brief illness.

Pietro Fortunato Bittante was born on November 25, 1932 in Coste di Maser in the Italian province of Treviso. He was the eldest of seven children born to Alberto and Maria Bittante.

Pietro is survived by his loving wife Elsa of 61 years and his 5 children, Agnese (Mike), Renso (Laura), Roberto (Jana), Gianni (Leah), and Michele (Celine), his 15 grandchildren, many cousins, nieces, nephews, and his sisters, Rina and Luisa, and brother, Armando (Lucia).

Pietro made the decision to start a new life in Canada and travelled here in 1956, following his uncles Carlo and Narciso, where he built his life-long house and home in Kamloops, British Columbia. He had met Elsa (née Foscarini) in Italy, but it was only after several years of exchanging letters that he saved the money to send her a ring, and she joined him in Canada, where they were married on July 16, 1960. He was eventually followed to Kamloops by his brother, Arturo and his sister, Luisa. He is predeceased
by his parents, his brothers, Iseo, Arturo, and Luigi as well as his sister-
in-law, Angela, his brothers-in-law, Bruno and Mario, his uncles, Carlo and Narciso, his aunt Pierina and his niece, Caterina.

Pietro enjoyed 28 years of retirement after spending 27 years working for the City of Kamloops. His retirement years were filled with family, gardening, fishing, woodwork, and more recently crafting rosaries for schools, prison inmates, and various Catholic organizations. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, and a long-time member of
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in North Kamloops.

He will be remembered forever in the hearts and memories
of his family and friends.

Prayers will be held on Sunday, April 24 at 7:00 PM, and the
funeral will be held on Monday, April 25 at 11 AM, both at
OLPH Church in North Kamloops.

Special thanks to the first responders, staff at Royal Inland Hospital,
and the staff at Trinity Care Hospice, where he spent his final hours.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Trinity Care at
953 Southill Street, Kamloops, BC V2B 7Z9 in memory of Pietro.

The funeral mass will be live streamed at:
