James (Iames) Zanello

November 27, 1929 - May 20, 2023


James Zanello, 93, born in Treviso, Italy passed away peacefully on May 20, 2023.

James was predeceased by his parents Giulio Zanello and Alba Covre, and his brother Eugenio Zanello.

James is survived by his loving wife of 62 years Inge-Lore, his brother Enrico, his four children and their spouses (Erika, Sara and Otello, James Jr. and Yvonne, Enio and Nadeane) and 11 grandchildren (David & Kevin, Matteo, Angelica & Sabrina, Andrew, Adam, Curtis & Kristen, Rebecca & Laura).

James immigrated to Canada in 1952 seeking greater opportunities.

In 1983-84 James & Inge built their home in Salt Spring Island before moving permanently to the island in 1985 upon retirement.

In loving memory of James, a devoted father and grandpa/nonno, whose passions for gardening, cooking, winemaking, and storytelling knew no bounds. His green thumb created vibrant landscapes, his culinary skills delighted all those present. James’s love and guidance touched the lives of his family, leaving cherished memories and a lasting legacy. May his spirit continue to inspire and his stories echo in our hearts as we bid farewell to a truly remarkable man. Rest in eternal peace.
