Henry Sousa of Ottawa, Ontario, passed away at 66 years of age on May 13, 2022 from lymphoma cancer. He was born on June 22, 1955 in the Azores, Portugal and came to Canada when he was 2 years of age.
Henry, son of the late Armanda and Guilherme is survived by his wife Helen, children Shawn (Laura), Thomas, Emily, granddaughter Ameia-Faye, siblings Bill (Filomena), Amanda (Erica) and nephews and niece, James, Maggie and Bailey. He will be fondly remembered by all his nephews, nieces, extended family and friends.
Henry touched many people in different ways, as a husband, a father, a grandfather, an uncle, a brother, a friend, a coach, a jack of all trades, and a well-known dog whisperer. Henry always had a project on the go, he loved to play his guitar, make carvings, but most of all he loved being at home with his dogs and his family.
Henry’s absence will be felt by us all. An outdoor graveside service will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. at Hope Cemetery, 4660 Bank St, Gloucester. A private family reception will be held afterwards. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Lymphoma Canada.
