He emigrated to Canada in 1961 to prepare a better life for his family who joined him in 1963. They settled in Toronto, and have lived at the same home ever since. He worked hard throughout his life as a farmer, construction worker, and caretaker until he retired in 1992. Shortly afterwards, he and Maria Olivia spent many happy times together vacationing in Mexico, Dominican Republic, and throughout Europe. Antonio livened up every family get-together with his quick wit, wisdom, and wonderful stories.

Antonio will be missed so profoundly, but his family will always cherish their many incredible memories of him.
