Aldo Mutton

August 26, 1930 - June 3, 2020

Aldo Mutton passed away peacefully at Cobourg, Ontario, on Wednesday June 3, 2020, at 89 years of age. Aldo, beloved husband of Anna Maria Mutton (nee Varaschin). Loving father of Miriam, Gabriella and Antonella (Tom). Proud nonno of Emma and Olivia. Predeceased by his parents Ida (Marcolina nee Rui) and Carlo Mutton. Brother of Teresa, Emma, Antonio, Nazareno, the late Maria and the late Mario. Remembered by many nieces, nephews and family living around the world including Canada, Italy and Brazil. Aldo was born in Maserada sul Piave, Treviso, Italy and grew up on the family farm. As a young man he served in the Italian military and trained as a machine operator. He immigrated to Canada in 1959, meeting Anna Maria in Switzerland, and they married in Toronto. Aldo accepted a job at General Wire and Cable (Belden), settling in Cobourg to raise a family. He fulfilled a dream of designing and building a new house for his family. Aldo was at his happiest tilling the soil, planting trees and working in his vegetable garden. Encouraging his children to gain independence, he would often say the role of a parent is to give their child wings so they could learn to fly on their own. A special thank you to the loving and caring staff, medical and spiritual support teams of the Golden Plough Lodge, Northumberland County. A memorial tree will be donated by the family to a Cobourg park. Aldo will be laid to rest in his home town in Italy. “Andiamo a mangiare l’uva”.

Dear Mrs. Mutton, Miriam, Gabriella and Antonella, Our condolences on the loss of your husband/father. Our family had many fond memories of your family as kids growing up in Cobourg and of Mr. Mutton plowing his field behind our home. He produced the largest and freshest vegetables we had ever seen as kids which he routinely shared with all the neighbours! The Muttons were wonderful and kind neighbours to the Dillons and we remember all your family, and Mr. Mutton fondly. We are sorry for your loss. Joanne Dillon-McKay and family

Gabriella, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your father. It was interesting to read about his life and his many journeys. You mentioned his loves and I can so vividly remember them as a young child going over to your home, all the wonderful vegetables and him sitting at your kitchen table eating fruit, bread and drinking his wine. If you want to contact me I am in Cobourg. 905 373 2440. Please extend my condolences to your sisters. Kerri Langer (Jeffery)

My condolences on the death of your father. Aldo was a person Jim and I got to meet in Rehab and then again later with Mom at The Golden Plough. We didn't know him long but he was a gentle, lovely man. Thinking of you Miriam and your sisters and Mom. Sorry for your loss.

So very sorry to hear of Aldos passing. We only chatted a few times since meeting him and Anna but saw Aldo as a proud Gentleman, generous with his conversation and memories of Italy. dormire bene e sognare di casa.

Ron Wiebe - June 10, 2020

So sorry for your loss. I remember Aldo approaching me when we lived on Brook and saying if we didn't spray our dandelions he would pick them. 7 years and hardly ever saw one. Many great chats.

Janet Robinson - June 10, 2020

My sincere condolences to Miriam, Anna and your family. Miriam, you dad must have worked with my dad at one time while at Canada Wire and Cable on William Street. I always enjoyed talking to him when he came into the Town offices. He will be missed, and you will have many fond memories to rely on. Blessings....
