Andrew Balzan

March 22, 1942 - November 29, 2012

Tribute

It is with great sadness that we annouce the passing of Andrew Balzan after battling cancer.  Andrew is survived by his loving wife of 47 years Gracie, children Carmen (Pat), Jesmond (Lori), five grandchildren Carleen, Kelsey, MacKenzie, Payton and Reid, and brothers and sisters and their families in Malta.  He will also be missed by his in-laws, and nieces and nephews here in Powell River.  He was predeceased by his father Carmelo and mother Josephine.

Andrew was born in Malta and worked in the dockyard until he immigrated to Canada in 1969.  He worked at the mill until retirment in 1998.  He was a family man who loved spending time with his children and especially his grandchildren.  He also enjoyed spending time in his garden with his flowers.

Andrew was a strong and courageous man right until the end of his life.
