Obituary for Calogero John Caci

Calogero (John) Caci
June 24, 1954 - May 2, 2019

On the sunny afternoon of Thursday May 2, John Caci passed away at the age of 64, in his home surrounded by his loving family and friends. He fought a long hard battle with cancer and is now resting in peace.

He will be lovingly remembered by his spouse Rosemary St Laurent, his children Bianca, Isabella, Vincenzo and Chris Pereira (Lynnette).
His brother Lou (Anita) and Lilly & Marco, nieces Melissa Caci (Brad) and Michelle Ortega (Travis) and their families. Zia Francesca Zammito (Padrina) and cousins Pina and Franca, Zia Caterina Caci and cousins Sal, Frank, Susy and Maria. His life friend Suzy Caci and her mom Fernie Purse. Sister-In-law Yvonne St Laurent (John) and nieces Natasha and Samantha, Sister-In-law Deedee Prokopich and niece Karissa, brother in law Danny Prokopich, Sister-In-law Jackie (Ron) and Trisha Shannon and their respective families. As well all families in Sicily, Belgium, Switzerland and Hamilton, Ontario.

John was predeceased by his parents Vincenzo and Assunta, brother Sam (Salvatore), Zio Luigi and Raimondo and Uncle Joe Caci, Zia Anna Caci, Zio Rosario Zammito (Padrino), father in law John Prokopich, brother in laws Alex and Brian Shannon.

John was born on June 24, 1954 in Aragona, Sicily and came to Canada in 1965. It was here where he made his dreams come true while never forgetting his roots by always having a piece of Sicily in his heart. Over the years many trips were made with his family and friends to share “La bella Sicilia”. John also loved relaxing at his beach condo in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico and shared many great holidays there with friends and family.

John loved his family and worked very hard to provide for them. His love was always shown by bulk grocery shopping and most notably planning and cooking meals for family and friends. His door was always open to either to share a glass of wine or a meal and always looked forward to a game of crib.

John had passion for business and his entrepreneurial spirit came through in his hair salons. His guests and employees were his second family. Everyone who came to the salon was greeted with his big smile or big hug. They loved his charisma and upbeat persona and he loved them. During his battle with cancer, he was happy to know he had built many friendships with clients and his past and present employees. He was ever so grateful for their loving support.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Health Sciences Center, Victoria Hospital and the Palliative Care staff for their compassionate care.

Condolences will be offered at 9:30 am on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church 510 River Ave. with the Mass of Resurrection to follow at 11:00 AM. Entombment in Holy Angel Mausoleum, Hwy #1 E at Navin Rd, Winnipeg MB. A Celebration of John’s life and reception will be held at the Mosaic Event Centre, 1006 Nairn Ave. after the rite of committal at the Mausoleum.

Pallbearers: Chris Pereira, Vincenzo Caci, Fernando Pimentel, Sandy Shannon, Carmen Alongi, Marco Caci, Brad Marshall, Pro Lagos

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CancerCare Challenge for Life 2.0 walk on Saturday June 8, 2019 in memory of John Caci or to Water Aid Canada at

Sincere condolences to the Caci family. John was a wonderful man who will be missed by all who got to know him. He will be missed in particular by his brothers in the Sons of Italy who will always remember him as an undefeated champion chef.
