Obituary for Antonio Sousa

SOUSA, Antonio Figueiredo - It is with broken hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Antonio at Cambridge Memorial Hospital on Friday, February 9, 2024, at the age of 78. Loving and devoted husband to Maria “Freitinhas” Braga Sousa, who together shared 54 years of marriage. Cherished father of Aura Santos (Helio), Manuela Hollinger, and Miguel Sousa (Sandra). Dear grandfather of Mara Couto, Diogo Santos, Landis Hollinger, Lennox Hollinger, Kaia Sousa, and Teja Sousa. Loving great grandfather to Ariana Couto and Afonso Couto. Dear brother of the late Jose Figueiredo Sousa (Maria do Carmo). Antonio will be sadly missed by his many nieces, nephews, cousins, great nieces, and nephews, extended family and friends in Canada, USA, and Portugal. He is predeceased by his parents Antonio Sousa and Conceicao Figueiredo. Antonio immigrated to Canada in 1990 with his wife and children for a different life. He worked briefly in construction. Antonio loved playing cards (sueca), dominoes, and was known for being a big “jokester”. He loved to laugh and make others laugh too. He also loved spending his summers back home in the Maia, Santa Maria where he enjoyed his oceanside home. He also thoroughly enjoyed being an avid fisherman and bringing home “the catch” of the day, as well as spending time with his family. Thank you to the nurses and staff of Cambridge Memorial for your care in his final moments. Resting at Corbett Funeral Home where family and friends will be received on Wednesday February 14, 2024, from 5-9p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic Church, Elgin St. S., Cambridge, on Thursday February 15, 2024, at 10a.m. As an expression of sympathy, donations made to the National Heart and Lung Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
