CHIOCCHIO, Salvatore Emilio (Sam) - It is with deep sadness that we must announce the recent passing of Sam at the North Bay Regional Health Centre on August 4th, 2013, at the age of 86. Sam was born on March 9th, 1927 in Sulmona, Province of Aquila, Italia, and was raised nearby in the small village of Cocullo nestled in the hills of the Appennine mountain range. In 1957 Sam emigrated to North Bay, Ontario, Canada where he settled, built a reputation as a hard-working family man, and as he would say ?grew his family?. Sam was a loving partner and best friend to wife Amelia Chiocchio (nee De Bellis), also originally from Cocullo, who just celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary on June 11th, 2013. Sam was a proud and supportive father to Silvana Alexander (Bill) and Antonietta Peever (Maurice), and a loving and caring Nonno to Heather and Meghan Alexander. Dear brother of Nino (Nicolina) of Italia. Loving Uncle of Giulio, Tony, Gianni, Lidia, Loretto, Maria, Fabrizio, Crescenzo and Anna and their families. Predeceased by his parents Adolfo and Giulia (Archiere), sisters Velia, Elda and brothers Nello and Guerino. Sam was a proud past member of the Davedi Club. Sam was a good friend to many, always ready with a smile and a joke. We will miss him deeply. Arrangements are entrusted to McGuinty Funeral Home. The family will receive visitors on Thursday August 8th from 2-4 and 7-9 pm. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Friday at 10:30 am at St Peter the Apostle. Interment will follow at All Saints Mausoleum. If desired donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Association would be greatly acknowledged. The family would like to express their heartfelt thank you to Heather of CCAC and Vicky of ParaMed, Pat Rancourt, Pastoral Services and everyone at the ER and D3 Pod and Patient Food Services of the North Bay Regional Health Centre for their care and assistance during this most difficult time.
