July 29, 1937 ~ March 15, 2023

Rafael Corcione of New Westminster, BC, passed away Wednesday, March 15, 2023. He is survived and lovingly remembered by his 3 children, 6 grandchildren, 2 brothers, family & many friends.

He was born in Naples Italy to loving parents and had 6 wonderful siblings. At the age of 21 he immigrated to Halifax but disliked the climate intensely, so kept moving west until he reached Vancouver. He settled in the community of Kerrisdale where he owned and operated a successful hair salon and raised his family. It wasn’t until he retired that he moved to New Westminster where he began a new chapter and met many wonderful friends.

Rafael had many hobbies, but his true joy was spending time at his property on Salt Spring Island tending his garden.

He was a force with an easy charm, and a true maverick who lived life on his terms; he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
