In the early hours of March 22, 2021, Ramiro da Costa Braga passed peacefully into the Lord's loving arms. Born on the Island of São Miguel, Azores on July 27,1931, he was a great brother to twelve siblings, a loyal husband to his predeceased wife (Maria da Conceição) a playful father of four (Rosa, Eduino, Zelia and Ramiro), who taught us all the game of dominoes and the love for the game of hockey, a loving grandfather to nine grandchildren (Dimas, Christopher, Jordan, Brandon, Sydney, Vanessa, Andrew, Gloria and Delilah) and a friendly neighbour to all. Ramiro was born in a different generation and worked hard from a young age to help his large family. He then immigrated to Canada in his twenties in search of a better life, like many from his generation did. Working his way across the country from the east coast to British Columbia building the railway, we often heard his tales of difficult days. He taught us and instilled in us the meaning of hard work. Retiring from Viceroy Homes at the age of 65, he was a hardworking, strong and honest man with a good sense of humour who will be missed by countless family, friends and neighbours. Stubborn at times and definitely set in his old school ways, his pride in his family and his home was evident to all. If you stopped long enough out front his home, you would appreciate his impeccably manicured lawn, and you would most certainly be invited to his garden and likely leave with a bag of apples or vegetables. His faith in Jesus Christ, Senhor Santo Cristo and Espirito Santo will guide his path into God's Kingdom. We will miss you Dad, and we love you. Flowers or donations would be welcomed to the Down Syndrome Association of Toronto (DSAT)
