Farewell to Sebastiano Parolin who loved Malindi

Gentle and brilliant, lived 7 years in Kenya

12-05-2021 by Freddie del Curatolo

Another sad bereavement involves a compatriot who lived in Malindi.
The Italian community today mourns a gentleman who was always ready with a joke and a calm and kind way of dealing with everyone.
Sebastiano Parolin passed away at the age of 81, after a brief but terrible battle with a malignant tumour.
He was well known in Malindi, where he had lived for seven years. The first time he arrived in Kenya, more than 20 years ago, he immediately fell in love with it and promised himself that he would like to live there and enjoy the freedom that the country gave him. He had a good relationship with the locals and spent wonderful years in the company of his beloved Erminia and his daughter Manuela, who worked in Malindi. In those years he also had a bad accident in a Tuk-tuk, but with his exceptional temperament he overcame it with flying colours. Unfortunately, a bad disease that attacked his liver and prostate did not give him a chance.
We of Malindikenya.net remember him with affection, personally I was pleased to stop and chat with him, for the calmness and wit he showed, so far from the smallness and provincialism of many other Malindikenites. 
We are close to the pain of Erminia and Manuela and send them a sincere and big hug.
