‘Milio, Dad, Papa, Daddy, Nonno, Mel … Emilio. No matter what you called Vincenzo Emilio Muzzi, we all knew him as an extremely generous and caring man. His religion played an important part in his life and that underpinned how he lived his life. Whether you were part of his family, circle of friends or one of his many clients over his 60 years of being “Emilio the Barber” he was loved and respected. As an Italian immigrant with only his suitcase to his name, he leaves a legacy of honest hard work, showing kindness to others and loving memories.
Emilio had a humorous side, a quiet side, a feisty side and a loving side. He would be the first to share anything he had without hesitation. In the spring and summer, you could find him gardening and sitting by the cherry tree enjoying the birds and nature with is dog Kramer by his side. In the fall, he was a master wine maker and spent hours ensuring the grapes matured to perfection. Nothing gave him more pleasure than sharing a good glass of vino with those he loved and cared for. The winter was time for watching hockey and cheering on his beloved “Leafs”, no matter what!
Most of all, we will remember Emilio as a man who put his family first. He lived his life to ensure that we were all taken care of and loved. He married his childhood sweetheart Raffaela and together they are the foundation of three grown children, five grandchildren, four extended grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Above all else, this is what mattered to Emilio. We will miss you and our memories will carry us through until we meet again.
