It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Carmine Di Saverio, 88, born in Elce di Cortino Italy. He was the son the of late Saverio and Giuliana Di Giuseppe.

Carmine travelled to Canada on April 1963. His port of entry was Pier 21 in Halifax on the Olympia, then travelled to Moncton to marry his fiancé Ada Di Simone that May.

Without the knowledge of the English language, Carmine and Ada worked hard to raise their family. They didn’t have a huge home or fancy cars, but their home was full of love and Italian was the only language spoken, and that was non-negotiable.

Carmine worked as a truck driver for MacDonald’s Paving where he retired 1998. He took great pride in his truck; no smoking or eating was ever allowed.

Carmine’s heart belonged to Travazzano Italy, where he spent many years travelling with Ada and their family. He gladly spent his days tending to his olive and fruit trees and relaxing on his balcony.

Camine is survived by his loving wife of 59 years Ada, children, Saverio (Darlene), Lorella (Roderick) and Daniela (Michel). Grandchildren, Dionigi, Angela, Ethan, Marco and Emma; brother: Antonio and sister-in-law Ida, both of Italy.

Besides his parents, Carmine is predeceased by his siblings, Luigi, Rita, Ginetta and Ennio and grandson Caleb.

Carmine was a humble man and in keeping with his wishes, there will be no visitations. Funeral will be held on Wednesday August 3, 2022 at 11:00am at St. Bernard's Church, 43 Botsford St, Moncton. Funeral mass will be recorded and uploaded to his obituary at www.frenettefuneralhome.com by the end of day Wednesday.

We would like to thank Dr. Marc Cormier and Dr. Tara Murphy and the wonderful and compassionate nursing staff of 4F at G. Dumont hospital for their exceptional care of our father.

Donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society or the donor's choice.
