Dimitrios “Jim” Papulkas
May 10, 1935 – March 12, 2023
In loving memory of Dimitrios “Jim” Papulkas who passed away peacefully at the age of 87 on March 12, 2023, with his family by his side.
He and his beloved late wife Dafni will be reunited once again after 67 wonderful years of marriage. Loving father of Tom (Megan), Nick, and Dan (Linda). Adored by his grandchildren Marin, Abby and Ava, who were his pride and joy. He was the youngest of five siblings, the late Alex, Antigoni, Ifegenia and Fotini.
Jim came to Canada from Ethnikon, Greece at the age of 17, full of hope for a new life. As he became accustomed to his new country, he quickly became a huge fan of hockey and the Maple Leafs and later the Argos and the Blue Jays. He worked hard to support his family, spending almost 40 years working at Telfer Packaging. He took great pride in his home and his garden. He and Nick could always be found working on projects in and around the house.
Jim will be greatly missed by family and friends; he will forever be in our hearts.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
