elevated CjbIG June 6, 1966 – May 27, 2020

elevated CjbIG A life cut too short, Ferdo had a zest for life and possessed numerous talents which he brought to both his personal and professional life. 

elevated CjbIG Born in Ljubuški, Hercegovina in 1966, he came to Canada at the age of 3.  He attended Western Tech High School in Toronto and became part of a group known as the Fabulous 5.  It was during his high school years that he discovered his talents in both sports and construction.  He followed his passions and while he didn’t get to play professional sports, he enjoyed them all in his spare time (Football, Hockey, Golf, Soccer, Tennis, and his all-time favourite:  Fishing!).   Throughout his professional career, everyone he had ever worked with had great things to say about their experience.  He always said that there’s only one Ferdo in Canada and when you met him the first time, you would remember him always.

elevated CjbIG Ferdo met the love of his life Kathy when they were teenagers and married several years later.  He is survived by wife Kathy, children Nicholas, Mikaela, David and Adam, brothers Zdravko (Bruna), Zeljko (Irene), parents Nevenka (Herceg) and Milan Pavlovic, in-laws Ljubica (Vinski) and Branko Muich, and Boris Muich, nephew Anthony and niece Maria, along with Godson Michael, several kumovi, aunts and uncles as well as cousins.  Everyone who knew Ferdo has a story of his considerate and helpful nature, his warmth, sense of humour and positive attitude.  We will all miss his love, stories, laughter and are so grateful for the time we had with him.
