Cesario Ciffolilli Sr.

Oct. 13, 1935 – Feb. 21, 2013

Cesario passed away February 21, 2013 after a seven year fight with cancer.

Survived by his wife Barbara, children Sandra (Udo), Deena (Don), Michelle (Scott), Cesario Jr. (Cindy) and grandchildren, Caesar, Amanda, Erin, Sonia and Dino. Also left are his two sisters Anna, Rosa and numerous nieces and nephews in Italy.

Born in Vasto, Italy he immigrated to Canada in 1957 for what was suppose to be a one year work stint, which turned into 56.

He worked in the local sawmills before owning Shefield & Sons.

He spent the last 17 years doing the things he enjoyed, his garden, traveling, fishing and his most favourite passion, biking. He was very proud of the medals and accomplishments he received from biking in the senior games.

The funeral was held Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2013 at Sacred Heart Parish in Terrace, B.C.

A special thank you to Dr. Appleton who he considered a friend, as well as his doctor and to the nursing staff at Mills Memorial Hospital. Another thank you to Father Terry for the comfort and support given to all at this time.
