TOLDO- Anthony Peter "Tony", CM, OOnt., It is with great sadness that the family of Tony Toldo announces his passing on Thursday October 29, 2009 at Hotel Dieu Hospital, at the age of 84 years. Beloved husband of Josephine (nee Specht). Dear father of Donna and husband Tom Curlin; and Anthony G. "Tony" Toldo and wife Michele, all of Windsor. Dear grandfather of Jennifer, Lesley, Amanda, Marcus and Matthew. Dear great grandfather of 2 great grandchildren. Survived by his sister, Danila Calsavara, and predeceased by his brother, Lino Toldo (1992). Also surviving are many nieces and nephews. A successful entrepreneur, Mr. Toldo's 64 year career resulted in manufacturing holdings in three countries that employ many people, with a significant number of them in the Greater Windsor area. Mr. Toldo shared his success with our community over the years through his philanthropy. In addition to his many personal gifts to a variety of charities, the Toldo Foundation which Mr. Toldo established has donated to countless charitable causes, prominent among them, The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County; The Windsor Regional Cancer Centre; and the University of Windsor's campaign for a medical school. Among his many honours, Mr. Toldo was named a Member of the Order of Canada, a Member of the Order of Ontario and the University of Windsor bestowed upon him a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa degree. Besides his love for this community, there was nothing more important to Tony Toldo than the love he shared with his family. They will miss him dearly, especially his grandkids that knew him simply as "Papa". The family will receive friends on Monday November 2, 2009 at Good Shephard Parish (St. Gregory Site, 13789 St. Gregory Road in Tecumseh) for visitation from 2-5 & 7-9 pm. Prayers Monday at 8 pm.
