In Loving memory of Gil Da Silva. Born August 22nd, 1939 in Lomba da Maia, S. Miguel and passed away on March 27th, 2021 to join his beloved wife Maria Jose Da Silva. They are together again, now in the presence of our Heavenly Father. Although his profession was to build houses and communities, the most important foundation he laid down was in his children. He taught us the importance of love and of family. These are the most valuable things we have here on earth.  They are to be cherished and never taken for granted. Grief never gets smaller so our love must get bigger and this is how we choose to cope with loss and celebrate life.

Due to the current Covid - 19 restrictions in Toronto that allow a maximum number of guests to attend a funeral, the service details will be kept private and attendance will be by invite-only.

The family thanks you for your support and understanding during this challenging time.

It's great sadness that your father left us and did not have the chance to see his family for longer time. Keeping alive and cherishing the very good times, and all memories gathered together with your father as a family, is what will make his spirit live further in eternity. He will be very proud of having such thoughtful and caring children. Please accept my deepest and most sincere condolences and may the soul of your father rest in peace. God bless him and care for his children and their families.
