BORTOLON, Antonio (Tony) Gino
Wednesday, September 28, 1938 – Tuesday, August 27, 2019
It is with deep sadness that the Bortolon family announces the passing of a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle, Antonio (Tony) Bortolon. He was the beloved husband for 58 years of Mary Grace (nee Durso) Bortolon. Tony was the loving father of Nancy (Bob) and Peter (Melissa) and grandfather of Brittany, Crystal, Kyle, Aidan and Quinn. He was the dear brother of Albino (Theresa), brother-in-law of Maria (late Germano) Bortolon. He was also the brother of the late Melva, Gilda, Fortunato and Aldo. Tony was born in Ca Rainate San Zenone, Italy. He emigrated to Canada in 1958, where later, he met his beloved Mary. Tony’s joy in life was his gardening, but his special joy was his grandchildren. He was also a long-standing member of the Italian-Canadian Club.
