Dimitrios James Tsonos

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James (Jim) Tsonos on January 31st, 2020 at the age of 88. Predeceased by his parents Stephen and Aphrodite, his sister Rita and brothers Chris, Mike and George.

He is survived by his loving wife Nellie, his four children Melanie (Gil), Karen (Brent), Jim Jr. (Cindy) and Jonathan, his grandchildren Jordan, Jarod and Keri (Jason), his brother Gus (Pam), sister-in-laws Ruth, Liz, Mary and Annie and his many nieces and nephews.

Jim’s love for life, sense of humour and kindness brightened up any room he entered. He loved curling and golf because it was something he could do with family and friends, which was the most important part of his life. He always made people laugh and was proud to tell anyone he met that he was the coach of the 1961 Dominion Champion Verdun Shamcats.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

The family will receive relatives and friends at :

1275 Dollard, Lasalle

Dear Jonathan, Gerry and I were so sorry to read of your father’s passing. It was easy to see how close you were to your Dad when you would come to work and tell us such heart-warming stories about him. May he now rest in peace and may you and your family find strength during this very difficult time. Best regards, Lynn

How so very lucky am I to have Jim Tsonos as my Father. You are a class act Dad. You never ever once let me down. Actually, when I was in your presence you only brought the sunshine. You are hilarious and somehow turned a sad or bad situation upside down. So grateful and proud to be your daughter. You will forever be with me. I love you Dad. Melanie

What a great friend he was at the curling club. I will always remember our skits that we did together during the curling club early years when special events were performed after curling. He made me and everyone laugh and cheer just for fun. Rest in peace Jim.

It was always privilege to be a friend of Jimmy's... We have so many memories to look back on... His sense of humour is renowned but his decency, honesty and especially the love of his family were the cornerstones of his life... He will definitely never be forgotten.
