Silva, José Teodoro

God called José Teodoro Silva peacefully on Friday, December 4th, 2020, at the age of 79. He will be forever missed by his loving wife Maria, cherished by his children, Sandy (Ian) and Joe. Proud grandfather to Nicholas.

José Teodoro will always be remembered by his brother Joao Manuel (Lena), brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and nieces and nephews. Rejoined in heaven with his parents Manuel and Mariana. He will be held dear in the hearts of his family, relatives, and many friends both in Canada and Portugal.

José Teodoro was very proud of his roots having been born in Toxofal de Baixo. His love and skill with gardening was evident by how he managed to grow many vegetables year after year. He always had something to say, had a great sense of humour and loved to entertain others with his stories.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation (
