It is with sad hearts that the Resendes family announces the passing of João Maria Resendes on September 24, 2023 at the age of 73 with his family by his side. He was the loving husband of Arminda Travassos Resendes for 49 years. Proud father to Diana (Roy) and Sandy (Maurizio). Devoted grandfather to Sophia, Arianna, Gabriella and Veronica.
He was a kind man with quiet strength, who loved his family and friends and was always ready to lend a helping hand. He will be remembered for his hardworking nature and his love of gardening and could always be found working in his backyard. He was a proud Canadian but he always kept his beloved Sao Miguel close to his heart.
His calm, happy demeanor and his loving soul will be dearly missed. We will carry him forever in our hearts. His spirit and legacy will live on through his children and grandchildren.
