Obituary for Michael Joseph De Souza
Michael Joseph De Souza was born on January 11, 1988 and sadly left us on May 19, 2017. Affectionately known as "Junior", he was born to John and Marissa De Souza. He was a devoted brother to Vanessa Santos and Jackie De Souza, and a caring uncle to nephew Rome Santos-Alston, who he lovingly called Romie. Michael touched the lives of many, including a community of good friends, hockey teammates, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Michael attended Brother Andre Catholic High School as he grew up in Markham, Ontario. He was a goalie for several hockey teams including the Markham Waxers and the Richmondhill Stars. An avid hockey fan, he continued to play on many adult hockey teams. He most recently worked in Telecom at J-Trex Communications. He will forever be remembered for his beautiful smile, his sarcastic sense of humor, his musical talents, his detailed drawings, his support of the Maple Leafs, and most of all his sweet and enormous love for family and friends.
