It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of our father, Luis Do Rego Sousa, on Monday January 16, 2023.
With his sons and family members at his side, Luis went to be with our Heavenly Father.
Luis is predeceased by his father Antonio Sousa, mother Rosa Cabral, wife Maria Lurdes Sousa and daughter Susie Silveira.
Remaining to cherish in Luis memory are his loving sons Antonio Sousa (Sonia), Nelson Sousa (Naide), Robert Sousa (Teresa), Son-In-Law Paulo Silveira, and Grandchildren Monica Sousa, Miguel Silveira, Luis Sousa, Nicolas Silveira, Makayla Sousa, Jeremy Sousa, and Joshua Sousa.
Also to cherish in his memory is his Sister Valdomira Paquete (Pre-Deceased Fransisco) and Brother Manuel Sousa (Maria Dos Anjos).
He will be deeply missed by many extended family and friends as he was beloved by many.
Luis was born June 5, 1946 in Faja De Cima, Sao Miguel, Azores. He worked at Tatra Ornamental Iron Works for 40 plus years and held many positions. He was a master craftsman of his trade and his work can still be seen today in many parts throughout the city. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge and mentoring those around him. He cultivated many friendships through these years and experiences.
Luis met the love of his life, Maria Lurdes Sousa, in their town of Faja De Cima and were married on May 24, 1970. They immigrated to Canada in 1971 and were blessed to spend 44 years together, where they made many happy memories with their four children.
We have no words to express how grateful we are to all our family and friends who have been a comfort during these days. Thank you for your love, prayers, and support.
We would also like to thank the staff at Grace Hospital who cared for him during his stay, as well as Cropo Funeral Chapel for their care and guidance. A special thank you to Father Andre Lico who provided comfort to our dad in his last hours.
