September 21, 2017

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sebastian “Buzz” Nutini on Thursday, September 21, 2017.

He was predeceased by his parents, Giulio and Iolanda Nutini and his granddaughter, Carla Nutini.

Buzz was born and raised in Trail. He and his wife Selma celebrated 65 years of marriage this past summer.

He lives on in his seven children and twenty grandchildren, all of whom frequently would turn to him for advice.

He said, “I’m grateful for the life I’ve had. I have a beautiful wife and seven children who have good hearts.”

He lived his life to the fullest – whether by celebrating his 80th birthday with an early morning water ski on Christina Lake, schooling his grandkids on dance moves at birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, enjoying the sunshine on various tropical vacations, or jet setting all over the country to various family events. Family was everything to him.
