Our darling Adrian passed away at home on February 14, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Adrian was the whole world to his wife, Esperance, and the absolute best father to his daughters, Rochelle and Chantelle, and his much-loved dog, Jolie. We feel like the entire world was put on pause to allow us to take care of him like he always took care of us.
He is predeceased by his parents Monthu and Ledwin D’Souza as well as his brothers Urban, Dennis and Adolf D’Souza, and sister Grace Nazareth. He will be dearly missed by his sister Blanch D’Souza and brother Mervin D’Souza in Mumbai, India, as well as his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, mother-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and neighbours.
Adrian was the embodiment of love, so it was only fitting that he was gifted Valentine’s day for his departure from the world. He cherished his family and close friends above all else and always made time to spend with them and support them. With his infectious smile and joy for life, he never failed to spread love and happiness wherever he went. He was a genuinely kind-hearted, selfless, and joyful man; we will miss him fiercely but know that his memory and spirit will always be with us. He leaves an indelible mark on the hearts of all those around him. Always a man of God, he had an unshakable trust the Lord would provide, and bravely battled his cancer thanking God for his beautiful life.
As a life-long traveler, his ultimate dream was to retire in Goa among the swaying palm trees and the gentle lapping of the sea near our house, sipping a beer and eating fried fish. While he was taken too early, he still spent a wonderful month or two every year in Goa with his family.
A service will be held for him on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 11:00 am at St. John’s Dixie, in Mississauga.
