May 26, 1956 – May 15, 2020
It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Dino Brufatto on May 15, 2020 after a long- fought battle with cancer. He fought courageously and passed peacefully with his wife by his side.
Predeceased by his father (Claudio) 2016, and mother (Teresa) 2014 and is survived by his loving wife Elaine, stepson Andrew (Hailey), brothers Fred and Loris, grandsons Adyn, Eli and Noah, numerous nephews, nieces and other extended family.
He pursued employment as an Office Machine Technician in 1980 and later in construction, automotive service, and woodwork. He was known for his quick wit among his co-workers. Dino believed in treating everyone like his equal, without prejudice. He met people from all walks of life and always made time to hear their stories.
His most memorable times were being employed at the float plane base during the late 70’s in Campbell River. He made many friends and flew into numerous inlets and hidden coves along the west coast of British Columbia. Dino loved Vancouver Island and took photos of interesting places and drove many back roads. His favorite place on the Island was Oceanside (Parksville). He enjoyed exploring the Island, woodwork, archery, hiking and talking to anyone he met during his travels.
There will be no celebration of life.
The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. H. Reimer, Dr. Masuda and Home Care Support team. Donations can be made to the BC Cancer Agency or Cowichan Valley Hospice House
