Luigi Antonio Forlin

October 27, 2019
It is with heavy hearts that the daughters of Luigi Antonio Forlin announce that he passed at home, October 27th 2019. Whether he went by the name Luigi or Louis, he was an amazing son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather, newly great-grandfather, and friend. He enjoyed spending time with his family. He was kind, loving, and fearless. Louis was always willing to help out a family member, friend, or neighbour in need. Louis keen eye for detail kept him busy. Gardening was a passion for him. The house and garden that he built at Christina Lake will be ingrained in his family’s memory forever. He loved a little healthy competition when it came to gardening. Whether it be peas or tomatoes, he always had the best and biggest vegetables.
