Loving father of Sophie (Edward) and Tony (Gina). Cherished grandfather of Natalie, Nicole and Alexa. Beloved brother of Alexandra, Helen and Xanthi (predeceased).
Born in Halara, Greece on August 23, 1931, the son of Antonis and Sofia Kiru. He married his wife Fana Karatimus in Poland in 1959. They arrived in Canada in 1964 and made their home in Toronto.
Vasilis was a very hard working individual and a true family man. He loved his family dearly. It was his family that gave him meaning in his life. He was the ideal father and grandfather. Spending time with his family and watching his children and grandchildren grow up was his greatest joy in life, and he cherished every moment. He was tremendously loved by his family. He will always remain very deeply in our minds and in our hearts, as will the many cherished memories that we shared with him.
