Domenico Continelli

Domenico Continelli, of St-Leonard, Quebec passed away on Monday, April 15th after reaching the age of 92 years old. After months of failing health, he died peacefully surrounded by his loving family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Eufemia Corsi Continelli along with his children; Vince (Irene), Mike (Silvana) and Sergio (Mary), and his grandchildren, Kevin, Mark-Andrew (Jennifer), Karina, James, Domenic and Miranda.

Domenico was born on February 20th, 1927 in Casacalenda, Italy. As a very young man he learned to work hard and to take on whatever job were available to support himself. In 1951 he left his hometown for Venezuela where he worked as a coal miner for three years. He then made his way to Montreal, Quebec in 1958 where he worked for CN Rail for over 25 years. St-Leonard became his permeant home where he and his wife Eufemia started their family. They had three sons and six grandchildren together whom all truly loved him. They will always cherish the wisdom he each provided them from a young age and their Italian culture he brought into their lives. He spent his lifetime teaching each one of them the importance of family and to always take care of each other. Domenico always supported them all on each of their journeys of life.

He will be remembered for being an incredibly strong man who was always working very hard. His passion was gardening and keeping his homeland traditions alive, which will now be passed on and cherished by his sons and grandchildren. He was a doting husband, father and grandfather who loved and cherished his family dearly. He will be missed, always loved and never forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent in his memory to the Ophthalmology clinic of the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, https://www.imakeanonlinedonation.org/fondationhmr/DIM/.
