Tarcisio Filippelli
January 1, 1954 – June 27, 2019

Tarcisio (Tony) Pasquale Salvatore Antonio Sebastiano Luigi Angelo Filippelli was born January 1st 1954 in Mendicino Cosenza Italy. Left to cherish his memory are his beloved mother Teresa Filippelli, sister Tonina (Agostino) Fiorentino, and beloved nephews, Anthony and Joseph Fiorentino. Also cherishing his memory are aunts, uncles and cousins in Winnipeg and Italy. He was predeceased by his father Giuseppe Filippelli, and his grandparents Antonio & Maria Conte and Antonia & Pasquale Filippelli.
At age one, Tarcisio’s parents noticed that he wasn’t responding to their voices. A trip to Rome and many tests later it was confirmed that he was deaf. At age 6 years the family decided to move to Canada for more opportunities. They arrived in Halifax, Pier 21 after 2 weeks on the ship “Vulcania”. They proceeded to Sioux Lookout Ontario where family was waiting to welcome them. Tarcisio then went on to attend and reside at the deaf school in Belleville Ontario during the years of 1960-1968, only returning home during summer vacations. The family finding it difficult to be so far away moved to Toronto to be closer to him. This is where Tarcisio’s love grew for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Due to unforeseen circumstances the family made the decision to move to Winnipeg in 1968 where the Conte family resided Tarcisio attended The Manitoba School for the Deaf, and was able to live at home with his family. This is where he formed many life long friendships which he has had till this day. Upon graduating from the Manitoba School for the deaf, Tarcisio pursued a career in Graphic Arts Design and attended St Paul College in Minnesota. Tarcisio was a very big advocate for the deaf community serving on many committees and as President. It was during his presidency along with his committee that TTY phones were installed in Hospitals, airports and other public places. He was also very involved in the Deaf Literacy Program. Pier 21 was very important to him, for he was a proud Italian immigrant, he had plaques, pictures and all our family’s names published in the history books at the museum. He was later interviewed and featured in the Pier 21 magazine on his 50th anniversary in Canada. He worked 41 years for Boeing Canada where he made many lifelong friends. Upon retiring in 2018, he enjoyed his time going for his beloved espresso and Margarita Pizza on Corydon Avenue, and enjoying comradery with everyone he met always sharing his contagious smiles. Throughout his life, nothing deterred him from accomplishing all he wished for, he travelled everywhere especially Italy, he lived life to the fullest. Tarcisio always said he was fortunate to have a family who never discouraged him from doing what he loved the most, they encouraged his ABILITY not his disability.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the doctors and nurses at the St Boniface hospital Palliative Care Unit. A very special thank you to the Nurses and Aides at the Grace Hospice where he died peacefully. As per Tarcisio’s wishes the family will be travelling to Italy to lay him to rest.
Memorial Mass will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday July 9th at Holy Rosary Parish, 510 River Avenue, Rev Father Sam Argenziano celebrant. Condolences to be offered after mass. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to three of Tarcisio’s beloved charities. The Manitoba School for the Deaf, Rossbrook House, and Pier 21.
