Valentino “Robert” Sacco passed away on Saturday, January 23, 2021 at the age of 58 years.
Robert was predeceased by his mom Peggy Bradley just last month. He is survived by his father, Antonio Sacco; two brothers, Paul (Carol Grbavac) Sacco and David (Anita) Sacco; niece, Melissa (Ty) and nephew Sheldon (Karina).
Rob was born and raised in Calgary, attending Van Horne Vocational School. Despite being born with Cerebral palsy, it never deterred him from fulfilling his ambitions and dreams. Rob lived his life to the fullest and created many memories. His brothers have fond memories of his adventures to Strathmore, Standard or wherever the wind would take him that day. He loved fast cars and enjoyed riding shotgun because he couldn’t shift a 4 speed. Rob was a strong advocate for the Cerebral Palsy Association. He took part in disabled skiing and many other activities. Rob’s disability never prevented him from living his life. He faced many challenges head on with tenacity and never quit until he succeeded.
Rest in Peace our son, brother and friend.
