Obituary

Georgopoulos, Dimitrios:

Passed away peacefully in his sleep at St Mary’s General Hospital on Saturday October 17, 2020 in Kitchener, ON at the age of 90.

Dimitrios will be forever missed by his beloved wife of 54 years, Efrosyni (nee Samaras). He leaves behind his loving children, Paul (Ange), Pashalina (Michael) and Kyriacos (Sarah). Dimitrios was a proud grandfather and adored by his 8 grandchildren, Anastasia, John Michael, Dimitris, Gabby, Sophia, Teddy and twins Jimmy & John. He is also survived by his brother in law Giorgos and sister in law Anastasia in Greece. “Theo Taki” will forever be remembered by his many nephews, nieces, friends, colleagues in Canada, US and Greece.
Predeceased by his parents Pavlos & Pashalina, Siblings Pantelis (Artemis), Andromahe (Michael), Soula (Chris) and George (Irene)

Dimitrios was born in a small town, Amyntaio, Florina, Greece in 1930. He was the 2nd youngest sibling of a hard-working family. Unfortunately, his parents passed away when he was very young and he and his siblings learned to survive and progress together. Dimitrios spent many years serving in the Greek Military upon his discharge he worked with his brothers painting churches and buildings and travelled throughout Greece as a truck driver delivering produce. He decided to experience Canada upon the guidance of his siblings. He arrived in Canada in the early 60’s via Halifax and always spoke about his first job working at the grandiose Walper Hotel. After several years in Canada, he returned to Greece and married Efrosyni. They returned to Canada and commenced their journey sowing new roots in Kitchener. After many years in construction at Steed & Evans, he then retired at Kraus Carpet Mills. In his retirement he continued his passion as an avid gardener cultivating the hottest peppers anyone has ever tasted. His carpentry skills were second to none and he kept busy with multiple renovation projects which kept building inspectors in awe of his skill. Dimitrios had a fiery passion for everything in life, family, work and morality. In his retirement “Pappou” loved and adored his 8 grandchildren as they were the light of his life. Dimitrios will always be remembered as a hard working, dedicated husband, father, grandfather and devout Orthodox Christian committed to his church as a long serving parish council member and lifelong member at Saints Peter & Paul Greek Orthodox Church.

“May his memory be eternal”

Efrosyni was a courageous and loyal wife caring for him during his challenging period with Dementia. Many thanks go to Pasha and her family for taking on the challenge of nursing him during the Pandemic. The family would also like to thank the many PSW’s that assisted, Dr. Thomas Irvine and the marvelous work of the 5th floor nurses at St. Mary’s Hospital

I have fond memories of Jim (Dimitris Georgopoulos), although we parted
roads more than twenty years ago, as I came back to Greece. Jim for was a
nice, polite warm friend and a good fellow - Greek and Orthodox - a person to remember and talk about as long as you live. To all of you in his family, my
deepest condolences and my strongest personal and friendly advise: Keep
talking to him and draw lessons from the gift of his life; he has not left
us. He is waiting for us! Daniel Sahas.
