June 20, 1951 - February 16, 2017
Flavio A. Brutesco
passed suddenly on February 16, 2017 while vacationing in Mexico with his wife Linn (née Webb). Loving father to Giulia (José); brother to Enzo (Sophia); uncle to Sarah (Joel), Daniel (Madison), and Hannah (Clinton); survived by his mother Anita (née Bravar), and son of the late Otello. Born in Venice, Italy, Flavio immigrated with his parents when he was two years old. Flavio earned his engineering degree at Carleton University and prided himself on being a problem solver. He was always jovial and took the time to talk to everyone – he loved to chat about everything and nothing. His sense of humour and the precious time we had with him will be forever in our memories. At the young age of 65, he has left this earth too soon and will be deeply missed by his friends and family. Friends are invited to join the family in a celebration of life mass at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 427 Booth St. Ottawa on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 11 a.m. Friends may pay respects to the family from 10:15 a.m. A reception will be held after the mass. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his in honour to the Ottawa Heart Institute. Thank you to Tubman Funeral Homes for their attentive care in looking after the family’s needs.
