Are not the mountains,
waves and skies
A part of me and my soul,
As I of them?
– Lord Byron
It is with great sadness that we share the loss of our beloved son, brother, uncle, friend, and all around amazing person, Jeff Bertoia. He is survived by his loving parents, Robert and Carole (Marsh) Bertoia, sister Kristine (Brent), nieces Lauren and Amy, extended family, and his hundreds of friends who were truly his family.
Jefe lived his life to the fullest, and made the most of every single minute. He achieved and experienced more in his 36 years here than many of us will in a lifetime. He died in a paragliding accident in Squamish, doing what he loved. We thank the Squamish Search and Rescue Crew for their dedication and service, and we ask that donations be made to them in lieu of flowers.
A memorial service will be held in Summerland at the Harold Simpson Memorial Centre on Saturday, September 21 at 1pm.
Cremation has already taken place.
