In memory of

Richard Masayoshi Inamoto

September 30, 1950 -  January 25, 2021

Richard Masayoshi Inamoto
September 30, 1950 – January 25, 2021
He left us quietly,
His thoughts unknown;
So welcome him Lord
To your garden of rest;
For here on earth
He was one of the best!

After a brief illness, Richard Inamoto passed away on January 25, 2021 in his 71st year with his loving wife Maria by his side at William Osler Hospital (Etobicoke General). Richard is survived by his loving brothers Roger (Barb), Dennis (Wally), sisters Jo-Anne and Susan (Paul). Predeceased by his mother Tomie (Dorothy), father Kazuo (William) and brother Akira (Bill).
Richard was a kind, loving husband to Maria (Foote nee: Di Vincenzo), proud stepfather to Michael Foote (Josée), Kathleen De Sousa (late Jeremy Artus) adoring Big Daddy to Corinna and Sydney and cherished G-Pop to Ryan and Matthew.
Family and friends mourn the loss of a very fine man, a one-of-a-kind gentle soul, whose love of family was second to none. Richard loved bowling and was a great fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Blue Jays, attending the games with passion and enthusiasm. Richard also loved his job as an estimator in the printing industry for over 40 years. His great sense of humour endeared him to everyone.
He was loved and respected by everyone fortunate enough to know him. He will be sadly missed and remembered always by sister-in-laws and brother- in- laws
Dora Pianezzola (late Livio), Bert & Rose Di Vincenzo, Joyce & Louie Frustaglio, Cristina (late John) Di Vincenzo, Eva & Roberto Lissia, Lena & Anthony Paniccia and all his nieces & nephews, great nieces & nephews, family and friends. He will be greatly missed by Rick and Jean. And of course, his co-workers at CJ Graphics & Companies.

My dearest sister and family,

My heart aches for your loss, well... actually our loss!
Richard was truly a fine, decent man. A wonderful addition to our large family. Although basically a quiet gentle man, his smile and positive attitude was contagious.

It is tragic that we are not able to give him a proper send off because of this pandemic. It is equally tragic that we are not able to be with you and your family to comfort you during this very painful time.

Mary, please know that you are all in my heart, thoughts and prayers. May the Good Lord welcome Richard into HIS Kingdom and Grant him Eternal Rest!

Your loving sister, Joyce Frustaglio

Our Dearest Sister Mary - there are no adequate words to express our grief and sadness in the loss of our beloved Richard. We can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. The fact that we can’t be with you to offer our love and support is devastating. Richard was a true blessing in our lives. He was a kind gentle soul always with a smile on his face. We will miss him terribly. A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul has ascended to heaven away from us but closer to God. Rest In Peace Richard. We love you! Rose and Bert
