CIAMPINI, Vittorio
On Saturday, January 12, 2019, Vittorio Ciampini passed away peacefully at CHSLD Bussey at the age of 93.
He was born in a small village in Italy and as a young man, he experienced a lack of opportunity and the hardships of war, prompting him to work as a coal miner in Belgium for 4 years. He immigrated to Canada in 1954 with his wife, Antonia, and their children Domenica, Francesco, and Giacomino (James) in pursuit of a better life. In the years that followed, Vittorio and Antonia welcomed their fourth child, Rosa.
Although his teachers encouraged him to pursue his education, family circumstances allowed him to only complete grade 5. However, possessing the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Samson, and unrelenting determination, he, along with the support of his wife, provided his family with a solid foundation based on strong family values, education and faith. We like to believe this was accomplished.
He was the cherished husband of Antonia D’Alesio for 71 years; beloved father of Domenica (late Rino), Francesco (Helen), James (Anna) and Rosa (Franco); devoted grandfather of Antonietta (Robert), Vittorio (Michèle), Vanessa (Mike), Jessica (Alexandre), Talia (Franco), Justin (Fauve), Vittorio Jean (Sophie), Jordan (Alice), Adam (Laura), Lucas (Tea) and Sara; adoring great-grandfather of Marco (Isabella), Carlo, Tayne, Angélique, Alexia, Ravyn, Miro, Emma, Noah, Michael, Éloi, Tyler, Olivia, Dante, Julian, Nicolas and Adrian. He is predeceased by his parents, Francesco and Emilia, sisters Domenica, Paolina (Domenico), and Anna (Lorenzo), brothers Leonardo (Lucia), Ignazio, and Liberato (Finalba). He will be sadly missed by his sister Vincenza (late Luigi), sisters-in-law Ernesta (late Ignazio), Maria (Mario), Assunta (late William), brothers-in-law Domenico (late Margherita), Berardino (Artemisia), Camillo (Enella), Guido (Bianca) and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
A very special thank you to the caregivers, nurses and staff at CHSLD Bussey for treating Vittorio with love and compassion.
The family will receive condolences on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Kane & Fetterly Funeral Home, 5301 Decarie Blvd., Montreal. The funeral service will be held on January 16, 2019 at 11 a.m. at Saint-Raymond-de-Pennafort, 5765 St-Jacques, Montreal and burial at Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to CHSLD Bussey or Alzheimer Society.

You are in our thoughts in these very difficult moments. It seems your father had a rough beginning in life but eventually had a fulfilled one. Our sincere sympathies to the family. May he rest in peace with the love of God.

To the Ciampini Family, our Ronald Drive childhood friends and neighbours,
I am so very sorry to hear that your beloved Vittorio passed away. I will always remember him as a very hardworking, kind and devoted family man. If I close my eyes I see him sweeping with his twig boom, a broom which seemed very exotic to a young girl.
He was the first of our neighbours to express his condolences when my brother passed over at too young an age. His shook my father's hand and neither had words to speak.
I hope your memories will bring you comfort during this time of sorrow. Please take comfort knowing others share in your sorrow.
With deepest sympathy,
From: Ann Vaccaro

My deepest sympathies to all the family! My prayers are with you. Let your heart be comforted by the loving memories of your father. May he RIP.

Dear family and friends of CIAMPINI, Vittorio
Hello my name is Lina , and I would first like to start off by sending everyone my condolences. When we lose a loved one it’s never easy . We may ask ourselves will suffering ever end? Something that gives us hope is what the Bible says in revelation 21:3,4 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
As we read in the Bible it gives us hope that one day there will not be death. Suffering crying, or pain. What a wonderful hope that God gives us. I hope this message finds you well.
Best Lina Dubon
