Rob Ford to be Remembered at Event in Etobicoke on One-Year Anniversary of His Death
The Ford family is inviting the public to attend an event on Wednesday night to remember the life of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford on the one-year anniversary of his death.
The event titled, “Celebrate Rob Ford’s Memory,” will take place at the Woodbine Banquet Hall in Etobicoke from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Toronto Mayor John Tory released a statement on Wednesday expressing his condolences to those “who counted Rob as a friend and loved one.”
“Rob Ford left us far too soon and again today my thoughts are with his family – Renata and their two children, his mother, Diane, his brothers Doug and Randy, his sister Kathy and the rest of the Ford family including Councillor Michael Ford – as they continue to cope with this tremendous and heartbreaking loss,” Tory said.
Ford passed away at the age of 46 on March 22, 2016 after an 18-month struggle with a rare form of cancer.
Despite Ford's controversies, he is still viewed as a man of the people and greatly missed by those in Toronto.
