1927 - 2020
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved father and cherished grandfather, George Giannias. He passed away peacefully at the age of 92 at the Montreal General Hospital under the excellent and compassionate care of Drs. Ferri, Cools and Spicer and their supportive team at MGH 11 East.
Predeceased by his loving wife Katina, he leaves behind his children Betty and Nick (Laura), his grandchildren Kathryn and Michael, his siblings Theodore (Fotini), Kosta (Matoula), Peter (Katina), Louis (Zoe), Voula (Aleko, deceased), Dina (George), Soula (Steve, deceased), Anthi (Theodore), brother-in-law Panagiotis, and sisters-in-law Sofia and Marika and many nieces and nephews in Canada and Greece.
George was and will always remain an inspiration to his family and those he left behind. He was the epitome of a good man; always selflessly providing for those around him. George was extremely hardworking, generous, intelligent and kind. He loved his family more than anything in the world, and always spoke so fondly of his late wife who he is rejoicing to be with again. He will always be remembered for his kind words and lovely smile that spread across his face even in his last moment. He will be missed beyond measure and thought of often, lovingly and gratefully for all he has done.
A private funeral will be held on Thursday March 26, 2020 (due to government restrictions) at Koimisis tis Theotokou Church and at a later date the family will invite family and friends in celebrating George’s life as these were his wishes.
