Vicente Armando Lante passed away peacefully on March 27th surrounded by loved ones. He was 92 years old. Vicente was born on October 21, 1930, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Vicente Lante and Maria Franchi. He was raised by his widowed mother and two older sisters.
After completing his studies, Vicente went to work as an accountant for the Junta Nacional de Granos, the government agency overseeing the exporting of agricultural goods. He worked there for 55 years before retiring in 1991. Vicente was eight years old when he met Haydee Esther Guirriere, the girl of his dreams, and the two would eventually marry on February 17, 1955.
In 1958, he and Haydee joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and 17 years later they were sealed in the Provo Temple. Vicente was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. By his grandchildren, he was affectionately referred to as Nono, meaning grandpa in Italian. His top priorities were family and faith.
As an early member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Argentina, Vicente was a pioneer in his own right, and he considered it to be one of his life’s greatest privileges to serve as a branch president, bishop, high counselor, and Sunday school teacher. Vicente was also a passionate soccer fan, and he was overjoyed to witness Argentina win the World Cup three times in his life.
Vicente is preceded in death by his wife, his parents, and his sisters.
He is survived by his daughter Ana Fraga, son-in-law Marcelo Fraga, four grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. Until we meet again, Vicente will be remembered for his resilience, his humor, and his kindness.
A viewing will be held Saturday April 8, 2023 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 E Dimple Dell Road, Sandy, Utah. Services will follow at 11:00 a.m.
