My beloved husband, Anthony Michael Foundos, passed away in his 76th year on New Years Eve, December 31, 2020, in Toronto.
He collapsed on Dec 20 doing what he loved, cooking lamb and roast potatoes. He stayed with us for another 11 days and then passed away quietly, gently, surrounded with love.
He demonstrated his love for me in so many ways and it is on this love that I will continue to base my life. He guides me daily and, for that, I will always be grateful. Let his memory remind us to treat others with the same passion and love Tony shared with all of us.
He leaves behind so many who loved him deeply.
His wife, Lois Nield
His sons, Michael and Alex Foundos and his grandchildren Nicky, Samantha, Thomas and Sophia.
Brian and David Menzel, and their children Henry, Blake and Allison.
His daughters-in-law, Michelle, DJ, Kirstin, and Sharon.
His family and friends in Saronida, Greece.
Life goes on.....it will never be the same but he will walk beside us, talking to us, playing his music, helping, comforting. We will never be alone and we will cherish and honour him.
Memories are our roses in December and we will always have an abundant bouquet to carry with us daily.
Tony lived his life with passion, humour, generosity, caring, honesty. His presence filled a room, his voice could be heard near and far.
When my father died, my mother asked that I read this quote from Shakespeare at his funeral. She would want me to do the same for Tony, a man whom she loved and admired.
His life was gentle, and the elements mixed so well in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world,” This was a man.”
Forever in my heart,
A family gathering was held on Sunday afternoon, Jan 3, 2021 to honour his memory.
