February 24, 1946 – November 25, 2009
Dumitru Streulea beloved husband of Maria, passed away unexpectedly at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre with his immediate family by his side on Wednesday, November 25, 2009 at the age of 63 years. He fought hard, however lost the battle due to a rapid progressing disease. We are heartbroken over the loss of our husband, dad, brother, and friend.
Dumitru was born in Romania and came to Canada thirty years ago to provide a better life for his family. One of Dumitru’s passions was to work with copper, and he specialized in making copper ornamental works and roofs. Dumitru got a lot of joy out of helping others, whether they be friends or family. He was a man of steel and will be missed dearly.
