His favourite saying was “No shoes, no shirt, no problems!” He enjoyed life to the fullest and always had a smile and happy greeting for everyone. He was generous with his time and enjoyed working outdoors in the construction industry, first in Toronto and then on Manitoulin Island, Canada. Marcelo had a happy childhood in Brazil where he spent time at the mountains, on the beautiful beaches and in the ocean, surfing. His favourite sport was of course – soccer! At the age of 18 he enlisted in the Brazilian Army for 18 months where he served with honour. He then went on to study at University in Brazil and achieved a degree in business. Marcelo came to Canada after university and fell in love with his adopted country. He wanted to return to be with his precious children, whom he adored and was making plans to do so as soon as he could. Marcelo was a loving father who enjoyed every minute spent with our children. Please know how much Papi loved you, Ella, Cainan and Ada Millie. We will remember the smiles, laughter and love.
