elevated gSgUF It is with great sadness that the family of João (John) Quintas Pinto announce his peaceful passing on June 30, 2022, at the age of 84. João was born on January 24, 1938, in Santa Barbara de Nexe, Algarve, Portugal to António de Jesus Pinto and Vitória Quintas. João married the love of his life, Maria Cremilde in 1958. To this devoted union was born his precious daughter, Eduarda. Together, they immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 1973. It was at the age of 14, that João developed a lifelong love of woodworking and excelled to a professional level. For over 45 years, he was a skilled wood worker and cabinet maker. The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to João. He loved spending time with his family and friends; sharing many stories and enjoying good meals together. He was fully devoted to his family and friends and would often say that his greatest joy was raising his daughter. He was an extremely proud grandfather to Lauren.
