The Honorable Albert Paul Catonio

May 10th, 1924 – August 15th, 2012

His honor Albert

Catonio passed away

on August 15th, 2012 after

a lengthy illness. He leaves behind his loving wife

Liliane, daughter Cheryl

Monagas (Carlos), two granddaughters Camila

and Oriana who were his pride and joy; sons Robert, David and Richardo and step-son Barry Steeves of Alberta, brothers Francis and Valentino of Blairmore, sister Ann Hanson of Regina and numerous nieces and nephews. Albert graduated from the University of Alberta in 1951 and practiced law until 1970 when he was appointed to the Provincial Court of

Alberta. He moved to Kelowna in 1994 after his retirement and spent his winters in the Dominican Republic with his loved ones. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed gardening. He loved literature and classical music, but most of all, he enjoyed the company of his family and friends. He will be

remembered for being a kind, thoughtful humble man with

a noble sense of integrity. There will be no service as it was his wish to “simply fold his tent, and silently disappear into the night”. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Central Okanagan Hospice

Foundation in memory of Mr. Catonio.
