João leaves behind many loving nieces and nephews!
João worked most of his life as a landscaper, He took great pride in his work! His garden was always immaculate and well-maintained, and always willing to offer a helping hand to family friends and neighbours with their gardens!
João was a very loving person who would greet every neighbour while walking about the neighbourhood,
Always willing to offer a helping hand when needed!
He would greet everyone when entering a full room of people, wherever it may be! With only a simple glance, João always made a child laugh or smile in his presence!
Joao also enjoyed very much his walks down to Bloor Street where he would get his daily coffee at the local bakery, he was nicknamed 75 by the locals, as that was the cost of a small coffee at the time. 
João leaves behind his beloved wife Maria Natalia Borges Quieto of 62 years of marriage, Their love was like no other, truly inspirational. He was the proud father of four sons, daughter-in-law‘s and one daughter pre-deceased at infancy.
