elevated nTBuX Obituary 

elevated nTBuX It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of Antonio “Tony” de Farias Furtado on January 4, 2024. He was 91 years old. In his final hours, Tony was surrounded by the love and support of friends and family members.

elevated nTBuX Beloved husband of Ana Maria (née Aguiar Moniz) for 61 years. Caring and devoted father to Luci, Suzette and (the late) Nelson. Proud grandfather of Connor. Friendly neighbour and approachable friend to all. Survived by several relatives, including sisters Fernanda, Angelina and Berta. Predeceased by his parents, Antonio and Maria dos Anjos, and his bother Jose Luis.

elevated nTBuX An avid gardener, reminiscing story teller and “newspaper reader”, Tony was born on the outskirts of the picturesque Furnas Valley; situated on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. In 1956, at the age of 23, Tony ventured to Canada. During his first year, Tony started off in British Columbia as an agricultural worker, then made his way through the Prairies, where he worked for the railways and, by year’s end, he found himself in Toronto (The city he proudly called home for the next 68 years) where he was employed in the construction industry until retirement, became a family man and lived a very full, productive life.

elevated nTBuX  In keeping with Tony’s way of life and to keep his memory in our hearts, we ask that, in lieu of flowers or donations, you make a difference in someone’s life by taking part in at least one act of kindness — No matter how big or small the gesture. That’s what Tony would want you to do.
