Charlie had quite the historical story and lived a fun fulfilled life. Charlie was born in Biella, Italy and started his journey to Canada in 1952 when he was only 18 years old. He worked hard and he played hard. Charlie was fi rst married in 1960 and worked in several businesses across BC, including the transporting, moving, and cement industries. Charlie was the owner of Grosso Pre-Cast and retired back in 2010.
Charlie was no stranger to Vegas and co ffee shops. Charlie loved all sports, particularly hockey, he was a popular referee and all three of his children Garry, Rick, and Lori loved the ice just as he did.
Charlie had a passion for travel; he would go to Zihuatanejo, Mexico each winter for some warm weather. Charlie was able to go on one last trip to his favourite place this past January. He will be greatly missed and remembered by all.
