November 28, 1972 - January 13, 2020
The family wishes to announce the peaceful passing of Giovanni Canlas on January 13th, 2020 in his home, surrounded by his family. Giovanni is survived by his loving wife Mary Ann, and children Jon Carlo, Jeanna, Joshua and Jealianne. He is predeceased by his parents, Benjamin Sr and Nonita Canlas.
Giovanni started his life in Canada in 2008, where he worked at McDonald’s in Ponoka. He gained a lot of friends in that time and was able to meet the rest of his relatives in Edmonton as well. In 2015, Giovanni was diagnosed with Stage 4 Nasopharyngeal Cancer and he fought a good strong battle for those 5 years.
One of Giovanni’s favourite songs is 25 minutes too late.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Mary Ann.
