Concessi, Alfred "Fred"

Saturday, June 8, 2019, Alfred John Concessi passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family. He was a beloved husband for 67 years to Irene. Loving father of Linda (Steve), Michael (Sandy), Wayne (Pat) and Lorraine (Philippe). He will greatly missed by his grandchildren Chrissy (Mat), Laurie, Ryan (Fawn), Ben (Alexandra), his canine pal Wolfie, 9 great-grandchildren, and by many nieces and nephews. Born in Port Colborne, he was one of 7 children; the late Ann (the late Guido), Lena (the late Ermanno), the late Elio (Margaret), the late Mario (the late Eleanor), Frank (the late Margaret) and Silvio. He was predeceased by his parents Anthony and Ernestina, and his sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Rosie (Jasper), Vicky (Lee), Danny (Peggy).

Alfred was active until his final morning, engaging with family and enjoying life. His highest priority was his loving family. He loved working outdoors, wood carving with friends and following his sports teams on TV.

Auntie Irene, Wayne, Linda, Michael and Lorraine, I am sorry Steve and I couldn’t be with you today. Mom, Michael and Diane have conveyed what a beautiful service it was. We have many fond memories of Uncle Fred and in particular I have many pictures of your concrete drive being poured with my dad and Matthew on site to “supervise”. Probably around 1995. Also several of his wood carvings are still in the kids bedrooms. HIs memory will live on. Rest in peace Uncle Fred.

One of the loveliest neighbours growing up. “Mr. Concessi” always had a friendly hello and smile for us. He was a gentleman, always quiet (unlike the rest of the dads!) And, I recall a good sense of humour. Seeing he and my dad chatting over the fence was just part of the landscape!

My thoughts and prayers to you, Irene, and the family. I hope that warm memories will provide some comfort. May Fred find peace in God’s arms.

In loving memory ...
I/we pledge to make a memorial donation.

I am so sorry to read of Alfred”s passing. Having worked with him I knew him as a smart caring human being with great love and great pride of his family. When I ran Toronto Bluejays bus trips from work in the early 90″s I could always count on him buy literally half of the tickets. The baseball trips were a family affair to Alfred. May God Bless.
