Obituary

Sol Litman has decided to hang up his carpenter’s tool belt for good. He was the beloved father of Deborah (Steve), Judi (the late Luciano), Geoffrey (Luisa) and Cynthia, brother of Joe (Mona), and Abe (Edith), grandfather of Matthew, Michael, Joseph and Kymberly, step-father of Gordie, step-grandfather of Melissa and Brendan, husband and dear friend of former wife, Sylvia, brother-in-law of Herby (June), Helen (the late Jack), and Leah (the late Henry), devoted friend of Elizabeth, lovingly remembered by many nieces, nephews, cousins and many close and devoted friends. Predeceased by his parents, Max and Rose, second wife, Irene, sister, Anne, step-daughter, Aggie, and friend, Marcia.

We will miss his dry sense of humour, quick wit and wisdom. He is a role model for many; a kind, honest, reliable, and humble person. Sol was a gregarious person who was always willing to do for others. He was well-known for his craftsmanship in making cabinets and furniture, unique jewellery boxes, musical instruments and wooden clocks, but he truly excelled at making friends. He was also a mosaic artist, champion bowler, and an expert pancake and latke maker. He was charming, a flirt and a supreme kibbitzer.

He served Canada with pride as part of the Canadian Armed Forces in Britain and Italy during World War II. He was wounded in Italy and received several medals.

Sol moved on peacefully while he slept on June 10, 2019. He would have been 97 this coming November. According to Sol’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life is planned for Friday, June 28, from 1-4pm at Peel Art Gallery, Museum & Archives (PAMA), located at 9 Wellington Street East, Brampton, ON.

“You always made us laugh.” To paraphrase Winnie the Pooh, “How lucky we were to have had someone who makes saying good-bye so hard.” Sol, we will miss you so!

Saul...a wonderfully warm, strong human being that I am so glad Harry and I had the opportunity to know at #320.

Since Saul worked with wood so beautifully and enjoyed it so much, I hope you'll agree that planting a tree in his memory is an appropriate memorial.
Very sincerely,
Carole Edgar #1009

I will miss Saul, he always had a witty saying and was always willing to fix things for anyone in the building. I loved to chat with Saul while he worked on one of his special projects in the Hobby Room. He was such a craftsman and supplied many a hand made clock for someone special, or for a draw prize at the buildings social events.
Just weeks before he passed away he gave me a beautifully designed clock which hangs on our wall to remind us of a special person who passed our way.

Dear Family Members of Sol, we wish to convey our deepest sympathies. We met Sol 2 days after we moved into the building 5 years ago. He approached us by saying " you are new to building, we have not met" from that day forward Sol always had a cheering hello and loved to share what he was doing in the woodwork shop. Sol is remembered for his kind words, great wisdom and subtle humor. We will have the wonderful memories of Sol. May you Rest In Peace my friend. Robert and Catherine Jotautas
