Sonyi, Gozo ( Gyozo, Victor)


Gozo ( Gyozo, Victor ) Sonyi  ( 31.01.1940 – 12.01.2024 ). Gozo was born in Yugoslavia to Zita (Bakos) and Ferenc Sonyi. He was predeceased by a younger brother Lajos Sonyi.   Gozo married Borbala Galic (deceased 2021) in January 1964. They had two daughters Eleonora (Tom) Kertesz and Elizabeth (Joe) Melo, two grand children Tommy (Yaisely) Kertesz and Katie (Jimmie) Tran.
He was blessed with 5 great grandchildren Jaime, Frankie, Mila, Liam and Jade who he loved spending time with.  The little ones always brightened up his day and put a smile on his face.   He loved to show them his vegetable garden and explain how things grew.  As a young married couple Gozo and Borbala lived in Serbia, then moved to West Germany to seek a better life, in 1974 they moved to Canada where they remained, they farmed tobacco for a couple of years and then decided to trade that in and try turkey farming with a few acres of vegetables on the side.  Every day Gozo drove to the Ontario Food Terminal in Toronto to sell his tomatoes.  He took pride in the quality of his produce.  It was a modest living but we never lacked for anything.   Gozo loved going to auction sales and buying up “treasures”.  He was a super hard worker, even after retirement he got himself a part time job to keep busy.  He loved to play cards with Borbala and their friends, and just recently his great grand kids taught him to play War, he loved it!! He enjoyed cooking and he spent many years cooking at the Hungarian Club for their various events.  In his spare time he loved to go fishing.  He enjoyed being outdoors and spent most of his time in the garden and taking care of his chickens.  You could always see him somewhere on the property doing something, he never had idle hands.  He was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone that asked.  He will be missed very much by his immediate family, neighbours and friends. May you be at peace.
Gozo requested to be cremated with no funeral.
