Our beloved father, Francisco passed away peacefully on Easter Sunday, April 9th, 2023 at the age of 88. Loving and devoted husband of the late Rosa for 37 years.

Adored great-grandfather of Leonardo, Isaiah, Malachi, Cora, Briar, Thor, Ryker, Jovan, and the late Brianna. His family and friends will sadly miss him.

Francisco and Rosa immigrated to Canada in 1973 to give their children a better life and settled in Brampton, Ontario. He was a hard worker who was known for his integrity and led his family by example, living an honest life as a devout Catholic with his family as his priority. He was a passionate gardener who loved to plant a variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers in his gardens, which he loved sharing with his family and friends. He also loved sharing stories of his life and was well known to all with his simple greeting that has emanated across generations: “Hello, my friend!”

His greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially celebrations when all were gathered together.

18 de maio de 1934 - 9 de abril de 2023

Nosso querido pai, Francisco, faleceu em paz no último Domingo de Páscoa, dia 9 de abril de 2023 com a idade de 88 anos.
Amado e dedicado marido da falecida Senhora Rosa por 37 anos.
Orgulhoso e amado pai de 7 filhos: José, Natalino (Natalie), Helena (Jim), Grace (Peter), Victor (Fernanda), Johnny e Sandy (Martin).
Estimado avô “Vovô Chico” de seus netos: Melissa, Jessica, Nicole, Amanda, Ryan, Jaime, Cassandra, Stephanie, Christine, Angelica, Juliana, Tiago, Eliezer, Alyssa, Aliana e Nathan.

Ele nasceu em São Miguel, Açores, em 18 de Maio de 1934, filho de José e Maria do Espírito Santo de Melo. Ele é o irmão de Antônio e dos falecidos irmãos e irmãs: Arnaldo, José, Maria, Clotilde, Hermenia, Virgino, Lourdes, Gabriel e Teresa.

Francisco e Rosa migraram para o Canadá em 1973 em busca de uma vida melhor para os seus filhos e se instalaram em Brampton, Canadá.
Francisco foi um trabalhador esforçado, conhecido pela sua integridade e por conduzir a sua família através do exemplo, ao viver uma vida honesta como um devoto catolico e tendo a sua família como principal prioridade.
Ele era um jardineiro apaixonado por plantar frutas, legumes e flores em seu jardim, os quais ele amava dividir com a família e os amigos.
Ele também amava contar histórias da sua vida e era conhecido pela sua simples saudação “Hello my friend” que atravessou gerações.
Sua maior alegria era passar tempo junto com a sua família, principalmente durante as festas onde todos estavam reunidos.

Família e amigos estão convidados para visitar a Casa Funerária WARD, dia 14 de abril das 2 às 4 da tarde e das 6 às 9 da noite.
