George Petropoulos, beloved husband to Frances of over 60 years, precious father to Demetra, Jimmy, and Konstantina, and adored beyond measure Pappou to Susie (Al), Frances, Alexander, James, Francesca, Lauren, Rachel and Georgaki and great-grandfather and the other Pappou to Kai, Olivia and Aria. Amazing father in law to Kiriakos, Claudette and Salvatore. Dearest son predeceased by his parents Dimitrios and Andriana and dear brother to Tom and brother in law to Nikki and Maria. Predeceased by his older siblings, Theoni, Panagiota, Kaliroi, Akrivi, and Sam. George had many nieces and nephews, god-children, family, friends including all the original Harry’s gang and especially his hunting buddies who have always been a big part of his life and meant a lot to him.
George was born in Greece in 1937, immigrated to Canada in 1957 and married the love of his life Frances in 1960. He suffered with COPD and fought valiantly but lost his battle on Sunday, May 10th. George has now gained his angel wings and will be watching over us all from heaven as he did while here on earth. He was loved so much by so many and will be greatly missed. His big and generous heart, fiery and larger than life spirit will never be forgotten.
A celebration of life will be forthcoming when restrictions have been lifted and details will be shared then.
