Giuseppe Poscente
Born Antrodoco, Rieti, Italy April 23, 1926 to Clelia Felli and Priamo Poscente.

Giuseppe Poscente passed away peacefully in the morning on Sunday, February 2, 2020 at the age of 93.

As a youth, Giuseppe worked on aqueduct projects and later as the driver to the town doctor ferrying patients for appointments. Searching for a better life, he emigrated to Canada in 1950 on the ocean liner Vulcania, landing in Halifax and taking the train to Nordegg. He then moved to Calgary where he lived with other bachelor Italians at first, then married Annunziata, also of Antrodoco, in 1953 in Drumheller. Their children Sandro and Clelia arrived, and he raised his children to become university educated professionals.

Giuseppe worked hard for his family. He worked in the sheet metal industry at Stewart-Phillips, then Watson Sheet Metal, later forming his own company West Air Sheet Metal. His career path took him from a Benchman to Journeyman to General Superintendent to Owner/Operator to computerized pattern design and layout. He was involved in many big projects such as: Calgary Place, Market Mall, Saddledome, McEwan Hall, Foothills Hospital, and many shopping centres in BC, AB and SK.

Giuseppe volunteered his labour and provided materials for work at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, S. Andrea and Our Lady of Grace Roman Catholic churches. He worked on many furnaces and eavestroughs for fellow Italians. He was a good handy man.

Giuseppe took many trips back to Italy. He also enjoyed travelling to Alaska, Hawaii, California, Nevada, Florida, Mexico, Panama, Columbia and Caribbean. He built two homes from the ground up using sub-contracting management skills. He was a season ticket sporting enthusiast of the Calgary Flames and Calgary Stampeders.

Giuseppe was predeceased by his beloved wife Annunziata, brother Saverio and sister Irene. He will be dearly remembered by his son Sandro, daughter Clelia, sister Paola, as well as other relatives in Italy.
