In Celebration of

Elia Toffi

July 24, 1933 -  May 17, 2020

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Elia, beloved husband of Patricia Martin, father to Kathryn, Carolyn and James Quesnel, Laura and Robert Crockett, grandfather of David and Marc Quesnel and Anne and Sean Crockett, and brother of William.

Elia retired as principal for the MCSC in 1991. In his retirement, he pursued his lifelong interest in music with the McGill ILR.

A private celebration of his life will be held.

“To live in the hearts of those we love is to live forever.”

Dear Papa,

You may not be here with us anymore, but I would like you to know that the memories we shared together will always be cherished, your wisdom will guide us in times of uncertainty, and your spirit will always be by our side each step of the way of this journey so-called life.

Love Marc

So sad to hear about your father. I have such good memories with your dad and sharing babysitting duties with him. He was such a good papa to his grandchildren.
