October 12, 1957 ~ January 15, 2016

The family of Carmelo (Melo) is deeply saddened to

announce that he passed away suddenly, but peacefully on January 15, 2016 in his home, in Armstrong, British

Columbia.  Melo was dearly loved and will be greatly

missed by his children: Joseph and Christina Napoleone.

He was also survived by his grandchildren: Kierra and Roman Napoleone; parents: Serafino and Carmela Napoleone; siblings: Grace (Rick) Kirton, Sebastiana (Kim) Hartness, Santo Napoleone, Aldo (Linda) Napoleone, Linda (Manuel) Dal Cortivo and by his many cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.  


Melo was born in Catania, Sicily, Italy on October 12, 1957.  In 1963 the family moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba. In the mid 1980’s Melo settled on the West Coast and then eventually came to the Interior of British Columbia.  Melo loved his

children very much and everything he did was for them.

He was an avid outdoorsman spending endless hours camping, fishing, and telling stories about the “big one”

that got away.  We will all hold fond memories of the

good times we had with Dad/Melo in our hearts forever.


As per Melo’s request there will be no service. The

immediate family will have a private gathering to visit his

favorite fishing spot where he loved to take Joe and

Tina when they were young.


In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation in memory of Carmelo Napoleone.
