BIAFORE, CARMEN THOMAS

Passed away unexpectedly after

succumbing to a stroke on Sunday, July 3, 2016 at the age of 69, surrounded by his immediate family. Words cannot describe the emptiness he has left in his family, including his loving wife of 49 years, Judy; his children Chad (Carolin) of Kelowna, Shonalie Biafore-Stadnyk of Calgary, and Carly Biafore of Toronto; grandchildren Crimson, Joseph, Lucca, Leonardo, Rozanna, Carter and Chloe; his mother Helen Biafore and sister Linda Hummel (Jack), both of Cranbrook; and large extended family. Carmen was welcomed into Heaven by his granddaughter Jacey and his father Louis.

His life revolved around his family. He was a loving, caring man who had many friends.

A private family service will be held. Should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the charity Carmen helped to found in honour of his granddaughter Jacey, “Believe in the Gold” – Run for Childhood Cancer.
