MORES, Atillio “Tilly” passed away on November 14th, 2015 at 84 years of age after a lengthy stay in hospital. Tilly was born in Nelson on February 12, 1931. He left school at a very early age to find employment in order to support his family and worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway for 42 years where he made some very close friendships that lasted for life. He met his future wife Linda, in Trail, BC and they were married on September 26, 1970. Linda & Tilly were able to celebrate their 45th Wedding Anniversary this year.
Tilly loved hockey, golf, fishing and the music of Wilf Carter. He always had a story to tell or a beef to discuss about the “Canucks” or the “Maple Leafs”. Tilly was a strong man with a gentle soul and he fought a long hard battle to stay around for Linda. He can finally be at peace. We love you dad.
Tilly is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Linda; his children, Lisa (Dan) Markevich and Chris (Aimee) Mores; his grandchildren, Ethan, Colton, Alyssa and Connor; and his sister, Fermina (Harold) Bath. Tilly was predeceased by his parents Guiseppe & Evelina Mores, his daughter Teresa Mores and his sister Yones Couch.
An informal gathering for friends and family will be held at the Eagles Hall, 641 Baker St, Nelson BC on Sunday, November 29, 2015 from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.
A special thank you to Dr. Milde and all the doctors and nurses at Kootenay Lake Hospital for the wonderful care they provided for both Dad and the family. A very special thank you to all of Dad’s friends for their support and visits while he was in hospital.
