TORONTO - The battle with depression was one Christopher Peloso wouldn't win, former Ontario deputy premier George Smitherman told a crowd at his late husband's memorial Friday.

Peloso, 40, a stay-at-home father of two adopted children, went missing last Sunday in Toronto's west end and was found dead a little while later.

Police do not suspect foul play.

Peloso also went missing in September for 36 hours.
