My thoughts and prayers are with everyone at this time. Tio Augusto will be missed. He was a kind and warm man. I recall many visits with my avos to his house on Markham street, and many childhood Christmases there too. Always a huge smile on face! He is in a good place, playing accordion and entertaining my avos. RIP Tio Augusto.

I am so sorry for the loss of Tio Augusto. He will always be remembered as a generous, welcoming man. I remember Christmas Eves as a kid going over for our annual visit. We didn't see the family much throughout the year but as soon as he saw us it was always a big, warm greeting. He will be very missed but I know he has found peace with my grandparents. Sending the whole family our love and prayers.

My dear father-in-law who lived live on his terms will be sadly missed. From the young boy who asked his father for a few left over potatoes and a corner of the garden that he used to make money and buy his first accordion allowing him to discover his love of entertaining. To his buying his small grocery store in the hub of the newly arrived Portuguese immigrant customers who he treated as guests with a complimentary glass of wine, he never turned down an offer to help those in need. Supported by Rosa, George and Nelly they provided immigration support, job and accommodation search assistance, translation services and more at no cost. You taught George and Nelly the value of hard work, responsibility and value of service to others. You arrived in Canada with a suitcase filled with your dreams, drive and determination and built a life that touched so many along the way. Those who's path crossed yours will carry those memories as your legacy. Till we meet again. Love Ed, Megan & Blake, Adam, Daniella and little Jack.

We are filled with great sadness of the passing of our Tio Augusto. My earliest memories are of him an his dear family gathering with mine to hang out at their home or my parents’ home or taking trips to visit Niagara Falls, Lake Simcoe, etc on weekends. Back in the 60’s there were few who had immigrated which made family and friends here very close knit. And why I always considered him, my aunt and cousins closest to my heart. Tio Augusto was a generous, hospitable and welcoming person not only to me but everyone who had the pleasure of calling him friend. Whether it be casual acquaintance or long-time friend or family, he always made room at the table or invited you in for a cold drink with open arms. Joe has fond early memories of this kindness and hospitality, too. And if you were lucky he would bring out his beloved accordion and be treated to his wonderful music. You will be missed Tio, and always have a special and respected place in our hearts, thank you for the warm memories. To my Tia, and dear cousins, our greatest sympathy. May God give you the strength to get you through the toughest times, and the cherished wonderful memories bring you some joy.
