Annibale (Andy) Emilio Salvador

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Annibale Salvador on March 23, 2012 at the age of 91.

Annibale was born in Valvasone, Province of Udine, Italy on July 21, 1920. He married Angelina on February 26, 1949. Shortly after they wed, he immigrated to Canada in 1950, settled in Trail and worked at Cominco for 30 years until he retired in 1982. Annibale enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, wine making, gardening and fishing. One of his biggest enjoyments in his later years was his frequent trips to Ferraro Foods to socialize with the staff.

He is survived by his wife Angelina of 63 years, his son Gary (Kathy), daughter in law, Shelley and 3 sisters, Victoria, Avelina, and Adele; grandchildren Nathan (Christine), Angelina (Marty), Ryanna, Christina (Jared) and Roberta; one great-grandson, Nolan and numerous nieces and nephews.
