It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a
loving husband, father and Vovo, Antonio Furtado.
Tony was born in Ribeirinha, Sao Miguel, Azores and
came to Vancouver with his family in 1971. Tony was a
real inspiration to many. He was a hard worker and very
knowledgeable about many things. He was a handy man
and an avid gardener that enjoyed helping his family,
friends and neighbors. We will always remember him
tending to his garden or tinkering in his garage.
He was predeceased by his parents Antonio and
Maria Conceicao, and his brother Jose. He is
survived by his wife, Olivia; children, Nelson (Tammy)
and Debbie (Dave); grandchildren, Carson, Caitlyn, Chloe,
Damon, Daphne and Drea; sisters, Eduarda, Lucia and Connie;
along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In lieu of flowers, Tony has requested a donation be made
to the BC Cancer Society.
