If you’re a South Ender (or a former one), you may be interested in attending Gino Sedola’s Celebration of Life on Sunday October 26 from 1:30 to 4:30. I’ve cut and pasted the obit from the Nanaimo Daily News, since linking to this article wasn’t very easy.
GINO SEDOLA Freeman of the City, Retired Teacher, Former Alderman and Past Chairman of the Nanaimo Harbour Commission. On October 9th, after living an extraordinary life, Gino Sedola passed away peacefully while holding the hand of his loving wife, Leona Trimble. Predeceased by 1st wife Elaine; mother Christina and father Angelo. Survived by his brother Fred and family; and by his “brother by choice ”, Alvin Gallazin. Dearly loved and sadly missed by his children Paul, Anne, Janine and their families; and Leona’s children, Trish, David, Sharon, Karen, Art and their families, including numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren; and many cherished friends. Gino was a member of more than 25 committees including founding member and original director of the Nanaimo Museum Society. A Celebration of Life will be held at the New Nanaimo Museum. 101 Gordon St, on October 26th 1:30 – 4:30p.m. 147824
Gino really was the voice of/for the South End, and our leader (of sorts). He will be sorely missed.
