On Tuesday April 27th, we lost a beautiful young soul to the Heavens. Kostas “Gus” Scountrianos, left this world peacefully at Credit Valley Hospital succumbing to his battle with cancer and then COVID, with his soul soaring into the next world at 47 years of age. We find comfort that Gus is no longer suffering but rather free from the pain of this world. As he watches over his beloved family, he leaves behind his wife Anna Maria, his daughters, Athanasia, Giovanna and Georgina, his parents Athanasia & George Scountrianos, his brother Nick and sister-in-law Nancy Scountrianos, niece Alexandra and nephew George, and his in-laws Bartolo & Giovanna Basile, and brother in-law Francesco & his wife Rosemary Basile and their children Sofia and Ella, only until they meet again. In the true spirit of Gus’s tenacity, he fought and persisted for his family as long as his physical body would allow. As a testament to his kindness and love, Gus also leaves behind many friends and extended family.
Gus was a great husband and partner to Anna Maria. Together they worked as a team to raise their 3 daughters and battle cancer together. As a father to 3 girls, he was no stranger to the ups and downs of raising children. He was a soccer coach, supported the girls through hockey, and was always putting aside time for his family, all the while running a successful business. His voice was often heard in family gatherings, laughing, smiling, and making jokes; debating with the boys about football, soccer and hockey teams.
God did not promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, nor sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. We will all miss you, Gus. We pray for your soul in Heaven and find comfort knowing that you are watching over us in peace and serenity.
