Antenello family, our fond memories of Uncle tony will continue with us, he was the big tall guy who always made us feel special with that smile of his. Although we only saw each other occasionally at weddings and funerals, he was the one we always looked forward to seeing. The angelo family is very sorry for your loss.

Dear Family: I had the priviledge of working for many years with Tony at Sheffield Rd. His laughter filled a room. He was so kind and I will remember him as he is seen in your photo of him...always smiling. I'm hoping fond memories surround you all at this time. Lenore Horton

Mel, as I always heard him referred to, was my great uncle. His brother Enso was my grandfather. Although I never got to meet Mel I always heard a lot of great things about him from my family. One story my grandfather used to tell me was about when they were kids. They both loved to play hockey but couldn't afford equipment. So, they would strap phonebooks to their legs and take turns playing goalie. I loved hearing about their lives when they were young. My sincerest condolences to your family. My thoughts are with you all.

To my "gramps". You lived a life that has given me so much to live up to. Kindness. Honour. Love. Humility. Compassion. What an amazing mentor you were. And always will be. I will carry everything I've learned from you for the rest of my life. My son has Amelio as his middle name, and only now, at just over 4, is he starting to ask why. And whenever he does, my response is the same: Your middle name is Amelio because it belonged to my grandfather. A great man. Someone your daddy looks up to. Someone everyone admired and respected. Someone I cherished and loved very much. Someone I feel lucky to have in my life for so long. He is an example of the kind of person I want you to be. Thank you gramps. The 100 years you lived were a gift to us all. And now, I hope you can rest in peace with my grandmother. I bet she has a nice big bowl of rigatoni waiting for you. I love you very much and will miss you always. your grandson, Matt

Dear Roma and Family: So sorry to read of Tony's passing today. Don and I were just talking about him this past week and wondering how he might be doing. What a wonderful human being your Dad was. He was a such a delightful neighbour, always so kind, friendlly, and willing to lend a hand if needed. Don and I both missed your Mom after she passed, and now your Dad has gone to be with her. They were so devoted to one another - where Rita was, Tony wasn't far behind. I used to enjoy their company during the summertime months, 5when they would sit out front chatting with everyone. He lived a good long life, and I know how the family will miss him. I am sure, too, that you will all have wonderful memories of your parents. May God bless you and the whole family, Roma. Most sincerely, Gail and Don MacDonald.

Our deepest condolences. Your dad and grandfather was a wonderful man. He was loving, caring, humble, funny, appreciative, happy and sincere. He had lived 100 years just as he had hoped and touched so many people with his positive energy. Leo and Linda

I first met Tony and his daughter, Roma, about 7 years ago when my mother passed away. We became fast friends and the times we have spent with Tony, Roma, Greg, Kelsea and Stu over the years have been among the most meaningful in my life. My husband, Dominic, and I loved Tony very much - a gentle man with a big heart and the most beautiful smile ever! Our thoughts are with the entire Antonello family. I know you will have special memories of Tony as he lives on in your hearts. Thank you for sharing Tony with us. We will never forget him. Love to all of you. Pat, Dominic and family.
