Conte BenjaminCONTE, Benjamin - (May 19, 1990November 4, 2018) - 

Creative thinker, one-of-a-kind musician and kind soul - died in his home on Sunday, November 4th, 2018, and is now resting in the arms of God.

He was 28 years old.

Some of Ben’s happiest moments were spent in the north, where he worked and played alongside other free-spirited tree planters.

A keen, non-judgemental observer of humans, Ben studied psychology at Trent University.

We will miss his happy, improvisational piano playing and his dark, dry wit.

Cherished son of Mike Conte and Christy Conte (Calven), brother of Dallas, grandson of Nonna Giovina and beloved by his many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Preceded in death by Grandma Esther and Nonno Angelo.
