It is with profound sadness that we mourn the passing of Demetrio Sposato on February 5,2021 at the age of 57. Just like he dealt with all experiences in life, he managed his illness with strength and grace and wanted to spend as much time with his loved ones as possible. On his final days, he was surrounded by his wife and daughter, whom he adored more than anything else in the world.
He is the son of Damiano and Francesca. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Roxanne, Daughters, Brittnie, Nicola, Althea and Natasha. He will be forever in the hearts of his grandchildren, Matteo, Nicolet, Leyhen, Ashanti, Damauni, Dasani, Adin, Ezekiel, Milan and Joshua, Sister, Mary (Tony), Brother, Frankie (Ida), Nieces, Christina and Amanda and Nephews, Damiano and Alfonso.
Demetrio was born and raised in Toronto and worked as a custodian for the TCDSB since 2006 where he built many memorable friendships and was very well loved.
Anyone who knew Demetrio knew he was the kindest person with a heart bigger than the world. He would take the shirt off his back just to see you smile. He was the kind of man who put everyone else’s happiness before his own- the most kind, care free person who made the best of everything. No matter how tough things could have ever got, he lived everyday to the fullest and with the most happiness. So many are lost without him as he was number one to so many. He always lit up every room he stepped foot in. He loved driving around sightseeing, bopping to his many favourite songs while of course enjoying his smoke and no one could ever take that from him. He always kept himself busy with a new project, finding something to build or fix. He loved going to the casino and playing his favourite slots and when he wasn’t doing that he was visiting his favourite auction down the road and spending his days finding what he could fill the house with- he would be so excited to send us photos of all his new toys and all his amazing find for the day and then he’d call us all over to come pick what we want. He was always making us laugh. He was the most spontaneous and adventurous man you’d ever meet, always ready to just get up and go do it now no matter what time it was. All the kids cherish his famous song that he’s been singing for 31 years “I don’t like you anymore” “I’m going to shoot you out the door”, which he knew would make us laugh even when we were crying and hours before he rested his eyes it was sung to him. His love was unconditional and will be remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. He has given us all so many memories to cherish and for that we thank him.
