Anibal will be missed by many nieces, nephews and extended family in Canada, Portugal and France.

Anibal had an adventurous and full life. In 1957, he immigrated to Canada from Portugal, hoping to build a better life for himself and his family. He worked hard at achieving every opportunity he was given by always keeping his goal of a better life in mind. Anibal was a generous man, always helping others accomplish their own goals along the way. Most of all, he cherished his family and was happiest with his grandchildren around.
