Mate Radosevic (January 26, 1934 – April 5, 2023). Forever in our hearts Mate Radosevic passed away peacefully in his 89th year in Mississauga, ON. Mate was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother. He is survived by his wife Eva (nee Pavlovic), son Michael (RoseAnn), daughter Janice and grandchildren Sophia and Jayden. Mate, fondly known as Dida adored his two grandchildren, Jayden and Sophia who loved spending time with Dida and will truly miss him. Mate was one of nine children and will be missed by his surviving brother, sisters, extended family, and friends.
Mate was born in Croatia on January 26, 1934. In 1967 he pursued his dream and immigrated to Canada with his wife. He worked hard to build the life he provided for his family. He was passionate about working and even when he retired, he kept busy with multiple projects. Mate lead a full exciting life filled with family work and friends. He will be remembered for his kindness and charisma—he charmed everyone around him right up until the very end!
Mate lived his life on his own terms and that’s what made him such an incredible person. He was an independent spirit who never settled for less than what he truly wanted out of life. His legacy will carry on in the impact he left on family and friends throughout his life as well as forever in our hearts.

Thinking fondly of growing up together with you and your family.
Mate, or Mr. Radosevic has he always will be for me, was always kind and thoughtful in his curiosity of how things were going with us through the years as we navigated our high school and university years together, and into our adulthood.
We send our warm thoughts for you Eva, Mike, Janis and your families.
Ajai, Annette, Serena and Ariana Puri
We are thinking of you Michael, Roseann and Sophie at this very sad time. We are so sorry for your loss.
We know you were very close to your dad, Michael. You looked out for him and advocated for him over the last few years whilst he was sick.
On many occasions you would fondly recount stories about your dad and how hard he worked. Your dad can’t have asked for a better son. I’m sure your achievements gave him great joy, were a source of pride and made all the hard work worth it.
He couldn’t have had a better daughter in law or grandchild in Roseann and Sophia.
What a great legacy he leaves, May he rest in peace.
Our sincere condolences
Paula, John, Tom and Oli
