It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Manuel de Sousa Achadinha on March 12, 2019.  Manuel was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.  He was born in Agua de Pau, San Miguel, Azores, Portugal on December 2, 1933 and immigrated to Canada in 1959.  Family was everything to Manuel.  He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Maria Dos Anjos and is survived by his daughter, Lucy and sons, Manuel (Nomita), Carlos (Julie), and David (Catherine); grandchildren, Cheryl (Randy), Lisa (David), Christian, Helena, Mattheus, Marek, Maksim, Austin and great grandson, Dante.  His love, strength and giving spirit will be dearly missed by both friends and family.

Manuel’s family would like to thank the staff at Mount St. Mary’s Hospital that cared for Manuel in his later years.

Prayers will be held on Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 5:00 pm at Our Lady of Fatima Parish (4635 Elk Lake Drive).  A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 10:00 am at Our Lady of Fatima Parish.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Manuel’s memory to Mount St. Mary’s Hospital.

    It is with sadness as we learned of the passing of Manuel. As neighbours of Manuel and Maria for some 30 years we could see his great
    pride in his family as we watched them grow and prosper. His love for his garden was well known and his hard work produced a bountiful crop
    of vegetables and fruit every year for the family to share and for Maria to prepare her wonderful meals. Manuel’s other talent lies in the
    fact that he was a master at building rock walls which can be seen around the city. We were lucky to be beneficiaries of his handiwork in
    our own garden. We were fortunate to be friends with the family as well as neighbours and we know Manuel will be greatly missed by all
    who knew him.
