Obituary of Achille Armenti

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather.

Peacefully surrounded with his family at his side on May 13, 2022 at the age of 84 at Port Colborne General Hospital.

He will be forever missed by his devoted wife of 59 years, Olga (nee D'Uva), daughters Rosanna (Roger), Diana (Shawn) and loving grandson, Matthew Archambault. He is survived by his sister, Suora Enza Armenti (Italy), Nicolina Armenti, Niagara Falls, brother in law to Mario, (Joanne) D'Uva, Alfie (Angie) D'Uva of Port Colborne, Emilio (Gianna) D'Uva, (Italy) and his many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents, Rosina and Vincenzo Armenti, his sister Maria (Domenico) Vacca, nephews Antonio Vacca, Lonny D'Uva and daughters, Marcella and Claudia Armenti.

Achille was born in Castelpetroso, Italy on May 20, 1937 and married Olga in 1963. He worked as a Coal Miner in Belgium. In 1963, he moved his family to Canada, and worked at INCO Metals Company. He also liked construction work and even built his family home. He was on the Port Colborne Bocci team and a member of the Italian Canadian Cultural Club, where he made life long friendships, had dinners, played cards and shuffleboard. He also had many hobbies including gardening, making wine, sausage, tomato sauce and fixing things in the garage.

He was a very social person; he loved people, and people loved him. Family was everything to him, he had them over for dinner every Sunday.
