It is with deep sorrow and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Silvino Iacobucci. Surrounded by his loving family, Silvino passed away peacefully on January 17, 2021. Silvino was a beloved husband to his wife, Adele, for more than 63 years. He was a devoted father to Giovanni (Marina) and Luciano. Most importantly, he was a cherished grandfather to Andrina (Matthew) and Jessica.
Silvino is survived by his brother Antonio (Concettina), sister-in-law Rosalia, and brother-in-law Donato. Silvino is reunited in heaven with his brother Vittorio and sisters Concettina, Paola, Maria, and Chiara (Natalina). He will be lovingly remembered by his many nieces, nephews, and extended family in Canada, Italy, and Australia.
Silvino was born on April 7, 1934 in San Valentino, Abruzzo, Italy to Giovanni and Carmela Iacobucci. He married the love of his life, Adele, on December 7, 1957. With nothing more than a hope and dream in mind for their future, they immigrated to Canada to begin building the foundations for a beautiful new life together. He worked tirelessly everyday towards achieving his goals, which included his love for being a school caretaker for twenty-three years. Silvino always found the will and the strength needed to overcome all of life’s challenges, bravely fighting even in his final days.
Thank you for creating such a strong and unified family. You are our hero, and greatest role model in life. We will love you for an eternity, and will cherish your legacy in our hearts forever. Until we meet again, rest in eternal peace. Vi vogliamo un mondo di bene.
