February 3, 1933 – November 12, 2019
It is with profound sadness that the family announces the passing of Italo Bisutti at 86 years of age. He leaves behind to cherish his memory his beloved wife “Nina”, daughter Laura, grandchildren Joel, Josh and Julia, daughter Franca, and son-in-law Barry.
Dad was born in a small village in northern Italy called Domanins, located in the province of Friuli. He immigrated to Montreal, Canada in 1953 and later moved to Winnipeg where he met mom. They were married one year later and recently celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary on August 31, 2019.
Dad loved playing soccer in the early years with many friends from the Italian community, with whom he shared much in common. Throughout the years there were more friends, wonderful get-togethers, occasions for eating lots of delicious food and great wine.
Dad enjoyed spending lots of time in the kitchen and was an excellent cook. He loved to give “care packages” to all of his family. “Nonno” also took particular pleasure when his grandchildren enjoyed eating whatever he prepared. It was very important to him to make sure that everyone was provided for. His generosity, unparalleled. Dad also spent a lot of time in his garden in which he took pride. It was beautiful and meticulous. When he came home from work at the end of day, he could be found weeding through the row of herbs and vegetables while still dressed in his suit and tie.
Dad was employed in the business of precast-prestressed concrete. In the beginning he worked with Supercrete. Later his position was as foreman, then superintendent of the precast concrete division at Preco Ltd. Further on, he took a position in the business office as sales representative of Genstar Structures Ltd. Throughout his career he was known for his honor, integrity, and good character which were above reproach. In 1984 dad took an early retirement at the age 51. He and mom were able to enjoy many wonderful trips back and forth to Italy every year.
Dad was proud to see his grandchildren Joel, Josh and Julia graduate high school and continue on in their own chosen field of education. There were many debates at the dining room table with “Nonno”. We all laughed and had a great time listening to the spirited opinions that naturally go along with conversations between the generations.
It was dad’s wish to eventually return to rest in the Bisutti Family Mausoleum in the village where he was born, Domanins, Italy. Funeral service to be held in Italy.
He will be deeply missed and always loved by his family.
