In memory of

Zisis "Joe" Nistas

March 18, 1969 -  December 12, 2021

Passed away suddenly on Sunday, December 12, 2021 at the age of 52. Beloved husband, devoted father and compassionate son. He is survived by his wife, Kanella; his children, George and Angela (Kiki); and his father, Triantafillos. Preceding him in death was his brother, George and his mother, Angela.

Joe loved his family unconditionally and did anything and everything for them. He enjoyed his times with George learning about trains and loved watching him play hockey. He loved watching Kiki take the stage at dance competitions. He was so proud of both of them. Taking them on ski trips, biking in the neighbourhood, swimming in the backyard and family vacations were some of his most cherished times with them.
A gifted listener who was readily available when people needed to talk. No judgment, no criticism.
