BIANCHINI, Luciano 'Lucian'

March 15, 1929 -  February 19, 2016 was born in Bologna, Italy. He worked as Head Librarian at Mount Saint Vincent University and was highly involved with the Italian Community. Upon his retirement, he became President of Veritas Society.

Luciano is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Therese; by two brothers in Italy, Valentino and Aristide; by one brother in Australia, Dino; and by his extended family and friends. Luciano will always be remembered for his steadfast faith and for his love of the Church, for his gentle smile, his whispering voice, for his love of wine making and enjoying the fruits of his labor.
