It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our dear Father, Papou and Great-Grandfather Costas on May 6th in his 95th year of life. He is our rock, our inspiration, our mentor. He is now with his beloved wife, Martha of 74 years, his sons Sam & Andy, together again watching over us all. Dad touched many lives and will be truly missed by all who knew him.Dad served as a proud member of the British Army in the Second World War. He traveled to Canada from his beloved country of Cyprus in 1965 to make a better life for his family, and what life we had. He worked hard to instill his family values in all of us. Raising 8 children, 15 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren. Our Patriarch, our story teller, our joker, and our very own home priest. He was our Google! He loved his family. He was grateful for the smallest of things. Forever in hearts, our memories will always be cherished.
We love you dad, travel in peace, give a big kiss and hug to Mom, Sam & Andy.
