March 28, 1944 - June 23, 2022
It is with broken hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved Patriarch. Remo died peacefully surrounded by his loving family on June 23, 2022. Devoted and loving husband of Fernanda (nee Silvaggio) with whom he has enjoyed nearly 50 years of marriage.
Loving father and mentor to Pietro (Darcie) Valente, Gabriel (Bobbi-Lynn) Valente and Amy-Lynn (Matthew) Sarkis. Cherished and proud Nonno to Gianni, Alessandra, Matteo, Gabriella Valente, Emilia and Alessia Sarkis.
Predeceased by his parents Pietro and Emilia (nee Capaldi) as well his mother and father-in-law Gabriele and Angela Silvaggio. Dear brother of Lina DiLuca and her late husband Domenico, Domenic Vecchione and the late Mario Valente. Missed by his brothers and sisters-in-law Domenic (Susan) Silvaggio, Ingrid (Jim) Heugh, Lina (Ron) Seguin. Also sadly missed by many nieces and nephews.
Remo was born in a bomb shelter in Sora, Italy on March 28, 1944, his father Pietro died 6 short months later. The family immigrated to Amherstburg, ON in 1955. Under almost impossible situations Remo was somehow able to found, nurture and grow Valente Real Estate into one of Windsor's most successful Real Estate Brokerages. His passions included spending time with his family, golf, land development and enjoying time with many friends from all walks of life.
He was one of the founding members of the Ciociaro club, past board member of WECAR, winner of CIPBA Family Business of the year and long standing member of Essex Golf and Country Club.
Thank you to the nurses and doctors at Windsor Regional Hospital- Ouellette Campus who cared for Remo and offered their support.
RIP to the Man, The Myth, the Forever Legend.
