PUPO, Vitorio 'Victor' – On Sunday, January 8, 2017 Victor Pupo joined his beloved wife of 70 years, Mary (October 2016) in eternal rest.
Victor passed peacefully like the gentle and quiet man that he was, at the Post Inn Village, Oakville in his 96th year.
Cherished father of Nancy and Ron Marr, Norene Pupo-Barkans and John Barkans, proud grandfather of Geoffrey Marr and his wife Tamara, Jennifer Barkans, Gregory Barkans and great-grandfather of Sasha Marr.
Dear brother of Angelo and Helen Pupo, brother-in-law of Julie and Joseph Serianni, Raymond and Madeline Ravazzolo, Ida DeSmone and Ramona Scrivani. Fondly remembered by many nieces and nephews.
Predeceased by his mother Annunziata, his father Gabriel, step-mother Assunta, brother Peter and his wife Helen, sisters and brothers-in law; Louis and Dorothy Ravazzolo, Frank and Rena D’Amelio, David DeSimone and Joseph Scrivani.
Victor was employed as a machinist at Page Hersey Stelco until his retirement. He was a humble, caring man who gave selflessly to his children and grandchildren whom he loved unconditionally. He spent many hours enjoying his grandchildren, playing cards, games, telling stories, listening to music and teaching them Italian words.
Victor was an avid fisherman, excellent cook, vegetable gardener and self taught wine maker who shared knowledge of his craft.
Thank you to the dedicated staff at Post Inn for their loving care, compassion and devotion to making Victor comfortable in his last years and for the support to the family. Thank you, also, to Dr. Tziougras for her excellent care.
The family will receive visitors at the H.L. Cudney Funeral Home, Welland on Friday, January 13th from 2- 4 & 6 – 8 p.m.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at the Parish Community of St. Kevin, 307 Niagara Street, Welland on Saturday, January 14th at 10 a.m. Following the service, Victor will be laid to rest next to his wife, Mary, at Holy Cross Cemetery.
If desired, donations to the St. Kevin’s Food Bank or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be gratefully appreciated.
