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.
