Born May 27, 1944 in Povacao, on the island of S. Miguel, Azores, Portugal. Left us suddenly on Jan. 15, 2004. Moved to Canada in 1971 where he worked at Skeena Sawmills and CNR. Beloved husband of Carmen, proud father of Kensey, Mike and Kevin, father-in-law to Kim Duarte and grandfather to his greatest joy Johnathan.
The Duarte family wish to thank the many people whose love and support helped us cope with the sudden loss of Antonio. Your acts of kindness serve as a lasting tribute to the kind of man he was. Always smiling, often joking, never complaining even when he had much to complain about. He will be greatly missed by the many people whose lives he touched.
The Duarte’s especially wish to thank Dr. Fourie and all the doctors and nurses at Mills Memorial Hospital, the Knights of Columbus, Father Terry and the Sacred Heart Parish community, Pastor Mike and the Rock Christian community, whose prayers gave and continue to give us the strength to carry on. All our close family and friends and everyone who brought food, flowers and comfort in the days following Antonio’s death.
The support of all these people will not be forgotten. We love you all, and we will all miss Antonio.
Until we see you again, husband, father, grandfather.
The Duarte Family
