Clifford Albert Castiglione Obituary
Clifford Albert Castiglione passed away peacefully on February 28, 2020 at the age of 86 surrounded by his family. He was predeceased by the love of his life, Verna Castiglione. Cliff is survived by his four children Brenda (David), Norman (Margi), Rick (Danielle Aubry) and Randy (Marie); eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
He was born on July 23, 1933 in Drumheller, Alberta as the youngest of 8 eight children and moved to Calgary as a young boy. His career in the newspaper industry began at an early age when he had a paper route and then 40+ years as a pressman and foreman at the Albertan and eventually as a pressman at the Calgary Herald.
Cliff and Verna loved to camp and spent many summers vacations with family and friends at various lakes. Retirement brought more time for camping and golfing and many winters spent in Arizona.
Cliff became a familiar sight in Claresholm riding his bike to Granum or Stavely or walking as many days of the year as possible.
The family is grateful for the care and compassion shown to our Dad and to the family by the ICU at the South Campus Health Centre in Calgary and the Claresholm Hospital during this difficult time.
A Celebration of Life will be postponed and held at a later date. A reception will follow.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Foothills Country Hospice, Okotoks, Alberta. http://www.countryhospice.org
