It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Decimo on Tuesday, May 12th at the Columbia View Lodge in Trail, BC surrounded by his loving family just three days after his 87th birthday.
Decimo Orgolio Cescon was born May 9th, 1928 in Fontanelle, Treviso, Italy.
Decimo worked as a baker for 37 years at City Bakery and F&W Bakery. His hobbies included camping, fishing, gardening and wine making. He enjoyed baking so much that it continued to bring him great joy long after his retirement. He was also an avid member of Colombo Lodge and the Club Italico. He was very handy and around the neighborhood was referred to as “Mr. Fix It”; he was always willing to help anyone in need.
Left to mourn his passing; his loving and devoted wife of 62 years Onorina; his children Nilla (Danny) Mailey and Rick Cescon, his grandchildren; Graham Mailey; Ashley (Scott) Fabro; Brett and Sydney Cescon, his pride and joy; great-grandsons Briggs, Rhett and Ford Fabro. Decimo is also survived by his sister Clelia Della Pieta in Italy, sisters-in-law Pia Cescon; Lina Zol and Anna Zol in Trail as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He will also be greatly missed by his four-legged companion Cico.
The family would like to give a warm thank you to the staff at Columbia View Lodge especially his walking buddy Dusty. Thank you for bringing joy to Decimo in his final days.
He was predeceased by his parents, four brothers and four sisters.
