Obituary for Vasilios Basile Bill Theodorakopoulos

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear and loving father/grandfather Vasilios Theodorakopoulos. He passed away peacefully on the evening of November 7th, 2018 at Markham Stouffvile Hospital at the age of 89. He was the cornerstone of our family, devoted father and doting grandfather. His family was everything to him and he always showed his love by his acts of selflessness and sacrifices. He was born on March 15th, 1929 in Doumena, Greece to Archontoula and Demetri Theodorakopoulos, third son of seven children. He was a strong man who survived many hardships such as, the Second World War and the depression. He later met and married the love of his life, our mother, Maria (deceased). In 1967, they moved their two daughters and themselves to Canada, with the clothes on their backs, where they continued to work hard to provide for their family. His love and devotion to his family continued until his last breath. He will be greatly missed by his daughters Tula Giurukis(Niko) and Sophie Granofsky. Loving grandchildren, Tommy Giurukis(Tara), Billy Granofsky, Kathy Sousa(Justin), Billy Giurukis, Lucas Granofsky, Jimmy Granofsky, Chris Granofsky, Angelo Granofsky, George Kapetan-Georgiu and precious great-grandchildren, Annabelle Giurukis and Andreas Sousa. The viewing will be held on Sunday November 11th, 2018 at Chapel Ridge Funeral Home in Markham from 5pm to 9pm. The funeral will be held on Monday November 12th, 2018 at St. Panteleimon Greek Orthodox Church in Markham at 11am.
