Antonio Stefano Masotti
December 26, 1931 - June 23, 2019

Tony passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Health Sciences North on the Cardiac Medical Unit. He is survived by his beloved wife Eleanor (née Baldisera), his children Cristina (Quinn), Matthew (Amy), and Jennifer. He was loved very dearly by his granddaughters Dea and Alix.

Always a gentle soul who was generous of spirit, everyone who knew Tony has a humorous story to tell. He met his end with bravery, dignity and his one-of-a-kind sense of humour. He loved to be surrounded by family, enjoying a good meal, conversation, and laughter.

Tony immigrated to Sudbury from San Vito al Tagliamento, Italy when he was 17 years old to work at Inco for 17 years.

Tony then founded Cortina Pizza with his brother Vito in 1964. Together they grew it into, at its height, a franchise of 21 restaurants throughout Northern Ontario. He could always be found at the Martindale Road headquarters, greeting guests, and treating regular customers. Tony was responsible for building the Cortina boat, a beautiful tour boat on Lake Ramsey which is still in operation to this day.

He sponsored countless charities and sports associations throughout his business career. He treated his employees with respect and as extended family. He leaves this legacy of kindness and community in all of our hearts.

Tony and Eleanor were married on July 6, 1962. She will miss him with all of her heart and soul, as will his children, grandchildren, his brother Giovanni and sister-in-law Marisa, Thom Payne (father of Dea Masotti Payne), his sister Concetta, his sisters-in-law Jean McNair (Ron predeceased) and Elaine Semler (George), his sister-in-law Antonia (Vito predecased) as well as his nieces and nephews Sandra, Diana, Stephen, Eddie, Rodney, and Sarah. He joins his parents Giovanni Battista and Marianna, brothers Francesco, Vito and Louis, nephew Robert, father-in-law Victor, mother-in-law Yolanda and brother-in-law Ron in heaven. It’s going to be a party, and in the words of Tony, “Don’t be fear, Tony’s here!”

The Masotti family would like to thank the excellent care received by the nurses and physicians of the Emergency Department of Health Sciences North, and especially the CMU team, who all did their absolute best for him in the last two weeks of his life.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cardiac Medical Unit at HSN, or to St. Peter’s United Church.

Four of my family worked for Tony at one time or another. His influence has spread far and wide when I think of just the people I worked with at Cortina. We were all one big family always looking forward to the next euchre game (or possibly poker). Gatherings at Christmas or swimming at the house was always a joy. I don't know how many of us young troublemakers (yes, I was one) he kept out of jail just by keeping us busy but I will never forget Tony or his family. my thoughts and prayers are with them today. I wish I could spend one more hour at L1 listening to him lecture me about anything.
