March 20, 1938 – November 26, 2012
With saddened hearts we wish to announce the passing of Art on November 26, at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria with his wife Klara and son Rob at his bedside.
Art was born in Rimbey, Alberta on March 20, 1938 to Isobelle and Charles (“Bill”) Montalbetti.
Art enjoyed his career with the Toronto-Dominion Bank.
He was predeceased by his parents and his one sister Patricia.
He is survived by his wife Klara of almost 45 years and his son Robert of Redcliff, Alberta and his grandsons, Cody of Medicine Hat, and Cole of Brooks, Alberta, as well as nieces and nephews and his aunt Rina Montalbetti in Italy. He will be sadly missed as well by his feline buddy Chester.
Art and Klara moved to the Comox Valley in 1980. Art enjoyed gardening, freshwater fishing, camping and the fastball games at Lewis Park and Cumberland.
He will be missed. For those wishing in Art’s memory, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation; P.O. Box 1225, Comox, BC, V9N 7Z8 or the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
A gathering of family and friends to Celebration his Life will be held at a later date.
