Welcome to KORU Cremation | Burial | Ceremony

On July 19th, 2018 at the age of 90 Orlando Bossio of Vancouver, BC (formerly a 30 year resident of Kamloops, B.C.) passed away surrounded in love, with his family by his side.

He was born on July 16th, 1928 in Cleto, Cosenza, Italy to the late Gaspere and Maria Bossio. Orlando is survived by his wife Teresa and two children Maria (Joe) and Gaspere (Colleen) and adored granddaughter Cassandra. He also leaves behind many cherished members of his extended family both in Canada and Italy.  

Orlando’s greatest joy was spending time with his family and in his immaculately kept vegetable garden. His other passions included watching Formula One racing, Boxing & UFC, fishing, going to the lake,making sausages and traditional meals and desserts, decorating for and celebrating the holidays, playing bocce, being a handyman, as well as storytelling. A respectful, loyal, genuinely humble, selfless and loving soul that always put his family first; he quietly earned the respect of all that he encountered. Loved by all, he possessed a gentleness, a beautiful smile, and always had a twinkle in his eye; his presence will remain in our hearts forever.

Family, friends and others who Orlando touched are invited to attend the Funeral Mass on July 25th, 2018, 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Roman Catholic Parish – 555 Slocan Street Vancouver, B.C. , Entombment service to follow at 1:00 p.m. at Ocean View Cemetery – 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby, B.C.
