Luigi Pagani

August 12, 1929 - July 6, 2014


Our hearts ache as we announce the passing of Luigi Pagani. Those left remembering this remarkable man and his journey are his wife Rosa, children Roger (Sherry), Robert (Noelle) Sandra, grandchildren Cleaven (Alisha), Brandi, Chayla (Erik), Raeann, Rosalea, Dalton, great-grandchildren Mia, Eli, Zoey, Cooper, Evan and Nyah, siblings Albert (Edie), Ana Prosperi-Porta, Mary (Silvano) Nadalini, Delfina (Ed) Frausel and sister-in-law Tina Pagani.

Luigi leaves behind a true legacy. In 1950, at the young age of 20, Luigi and his father Agostino struck out in search of a better life. They boarded a ship from Italy and arrived in Canada. Brother Albert joined them one year later, leaving behind their mother Maria, siblings Ana, Mary, Peter and Delfina. Onward they travelled to Vancouver, sponsored by Agostino’s brother Tony, where they worked to bring the family from Italy to Canada.

Luigi worked in Vancouver at Paris Boots until he joined the rest of the family in Powell River in 1952. There, he continued his craft as a cobbler and began Pagani and Sons Shoes. In 1961, he married Rosa Briganti and began his family.

As we remember Luigi as a husband, father, grandfather, and “shoemaker”, we are reminded of 1 Corinthians 13: “Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs…It always protects, always loves, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.”

Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,

May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.

Predeceased by father Agostino, mothers Angela and Maria, brother Peter and brother-in-law Giuseppe “Joe”.
