Obituary Overview

In Loving Memory


Suddenly on Friday, November 12, 2021 we lost our dearly beloved, Basil Joseph Cultrera. Basil was born in Toronto. He is predeceased by his parents Margaret and Ross Cultrera and his sister Kathleen Catalano. He will be forever missed by his wife of 47 years Donna, his nephew Marc Catalano, Sam, Jacob, Chelsey, his niece Lisa Catalano, mother-in-law Sheila Lamont, Heather and Thor Jepsen and their family, as well as many, many friends.
Basil enjoyed life to the fullest, from his days with Seal Top Paving and Construction to his Formula Honda Dealership, where he shared his passion for cars, racing and his love of his 1969 Corvette. He even had the opportunity of meeting Mario Andretti and Paul Newman on his many trips. He had travelled the world to Mexico, Italy, England, Ireland, Scotland, Newfoundland, British Columbia and more recently golfing in Cape Breton. We wintered in Florida, where we enjoyed life in the company of our new friends. His cottage in Muskoka was his true love. From tinkering with his boats and golfing with his many friends, to telling tales of times gone by on Fenns Point. We all love you Basil.
If desired, donations in memory of Basil may be made to the Salvation Army or the Ontario SPCA Humane Society.

Basil was a great guy and friend. Fantastic memories both on the field and off. The guy was immensely generous and for sure the mould from which he was cast no longer ger exists. Many marvellous memories of fun times at his lodge in the lakes.Rest in peace my friend.

Well Baz, I miss you already … your strength, support, and courage on the rugby pitch, and our laughs after the game. You’ll be in good hands up there with Bernie, Stafford, Eddie, and all the guys, putting together a great Beach side. I know you will fit right in. You’ll soon have a full 15. Happy trails old pal.
