Mitch Aziz

Death Notice

Aziz, Elias Mitchell ("Mitch") - Passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, June 15th, 2010 in his 81st year. Beloved husband and best friend for 55 years of Barbara Anne Aziz (nee Henderson). Much loved father of Bill and Debbie Aziz, Michelle and Eli Faysal, Bob and Anne Aziz, Mary and Ryner Stoetzer, Margaret and Dunc McLellan and Brian and Dani Aziz. Proud Papa of Katie (Shaun), Steven, Mitch (Brandi), Dave, Ben, Brittany, Kelsey, James, Daniel, Claire (Dan), Jillian, Tina, Emily, Alexander, Anthony, Abbie, Billy, Douglas, Jake, Charlotte and Eliana. Great Papa of Chloe, Mia, Noah, Ramius and Jacob. Brother of Victor/Florine (both deceased), Fred/Gladys and Sylvia/Don McGeein (deceased). Brother-in-law of Mary/Ed Yurek, Peter/Sandra Henderson, Carol/Kevin Morkin (both deceased), Jean/Stan Harrison (both deceased), Ed/Bev Henderson, and Margaret/Clair Sceli. Mitch will be sadly missed but lovingly remembered by his many friends and relatives. He was a fantastic friend to many and it showed in the enduring and many friendships he formed and nurtured his entire life, from his long time best friends Eddie and Betty Escaf to Shirley Hackett his good friend at Amica. Mitch was born in London, Ontario on January 15, 1930 into a large extended family. He lived a full and happy life in the only city he knew as home. Mitch told many great stories of growing up as a young boy on the back of his father's fruit truck for the Aziz Fruit Company, then as a young man working as the chauffeur for the Harris family at Eldon House, then on to the army reserves and finally University. A professional chartered accountant, Mitch worked hard his entire life and enjoyed every minute of what he did. A devoted family man, he was passionate about everything he did. He was a Kiwanian who was proud to help those less fortunate than himself. Ringing bells at the market, and selling maple syrup to raise money for the needy were his two favourite Kiwanis activities! Mitch always had a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye and a joke for anyone willing to listen. Known as "Fast Pass Papa" for his ability to get his grandchildren to the front of the ride line at Disney World, we are certain he has gone straight to the front of the line at his new destination. He is gone from our lives, but not from our hearts. In keeping with his final wishes, Mitch's wish for all of us is to "live long and prosper!" He did both. Our thanks to all of the staff and friends at Amica at London for providing many happy memories for Dad this past year and the staff at University Hospital in London for their care and compassion. Donations to the McCormick Home Foundation or London Health Sciences Foundation in lieu of flowers would be greatly appreciated. Visitation at James A. Harris Funeral Home (220 St. James St. at Richmond St.), Monday, June 21st, 2010 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. Funeral Mass on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010 at 10 am at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church, 511 Cheapside St. at Maitland.
