It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of George Zelis, our beloved father and grandfather. Predeceased by his daughter, Irene, and his wife Sia, he will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his son Pete, daughter-in-law Fani, son-in law Nick and his four grandchildren, Jonathan, George, Alyssia and Stephen. He is also missed and remembered by his extended family and many close friends both here in Vancouver and in Greece. George was born in Kyparissi, Laconia, Greece. He left home at the age of 21, first moving to Germany and eventually settling in Vancouver, where he met and married Sia, enjoying 51 beautiful years together. George will be remembered for his kindness, his warm personality and his amazing ability to fill a room with smiles and laughter. Due to the current restrictions, the funeral service will be limited to immediate family. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Cancer Foundation.

Pete, Fani, Nick and families:

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved father and grandfather. He was one of a kind; always smiling and deeply caring. A thoughtful and passionate man about many things, but nothing more so than his family.

I will never forget the many wonderful memories in your home where your parents treated me like a son. It was one of the great privileges of my life.

May God rest his soul and comfort you in your time of grief. My parents George and Effie join me and my family in extending our condolences.

With love and respect,
Alex, Maryanna, George and Effie Tsakumis and families.

With great sadness I heard of the passing of our good friend George. He was caring, humorous, positive, always with a bright smile, a good family man and a good friend. Together with my late Apostolo and Sia, whom I miss terribly, and the rest of our friends we had many memorable evenings together. My deepest condolences to the whole family and friends. He will be missed and remembered with love and affection. May he rest in peace!🙏

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of our brother in law and uncle, George. George (Theio Giorgo), was one of the pillars of our family over the years. His prominent smile and humour has been a bright light in each of our lives. His kindness and warmth was universal for everyone he met, but his dedication to the family was an example we all strive to achieve. He taught us hard work is rewarded with having fun adventures while at leisure. We have so many cherished memories of family gatherings and while traveling the world together. His legacy will live on in our hearts forever.
We will look to the stars each night and remember him and the fascinating astronomy facts he always shared with us. We find comfort knowing that our dear George is now with our beloved sister/aunt Sia and niece/cousin Irene. We are certain that they are dancing, laughing and doing magic tricks together, at peace.
Kalo Paradiso Giorgo!
With loving thoughts, your memory will be eternal.
