EMILIO PRODAN, beloved husband of Danilo Prodan, passed away in Lethbridge on Wednesday, May 18th, 2016 at the age of 71 years.

Emilio was born April 29, 1945 in Pirano, Italy. He was raised at Pirano and at 19 years of age moved to Triest, Italy. He entered the Italian Military and was stationed in Rome and Sicily. Following his military service he resided in Trieste until he moved to Canada in 1971 where he married his childhood sweetheart Danila. They resided in Lethbridge until his passing.

He is survived by his loving wife Danila as well as two sons Mike and Mark. He will also be deeply missed by his special niece Loreda (Maurizio) and her family, a nephew Ganni (Erica) and their families. He was predeceased by his mother Anna and father Govakin and two sisters, Norma and Amelia.

He took particular pride in nurturing his fruit trees and caring for his garden. He was a devoted family man who always put his family’s interests first.

Thank you to Dr. Strank, the staff at Haig Clinic, especially Elaine, who looked after Emilio (and seemed to understand) for so many years. Thank you to our caring neighbours, family and friends for the food, calls and visits. Your thoughtfulness, and caring compassion is appreciated.

Emilio will be having a private service with interment at a later date.
