The family would like to thank all the staff of Credit Valley Hospital for their support and care during Antonio's brave and long battle with his illness.
Antonio had a sharp mind and was an avid student of law, philosophy and finance. He was a professional accountant by vocation and his attention to financial matters and tax regulations would've have made any auditor proud. More importantly, Antonio was happiest when surrounded by family and friends, enjoying delicious meals with fine wine and spirited conversations. His passion for puzzles, Jeopardy and the Toronto Raptors will be carried on by his family. He will be missed greatly by all who knew and loved him.
