Tragedy at Vaughan Condo
Our REALTOR® community is shocked and saddened by the tragic deaths of TRREB REALTOR® Member, Naveed Dada, Rita Camilleri and retired Member Vittorio Panza. Vittorio, Rita and Naveed were victims in the Vaughan condo mass shooting on December 18, 2022.
Vittorio retired as a REALTOR® in 2014 and was a TRREB Member for 40 years. We applaud his long service and commitment to the real estate profession. His son-in-law is also an active TRREB Member. According to his family, Vittorio was an Italian immigrant and passionate about music. He was a husband and father to three daughters and seven grandchildren. He was the grandfather of Maple Leafs player Victor Mete.
As a member of TRREB's Young Professionals Network (YPN) and a condo board member, Naveed played a meaningful role as a volunteer and was committed to the real estate profession. He tirelessly volunteered his time and served to not only help those realize their homeownership dreams, but gave back to the community in which he lived and worked.
Rita was also an active volunteer in her community and a condo board member. Her family described her as a smart businesswoman with a contagious laugh and zest for life. She loved to travel, cook and host for her loved ones, and was a loving daughter, sister, partner and the most caring aunt.
We unequivocally condemn this senseless act of violence. Our thoughts are with the victims' families and friends.
