March 20, 1930 – April 19, 2012

It is with great pain and sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of Gino Ario Agostini. Gino was born in Vecchiano Italy and immigrated to Canada in 1967 in search of a better life for his family. Gino and the family set roots in Langley B.C. Gino was an iron worker/fabricator and worked in the industry until his retirement. Gino and his wife Maria made Qualicum Beach their home in 2003. Gino was an avid outdoorsman with fishing being his true passion. He loved gardening, making wine, and cooking. Gino was easygoing and made friends easily wherever he went but his first priority was always to his family. He will be deeply missed by all. Gino was preceded in death by a son Enrico Agostini, he is survived by his wife Maria, his two sons Nello (Velma) and Alberto (Junko), his daughter Laura (John), and five grandchildren Tianna, Christofer, Antonio, Marco, Luca, great grandson Enzo, and extended family overseas.

There will be a family memorial service at Yates Funeral Chapel 1000 Allsbrook Rd, Parksville, at 11am Saturday April 28, 2012. A reception is to follow at the Agostini residence,
