George Toth, 87, died January 5, 2020, surrounded by loved ones at Scarborough Grace Hospital, after a sudden illness.
Mr. Toth was born on April 19, 1932 in Hajdudorog, Hungary, to parents Toth Illés and Szabo Anna. He was 1 of 11 children.
In 1957 he made landfall on the shores of St. John’s, Halifax and traveled to Ontario where he explored many career opportunities and developed life-long friendships.
He married Orosz Marika (Mary) on October 21, 1967. Together they raised 2 children; George and Aniko. Father-in-law to Colette (née Kerr) and Joey Nicholson. Grandfather to 3; Madeleine, Jordan and Eden. God-father to 6.
In his spare time he enjoyed watching his son play soccer, tending to his vegetable garden, his 40-year-old rose bushes, opportunities to cook collectively with his family and dear friends and building family memories on trips to Europe. He had a clear passion for cars which he instilled in his son.
He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather who enjoyed every moment he could spend watching his grand-children grow. His outgoing personality guaranteed him friends everywhere he went. He will be sorely missed.
He is survived by his wife and 2 children.
