After a year long courageous and admirable battle with cancer, our beloved Conrado (Charlie) at age 64 passed away peacefully and comfortably in his sleep on Sunday August 7th, 2022. It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we write this obituary in his name today.
Conrado Aprile- Vinci, son of Salvatore Aprile (predeceased) and Carmela Aprile-Vinci (predeceased) is the third of four sons, and he leaves behind; Giovanni (John), Sebastiano (Frank), and Enzo. Conrado was born in Machiques, Venezuela, but is from Italian descent. He was fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian. He was an Electrician by trade but fisherman by passion. One of his favourite places to spend time was at his summer home away from home (seasonal resort) just minutes away from his favourite fishing hole. Conrado (Charlie) will always be remembered by his sense of humour, kind heart, love for fishing and food; but, most importantly his love for his family. Survived by his loving wife Maria Aprile and his children; Carmela, Melanie, Christina, Matthew, Taylor and Indimar.

In the words of Norman Greenbaum, Conrado (Charlie) you’re “Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky” (one of his favourite songs). May your memory be eternal. You will be missed. We love you.
