It is with great sadness and heavy heart that we announce the passing of our father, Manuel Goncalves on Thursday December 22, 2022 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.

Born to parents Antonio Goncalves and Gracinda de Silva Goncalves on August 20, 1937 in the town of Bastuco, Portugal.

Manuel, husband to the late Teresa Vilaca Goncalves, immigrated to Canada in 1969 and is survived by his sons, Carlos, David and John, daughters in law Susan and Antonietta and grandchildren Julia, Johnny and Samantha. Manuel will also be missed by his nieces, nephews, extended family and friends both in Canada and in Portugal.

Manuel enjoyed an active social life living at New Horizons Tower in Toronto and participating in the Portuguese community.

He will be forever missed for his keen sense of humour and sharp wit. We will always love you and cherish our fond memories of the time spent together until God called you into his heavenly kingdom.

Cremation will take place and a funeral service will be held in January 2023.

Expression of sympathy donations would be appreciated to either the CNIB or Mt. Sinai Hospital Foundation.
