Michele Fanelli, passed away peacefully at age 64 on January 1, 2019, with his family by his side at the Jewish General Hospital.

Michele was a caring and devoted husband of over 40 years to Mirella Fanelli, who was his pillar of strength.

Michele was pre-deceased by his father, Giovanni, and his sister, Lina. He will be truly missed by family and friends.

Born in Riccia (CB), Italy on November 12, 1954, Michele came as an adolescent to Montreal, where he received his education, raised a family with his wife, and retired in 2016 after 36 years at Purolator. Because of his deep affection for his home town of Riccia, Michele served as President of the Montreal Riccia Association for many years.

Michele will be remembered for his outgoing, generous and friendly personality. He enjoyed being surrounded by people, music and laughter.
