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 16, 1950.

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 Pavan 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 needed 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, with the 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 and renovations.

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.
