Fernando Bottoni

February 18, 1942 - November 1, 2014

Tribute

Fernando Bottoni, born in Rome, Italy in 1942, died November 1st, 2014 at home with his wife and friends by his side. Fernando, 72 years old, is survived by his wife, Gianna, his daughter and her husband, Marzia and Aaron, his son and wife, Max and Doris, and two grandchildren, Sophia and Timothy.  His brothers Pino and Carlo recently visited from Rome, Italy. 

Fernando moved his young family to Canada in 1974 and was a proud Canadian citizen since 1978.  He held strong ties to Italy and especially Rome, but planted deep and lasting roots in Canada first in Langley BC and then here in Oliver.  He and Gianna worked tirelessly for their family building a life in Canada from 2 trunks and 5 suit cases with help and support from the many friends he found here. 

He was a founding member of the Italo-Canadian Club in Langley BC holding positions of director and treasurer over his 20 year affiliation with the club.  Fernando was a family man and always ready to help friends and family.  His one true passion was his wine.  He retired from a career in construction to Oliver and was able to work in the wine industry for much of the past 10 years for Burrowing Owl.  Up until the last, his passion for wine and wine making kept him moving; filtering and bottling his last Pinot Grigio perfected with the help of Maverick Estate's wine maker, Bertus.  He took great pride in his home, working over the past decade to finish and refine it himself.  

 Prayers will be recited at Christ the King Catholic Church at 5:00 P.M. Thursday November 6, 2014

A funeral mass will be held in Oliver at Christ the King Catholic Church on Friday November 7th at 3:00 PM followed by a reception hosted by the CWL in the church lower hall.

Kurtis, Bruno and I were saddened to hear of Fernando’s passing… and horrified we had missed this sad news until now.
Kurtis much enjoyed his time spent with Fernando in the cellar at Burrowing Owl. And Bruno and I were always very happy to chat with him, he did indeed light up the room when he was in it. Our sincerest condolences to Fernando’s family and friends, a bit late, but still heartfelt.
May you Rest in Peace, Fernando.
Warm regards,
Stella Schmidt, Bruno Kelle & Kurtis Kelle
