In Loving Memory ~
It is with profound grief and sadness that we announce the passing of our Father, Nonno, Raffaele (Ralph) Cupello, on July 14, 2022. Ralph was born in Grimaldi, Italy on April 18th 1931.
He is survived by his children; Frances, Sandra and Nancy, and granddaughter, Amanda, brother Frank and nieces and nephews. Ralph is predeceased by his wife Maria and his sister Maria Pettinato.
Ralph immigrated to Canada as a young man and eventually settled in Trail, BC where he raised his family and had a long career at Cominco. Ralph had a passion for gardening and loved sharing it with his friends and family. He enjoyed summers at the lake tending to his tomato plants and taking long walks.
