Looking for obit/death record for a friend in Padova-RIVA

Postby sjandcm » 02 Oct 2007, 23:41

Since I'm a newbie, not quite sure if anyone does lookups...

I was just informed recently that an old friend of mine, Roberto RIVA, from Padova (Pieve Di Curtarolo) died probably around '94. Apparently, Roberto's parents had sent a notice to me at my parents address. Since my parents don't know Italian, it appeared to be from a funeral home or something. Because of what was happening at that time in my life, they decided it was "best" not to tell me, for fear of upsetting me. :x Very wrong to do, however, I now am trying to find anything on Roberto, as they no longer have the paper. He would have been about 30 years old. He had 2 sisters and a brother.

any help would be greatly appreciated!

There is one Riva in the Italian telephone directory for Pieve. Hope it helps.
