Obituary of Fabio Lorenzo Cavalleri



26 April, 1970 - 27 June, 2024



Peacefully and at home in the presence of people who loved him, Fabio finally succumbed to cancer.  He had valiantly battled this insidious disease for several years, winning all the battles except the final one.


He leaves behind his loving wife Jamie (nee Mashford), his children Nicky, Baily (Sierra) and Brooklyn. His brothers Danilo and his wife, Geneva and sons Leaum and Kalen and daughter Calessandra. Guido and his wife Sara, and son Matteo and daughter Elisa. Paolo and his wife Jasmine, sons Christian and Alessandro and daughter Greta. Fulvio and wife Sabrina and son Mattia. Gabriele and his wife Melanie, and son Daniel and daughters Giada and Chiara. Sister Sara, and daughter Sofia. Parents Giacomo Cavalleri and Maria Bonassoli. Parents-in-law, Peter and Joann Vidican. Sisters-in-law, Kelly and her daughter Taya. Angela Strazzeri and her husband Charlie and daughters Evangelina and Isabella and Heather Birnie and her husband John and their son Adam and daughter Kaitlyn.


Fabio emigrated to Canada in June 1995 after fulfilling his military service. He maintained a strong connection to Italy and has family members there. Some of them, including his mother, Maria, flew to Canada to be with him for his last few days.


He was well liked by all who met him as witnessed by the generosity of his work mates at Salit Steel as well as other friends and acquaintances. He loved soccer and played it well, sharing his knowledge and skill of the game as a coach to younger players. 


Visitation will occur on Thursday, July 4th from 6pm to 8pm at the George Darte Funeral Home, 585 Carlton Street, St. Catharines.


The family would like to thank the Walker Family Cancer Centre staff and medical staff for their care and the Salit Steel work family for their unflagging support.  


Fabio was 54 years old.
