ERNESTO ALFONSO LAMENZA
Ernesto Alfonso Lamenza passed away on March 12, 2018, of a heart attack in Vancouver, British Columbia at the age of 56. Ernesto possessed many hidden talents and led an unusual life marred by longstanding struggles with mental illness. Known for being a sweet yet occasionally fiendish boy amongst friends and family as he was growing up in Toronto's west end, he had the capacity to develop special bonds with his cousins which only deepened after he got his driver's license and drove them around in his father's beat up station wagon. From early on, he developed an interest in comic books which lasted until his death and was responsible for his sister's enduring love of Charlie Brown and Snoopy. He singularly befriended the family parrot who was otherwise gnarly with everyone else. He was tireless at playing rounds of Battleship well into adolescence. And he turned devouring any chocolate dessert at family gatherings into a group activity well into adulthood.
After graduating from high school with a specialty in daydreaming, he dropped in and out of university, finally graduating in 1995 from Carleton University with a B.A. in Social Sciences after winning a scholarship to complete his studies, and in 1998 from the University of British Columbia with a M.A. in Cognitive Psychology.
Unsure of what he wanted to do with his life, Ernesto bounced around from job to job and city to city working among other things as a research assistant, a travelling salesman, and an independent human resources professional. He settled in Vancouver and worked as a stock broker representing only himself. He loved to hike and had periodically organized meet ups when his state-of-mind permitted. He planned to save enough money to build himself a house in the Okanagan Valley.
Ernesto had a way of making you love him no matter what.
It was possibly due in part to his joyful cackle and in part to the embarrassment he tried to hide when he screwed up. He left behind a fiercely supportive younger sister who shares his meticulous ways, a father who wished he could have seen him just one last time and a mother who was very proud of his modest accomplishments. He will always be remembered in our hearts and in our minds.
On Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at Baycrest Hospital. Beloved mother and mother-in-law of Golda Milo-Manson and David Manson, and Michael and Mila Milo of Houston. Devoted grandmother of Hannah, Rachel, and Gordon. For service at Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel,2401 Steeles Avenue West (3 lights west ofDufferin) on Friday, September 14, 2018 at10:00 a.m. Interment at 1:00 p.m. in Beth Jacob Synagogue section of the Kitchener cemetery. Shiva at 516 Cranbrooke Avenue, Toronto.
Memorial donations may be made to The Baycrest Foundation 416-785-2875 or charity of choice.

Harvey worked for Canadian Pacific for more than forty years, completing his career as Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Pacific Ships in London, England. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Susanne, and by his family and many friends.
