It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Jorge, who passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family.

Predeceased by his sister-in-law Leonor (late Antonio) Oliveira and brother-in-law Antonio (late Maria Jose) Rego. He will be dearly missed by many nieces and nephews here in Canada and the Azores. Jorge emigrated to Toronto in 1971 followed shortly by his wife. They settled in Leamington in 1972 where their children joined them in 1975. Jorge enjoyed spending time with his family.
