elevated y7qwz OBITUARY

elevated y7qwz It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Amado (Sonny) Tigno, who passed away at age 82 on June 4th, 2018 in Toronto. Born May 24th, 1936 to Amado Sr. and Flora Tigno in Manila, Philippines, beloved husband of Evelyn (Villenueva) Tigno, loving father of Bernard and Lisa; adoring grandfather of Lyla, Damon, Gavin and Lauren. He will be terribly missed by his family and friends. Shortly after moving to Canada from the Philippines in the late 60’s, Sonny married the love of his life, Evelyn, and opened his own business where he sold and repaired cash registers and typewriters. It was a one-man operation, except for the summers when Bernard and Lisa helped him in the shop. He was featured in The Toronto Sun as one of the “last of his kind” in Toronto, and maintained his small, bustling storefront on Pape Avenue until he retired. Sonny was a very active member of the YMCA and practiced various forms of martial arts, which came in handy during several break-ins at the shop. He will be remembered for his endless stories, infectious laugh and generous spirit. He kept his good sense of humour right until the very end.

elevated y7qwz There will be a celebration of Sonny’s life at Holy Cross Catholic Funeral Home, 211 Langstaff Road East, Thornhill on Thursday, June 7 th . Visitation will take place from 9:00am – 11:00am followed by a funeral mass at 11:30am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at the funeral or online to the Alzheimer Society of Canada and/or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada.
