Mr. Vasile “Puiu” Firu passed away peacefully after a grueling battle with cancer surrounded by his family and loved ones, at the age of 57 on June 17th 2020. He was born October 21st 1962 in Arad, Romania. After he graduated university he worked as a professional engineer in a big plant. He met and married the love of his life, Vio, in 1990. After 7 years a miracle baby came into their life, their daughter Anamaria. Not too long after he moved with his family to Red Deer in May of 2000.
He worked hard for his family doing different jobs until 2010 when he started his career as a bus driver for the city of Red Deer, where he enjoyed interacting with his colleagues and patrons.
With his big heart and pleasant personality, he brightened the lives of anyone he connected with. His sense of humor and love of life left everyone around him with wonderful memories. Being an outdoor person, he enjoyed spending time in the garden, planting trees and flowers, playing with his dog Jesse and going on vacation with his family.
He lives on through his mother Maria, his wife Vio, his daughter Anamaria (Jonathan), his mother in law Viorica, his beloved uncle Dumitru and his daughter Geanina and her family, his brother in law Constantin (Codruta) and their children Dan and Julia. Adrian and his family and numerous aunts, uncles, friends and colleagues.
He was predeceased by his unborn son Alexandru, his father Vasile and his aunt Mirela, his father in law Constantin and many other dear family members.
A huge thank you to the staff on Unit 32P and Tom Baker Cancer Centre for going above and beyond in their wonderful care!
He will never be forgotten from the hearts of the people he touched
“To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven” Ecclesiastes 3:1
For anyone who would like to carry on his memory please feel free to plant a tree.
