LIUT, Adelchi 'Dick'


Luit, Adelchi
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our Dad, Adelchi (Dick) Liut. After living independently until his last weeks, this strong proud man has left this world behind 13 days shy of his 95th birthday. He was beloved husband of the late Lita Valvasori of Hamilton, Ontario, dear father of Velma Liut (Kelly Jackson), Anne Hayward (John) and Mary Ellen Hubert (Michael), proud and loving Grandpa of Erin Matthew (Colin), Tara Hayward (Perry Kirkbride), Marc Hubert, Lucas Jackson (Kaitlin), Blake Jackson and Eric Hubert (Laura Beth Wilson), amazing Bisnonno to Rhys, Gabrielle and Zoe Matthew and dear friend and companion to Patricia Scrase and her daughter Carole Scrase. He was the son of Giovanni and Maria Liut, and immigrated to Canada from Cinto Caomaggiore, Italy in 1929, at the age of 4 .Their family would settle in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario where he, together with his six siblings, Ines, (Ferti Zorzi) Tony (Gloria), Angelo (Dorothy), Sue (Elio Marzetta), Evia (Emile Desaulnier), and Lee (Lorne Jarrett) made his way in the world. Respected “Uncle Dick" to many nieces and nephews of both Sault Ste Marie and Hamilton, he understood the importance of family and supported all of us in our various endeavours. He eventually settled in Toronto with his own family where he established his masonry contracting firm and worked until his 65th year. Despite long work hours, like any good Italian-Canadian he enjoyed gardening, bowling, wine and sausage making, hockey and his beloved Blue Jays. Generous of spirit, along his journey he would gather and entertain countless cousins, good friends and kind neighbours. We are especially grateful to those good neighbours who kept close watch on our father in his later years. His strong work ethic and his kindness and generosity toward all, were his greatest qualities and are now his legacy. We will miss his stories and jokes. Friends may call the Turner & Porter Butler Chapel, 4933 Dundas St. W. (between Kipling and Islington Aves.) on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 from 3-7 p.m. A chapel service will be held on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Cremation to follow. Our father gave generously to a variety of charities that touched our family. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
