Toronto Mayor John Tory released a statement on Wednesday expressing his condolences to those “who counted Rob as a friend and loved one.”
“Rob Ford left us far too soon and again today my thoughts are with his family – Renata and their two children, his mother, Diane, his brothers Doug and Randy, his sister Kathy and the rest of the Ford family including Councillor Michael Ford – as they continue to cope with this tremendous and heartbreaking loss,” Tory said.
Ford passed away at the age of 46 on March 22, 2016 after an 18-month struggle with a rare form of cancer.
