Enrico (Rico) Michelin – Born October 24, 1933 in San Quirino, Italy. Passed away September 15, 2020 at Campbell House in Collingwood, Ontario with his family by his side. Rico is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Antonietta, his children, Paul (Cheryl) and Susan (Moris), six grandchildren, and his great friend and brother-in-law, Frank Rizzo. He will be deeply missed by his three grandsons, Justin, Joshua, and Maxwell, who were the lights of his life and of whom he was extremely proud. Rico achieved notable success in the construction industry, paving the way for his son and grandsons. He will forever be remembered for his sharp wit, infallible sense of humour, and huge heart. If you had the pleasure of knowing Rico (known as Nono to many), please reminisce on your favourite memories of him and take a shot of grappa in remembrance and celebration of his wonderful life. The family would like to extend our utmost gratitude to all of the wonderfully dedicated and compassionate staff at Campbell House. Donations to this amazing facility in his honour would be greatly appreciated.

My deepest condolences to Tony and the Michelin family. I met Rico 10 years ago when i was lucky enough to buy the unit below in Florida. What a treat talking to him and Tony and as fellow Canadian sharing the same last name as his wife, we built a friendship.
Rico your booming voice and your skills on the bocce court will be missed. Estero Cove will miss you. Rest in peace my friend.

My Grandfather was a great man! He had the patients to mentor and teach. He enjoyed sharing a laugh with anyone that would listen to him, and loved visits with family and those close to him. I will always remember when I received my license; being only 16, I was so excited when I was asked to be his personal chauffeur. For me, it was an opportunity to spend more time with my Nonno and for him it was an opportunity to spend more time with his grandson. I would drive him from project to project every day. He would share stories of his past, I would ask to stop for ice cream and we would both share a laugh when I made a wrong turn. When we would arrive on the Job site you could tell he was in his happy place. While on the job sites, I really enjoyed standing beside him and listening to him and how he spoke to the men. It was obvious to see that they genuinely had a deep respect for him, and he shared the same for them. Today I am also working in the construction industry, and more often than not someone on a job site will bring up my grandfather and ask how he was doing. Then they would say how he was such a great boss, teacher and to say hi for them. Through the time I spent with him he taught me to be patient when someone had a concern, to not be afraid to pass on what you know to others, and to treat all with the same respect you wish them to have for you. He will continue to teach, mentor and make us laugh through the memories and stories we are so lucky to share and pass on.

I love him and will miss him very much!

Justin Michelin.

So sorry about your loss. We were your neighbours on Refern Ave. George and Althea Frasca. We used to love talking to Richo over the fence and loved watching him do his gardening over the fence. We didn’t know him in his earlier days but seeing him take care of the property, he was like a powerhouse. Again we send our condolences and may that big strong man RIP. God needed another angel. He will always be with you. Take care of yourselves and stay safe xo

To: Justin and the Michelin family

Very sorry to hear about Rico's passing.

Since retiring. I quite often reminisce about my time working at Fox, especially Rico's visits. and chats about the old times and old friends

Back in the early '70s the Masonry Contractors Association used to put on various functions for membership companies

I first met Rico at a MICMCI Bocce tournament and lunch at the Famee Furlane club in Woodbridge when I was working for Twin masonry and Rico worked for D.M.S..

Somehow Rico and I were teamed up together

I learned everything about Bocce from Rico that afternoon, and that was the beginning of a long friendship.

He will be missed !
