Together they farmed east of Warner and Faye pursued her nursing career at the Milk River Hospital.

On February 26, 1985, their dreams were fulfilled when their 2nd son Tyson was born. Their family was complete.
Through the years Faye was the boys most avid fan in whatever sport or activity they pursued. How she loved to watch them grow up. Hockey games were at the top of the list.
Faye loved to see the signs of spring and enjoyed seeing the new-born calves and loved their family pets which included many cats and dogs over the years. She enjoyed annual trips to Whitefish, Waterton, and in recent years, train trips to Lacrosse, Wisconsin to visit uncle Teddy and Amy.

"Tino" was born on May 22, 1927 in Blairmore, Alberta to Giovanni and Maria Catonio. He was raised with a strong work ethic and devotion to family, faith and community. He followed in his fathers footsteps by working diligently at the familys grocery store and later opened his own grocery store in Blairmore.
Tinos heart was captivated by a lovely young lady, Mary Pozzi, and they pledged their love in holy matrimony on August 17, 1957. They were further blessed with a family of their own. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend.
Tino was a member of the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks, the Crowsnest Pass Curling Club and the Knights of Columbus. He was instrumental in the construction of the Albert Stella Arena and the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church and he was party to former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeaus visit to the Crowsnest Pass. His passion and resolution were extraordinary and in our eyes, there was no challenge too great or obstacle too high for Tino to overcome; at the age of 64 years, he climbed to the top of the Crowsnest Mountain.
Tino had a strong will, a stronger opinion on politics and sports and enjoyed a good spirited debate. His loyalty to his favourite sports teams was well known in this area. We would be remiss if we did not mention his Calgary Flames, Calgary Stampeders, New York Yankees and the Oakland Raiders. His competitive side was fierce and his zest for life even more so. Tino and Mary enjoyed their vacation home in Mexico for the past 23 years. They also spent many enjoyable hours landscaping their yard and gardening. A long life of hard work, may he find eternal peace and happiness at the banquet table in heaven.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Mary Catonio of Lethbridge; his children, Francine Catonio of Surrey, BC, Colin (Laurie) Catonio of Lethbridge and Gerald (Michelle) Catonio of Calgary; his grandchildren, Chantel Begley, Brittany Catonio, Ashlee Catonio, Trista Catonio, Ciana Catonio and Natalia Catonio; his brother, Francis Catonio of Lundbreck; his sister, Anne Hansen of Regina, SK; as well as numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.
He was predeceased by his father, Giovanni Baptista Catonio; his mother, Maria Antonia Catonio (nee: Accili); and his siblings, Steve Catonio, Albert Catonio and Teresa Bitzer.
The Funeral Mass was held on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 3:00 pm at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church with Fr. Thomas Vadassery, Fr. Vincent Ha and Rev. Renso Castellarin officiating. Cremation followed at Fantin's Funeral Chapels private crematorium.

I think of you often and will to the end.
Gone and forgotten by some you may be,
but dear to my memory you ever will be.
Youre not forgotten, father dear, nor ever shall you be.
As long as life and memory last
I shall remember thee
