Lorenzo Parolin

August 10, 1934 - January 18, 2018


On Thursday, January 18, 2018, Mr. Lorenzo Parolin of Oliver passed away peacefully after a long illness at the South Okanagan General Hospital at the age of 83 years.

He was predeceased by his Father Giuseppe; Mother Matilda; Teresa (Nonna Rech); Antonio (Tony) Brother and Sister Bruna.

Lorenzo will be fondly remembered by his Wife Anna Maria; Son Ken (Sheryl) Wife and step-Grandchildren Willy, Wesley and Vikki; Grandson Sam; Son Daniel; Sister Maria; Brother Siro (Pierina); Brother Guerrino (Maria); Sister Milena as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins in the Lower  Mainland, Italy, Germany and Australia.

Lorenzo emigrated to Canada from Mussolente, Italy in 1966 and his family followed soon after. He came from a generation of people who were hard workers who were always willing to learn and he was willing to help others when asked. My parents had celebrated 63 years of Matrimony.

Over the years, Lorenzo worked at Globe Foundry (smelter) and Vito Steel Boat & Barge as a welder, painter and metal worker as well as Rivtow as a welder, painter and supervisor and metal worker.

Lorenzo loved his family, friends, winemaking, good food, gardening and was always proud of his tomatoes, peppers and beans. He also loved his flowers and his apple tree with three types of apples on it. He also liked lawn bowling and carpet bowling as was involved in various Senior Games Tournaments. Lorenzo also loved Bocce and was instrumental in building a bocce court in Oliver, BC.

He was a long time member and helped in many ways at IMAS (Roma Hall) in New Westminster and was still a member to his last day.

Lorenzo loved to stay home with his family and friends but did travel back to Italy while his parents were alive and to Mexico to visit cousin.

Lorenzo was a fighter during his long illness and didn’t want his family to see him suffer during his illness. He will be missed by many. May he rest in Peace. Surrounded by loved ones in Heaven as on Earth.

A memorial mass will be celebrated at 11:00 A.M. Saturday April 7, 2018 at Christ the King Catholic Church, Oliver, BC.

Condolences may be sent to the Parolin Family, 301 Riesling Place, Oliver, BC V0H 1T4.

So sad to hear of Lorenzo’s passing Maria and family.
My prayers are with you and yours.

Relation: Cousin

Dear Maria and family. Today’s service was so such a great send-off for a lovely man who I’m proud to call my cousin. It wasn’t until Chuck and I joined the Italian club and met you both, that Lorenzo told me we were related. Lorenzo was a wonderful man who suffered too much – he’ll be looking down on us in happiness now!!!
