Petros Vasilos Death, Obituary – We must inform you, dear friends and family, of the demise of Mr. Petros Vasilos with deepest condolences. On Wednesday, December 7th, 2022, at the age of 92, he died away in a calm and serene manner while surrounded by his family. His six children Christina (Peter), Kalliopi (Niko), Dimitri (Roula), Eleni (George), and Thomas, and Stavroula are the only ones to survive him (Kosta).
He was showered with the love of his 14 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren, all of whom were a blessing.
On March 22nd, 1930, Petros was born in the village of Oxia Karditsa, which is located in Greece. Out of a total of 5 siblings, he was the second youngest. Due to the fact that they were orphaned at a young age, they raised themselves together to be self-reliant and independent from an early age. In spite of the numerous challenges he had to overcome throughout his life, he placed a high priority on the upbringing of his own children according to the principles of family, respect, religion, and love. In search of a better life, he moved to Canada in 1984 and settled there.
He was a man of strong independence who enjoyed every moment of his life to the utmost. He took pleasure in the more refined aspects of life, but above all else, he loved and treasured spending quality time with his family, especially on holidays and special occasions. He took great pleasure in roasting lamb on the spit for Easter each and every year, and he made certain to teach his grandchildren the value of maintaining family traditions. He reigned supreme when it came to dancing to his preferred Greek Dimotika songs, including Karagouna and Itia.
On each and every dancefloor, he left his imprint. Petros was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather to his family. He also cherished his great-grandchildren. He had a smile that could brighten any room he entered. His contagious spirit and infectious laughter will be a memory that will endure for all of time. He will be sorely missed, but we will never, ever forget him.
