Giuseppe Mocci

With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Giuseppe Mocci on February 9th, 2015 at Rosewood Village in Trail, BC.

Giuseppe (Joe) will be dearly missed by his sons; George (Sandy) and Claude (Heather), his grandchildren; Cailyn, Julia, Tahlia, and Mila, his brother Francesco, and sister Bonaria, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Anna, his brother Raimondo, and his sisters Delia and Teresa.

Joe was born in Cagliari, Italy, on November 24th, 1929. For 14 years he worked as a Carabinieri (military police) in Sardegna. He then travelled and lived in Australia for 5 years before immigrating to Canada in 1967. He settled with his family in Fruitvale, BC in 1980 and finished his career as a welder at Cominco.

Joe will be remembered for his artwork, gardening, and love of soccer.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks for the exceptional care from the staff at Rosewood Village. Your reassurance and diligence in keeping Joe comfortable and peaceful made it so much easier to say goodbye to our dear father and nonno.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Monday, February, 16th at 11:00 am at Holy Trinity Parish with Father Bart van Roijen, Celebrant. Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.

As an expression of sympathy, donations in Joe’s name may be made to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital Health Foundation at 1200 Hospital Bench, Trail, BC, V1R 4M1 or online at
