|Giuseppe Pavan and Giuliana Bellomo
were married on March 4, 1950, in Bannia, Province of Udine (now
Province of Pordenone).
Giuseppe immigrated to Canada via New York, at Fort Erie, Ontario,
on March 23, 1950. Giuliana arrived in Montreal, Quebec, on November
They moved to Windsor, where they have resided all their lives. Giuseppe
and Giuliana have two sons. Carlo, the first son, was born in
1952, and Franco, the second child, was born in 1954.
Giuseppe’s trade was that of a furniture maker.
When he first arrived in Windsor, it was hard for
to find a job as a carpenter. At that time the Caboto Club was
almost ready for the opening of their first new building. They
finish carpenters. Giuseppe went to work as a volunteer for
a few weeks. At that point he proved himself to be a good carpenter
and jobs were offered.
Egidio Barei, a carpenter himself, helped Giuseppe and both of
them started to work for Riverside Construction (R. C. Pruefer).
The owner was a wonderful German person. A few years later, Pavan
became the top man of this company.
In 1964, Giuseppe decided to open his own business, Joe Pavan Construction Company,
help of his wife, Giuliana. Mr. Pruefer helped Giuseppe by sending
him good customers. Giuseppe Pavan created a good reputation
and became a general contractor in small scale. The type of work
his company was doing was mainly good quality residential homes
In 1996, Giuseppe Pavan decided to retire. Fr. Lino of St. Angela
Merici asked Pavan for a few days help, so he continued more
and more days, bringing the St. Angela Merici Church renovation
to a complete phase with the help of many good volunteers.
Giuseppe and Giulia Pavan still reside in Windsor.
