Antonio Sabucco

ANTONIO SABUCCO
June 12, 1927 – July 31, 2023

Passed away peacefully in the home that he built with his devoted wife of 70 years, Anita (nee Boem) at his side. He leaves behind his loving daughters Doretta Wilson and Janine Buday (Stan), his grand-children Brendan (Elizabeth), Natalie, and Mark (Jessica) Wilson, Elizabeth and Neil Buday, and great-grandchildren Noah, Elias and Clara Wilson. Predeceased by his parents Raimondo and Angelina Sabucco, his brothers Msgr. Ianni, Luigi, Celso, sisters Meri Pivato and Dima Bratty, and son-in-law Brian Wilson.

Tony was born in Nogaredo di Corno, Friuli, Italy. After his military service in the Alpino Corps, he followed his father’s love for Canada and arrived in his beloved country on October 15, 1950. Shortly after he founded and successfully operated Tower Masonry Contractors where he, along with his partners in business, were part of the great building growth boom of post-war Toronto. He was a long-time member of the Toronto Masonry Contractors Association and mentored many in the construction trades over his career.

Tony was an avid hunter and outdoorsman who loved training and walking his cherished sporting dogs. When retired, he also enjoyed playing cards with his buddies at the Famee Furlane Club where he was a member for many years. Thanks to caregivers Shanti and Hodan.
