In Celebration of

Umberto Tony James Palermo

August 27, 1984 -  April 23, 2023

Beloved son, brother, cousin and friend, passed away suddenly Sunday, April 23rd 2023.

He is survived by his father Tony (Mairead), mother Julie (Bill), stepfather John (Clarissa) and brothers Brendan and Conor, Great Aunt Mary (Domenic) Rizzi, Great Uncle Victor Fabrizi, Uncle Vic Palermo, Uncle Renzo (Adele) Palermo, Aunt Kim Morrison and Irish Aunts and Uncles Martin (Maura) Devlin, Brenda (John) Mc Mahon, Paul Devlin, Una Devlin, Joan Devlin, Jody Devlin, Ruairi Devlin and Daniel (Nikki) Devlin and his numerous cousins in Canada, Ireland and Italy. Predeceased by his beloved grand parents Umberto and Gemma Palermo, James and Kathleen (Ken) Morrison, Larry and Marie Devlin and Aunt Sheila Palermo.

TJ aka Wheels, worked for Mississauga Transit, a job he really loved and enjoyed. As all of his friends and family can attest, TJ’s greatest loves were, besides Tania, Corvettes, Hondas, snakes and spiders. His favourite sports were hockey and fishing. He had a fascination with all things nature related. His sense of humour and fun were loved by all. TJ loved to travel but the trip he never stopped talking about (and you all know what that’s like!) with his family was his 18th birthday trip to Ireland.

Mairead and I would like to make a special mention of our cousin, Florinda Rizzi, without whom, we could not get through this deeply sad time.
