Obituary

Obituary for Dino Maniago

It is with great sadness that the family of Dino Maniago announces his peaceful passing on February 15, 2020 at the age of 87 at his home in Burnaby, BC. Dino was born in Trail, BC on August 19, 1932 to Attilio and Norina Maniago. He was predeceased by his parents, his brother Walter and sisters-in-law Jackie and Mavis.

He is survived by his loving partner of 22 years, Diane Atkins, her daughters Kelley Law and Lori Atkins, his children Tony Maniago and Carla Clarke, their mother Janet Maniago, 4 grandchildren: Alex and Anthony Maniago, Jakob and Ashley Clarke, Kelley’s children Christopher Owen, Cameron and Madison Law, and his brother Cesare Maniago. Dino will also be lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins and lifelong friends.

Growing up in Trail, Dino was a member of the Trail Maple Leaf Band playing the trombone and he showed great athletic ability playing hockey. From 1950-1953 he played junior hockey for the Medicine Hat Tigers and the Edmonton Oil Kings. At the same time, Dino worked at Cominco in Trail and received his apprenticeship in masonry. By the late 1950’s, he had started his own company, Acme Masonry, which went on to be one of the largest masonry contractors in BC. His true labour of love was building, brick by brick, and being one of the original owners of the Villa Hotel. His company went on to be involved in the construction of many buildings throughout BC and many of BC’s landmarks such as the Pacific Coliseum and BC Place. For many years, he served as a Board Member on the BC and Canadian Masonry Contractors Association.

Those who knew Dino will forever remember his larger than life personality, his ability to hold court for his neverending story telling on every topic imaginable. He had a love for food and wine and could often be found with his close friends at Dario’s.

He was very proud of his Italian heritage and was a longtime member of the Fruilano Club.

A Celebration of Dino’s Life will be announced at a later date - at the Italian Cultural Centre Society, 3075 Slocan Street in Vancouver.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to KidSport British Columbia at https://www.kidsportcanada.ca/british-columbia/

As a member of the Ermacora side of our shared family heritage...I am sad we have lost our Dino. He was a pillar for all of us. We enjoyed many stories and his huge personality. Dino loved all of us, especially his family.

So sad to hear of Dino's passing. Have not seen him in many years but he was not a person you can forget. His contributions to the masonry trade are certainly a well deserved legacy. What a hospitable person Dino was, never mattered who were you are, he treated everyone like you his best friend and made you feel like it. My condolences to the family and prayers that God will bring peace and comfort in this difficult time.

Dino…..what can I say about this very special man. He was a very tough man when it came to business as I learned, but as I looked back on him all he did was taught and prepared me for success in every aspect of my life. Yes he was tough on me at times but deep down inside all he was doing was giving me the life lessons that I need to grow into the person I have become. I am so grateful to him for giving me the confidence to believe in myself in what I do. He taught me that you will always get back what you put into what you are doing. If you don’t put in then you will never get anything back. He was a brilliant man in what he did and accomplished in his life time, but most of all he taught us all how to live life to the fullest each and every day. My deepest condolences go out to all the family at this time of sorrow. This very special man will truly be missed
