It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of my father Theodore Delaportas on May 9th 2019, at the age of 91.
Ted was born on May the 1st, 1928 in Lixouri, Kefalonia, Greece. At age 21 he met the love of his life, Sotiria Kotsis from Laka Souliou, Akladea, Greece while serving in the Greek army.
Immigrating to Canada they were wed the 26th of February 1955 in Montreal.
Family was always top priority for Ted and his life was comprised of operating their family restaurant businesses. This was always with great success and Ted was respected by all. The greatest moments treasured that he spent was with his children, grand-children and great grand-children.
Ted loved to play chess and was a masterful player who loved to challenge and be challenged. His greatest attributes were his charm and his wit, a true gentleman who showed only love and kindness to all.
Beloved husband of Sotiria Delaportas, cherished father of George, Peter and Anna, devoted grandfather of Tiria, Melanie, Theodore, Christina, Sarah, Tyler, Brandon, Bridget, Terry and Stephanie.
He will also be deeply missed by his great- grandchildren Max, Jordan, Noah-Theodore, Abigail, Kennedy, and Holden -Theodore and all relatives and friends.

I had the pleasure of knowing Ted for around 11 years, it is truly rare to find true gentlemen in today's world and Ted was the consummate Gentleman in every sense; chivalrous, polite, considerate, kind and selfless. He was also an astute businessman that put his family first and ensured they enjoyed a great start in life, we shared many discussions on business ideas and strategies over a glass of wine or in Ted's case Tsipouro disguised as water!!
Ted also had a dry sense of humour and wit when least expected. This photo is very apt.

Wonderful Papou. You made my life! I am smiling just thinking about you! You showed me an example of what a true gentleman is. You played with me all around the house and made adventures out of old shopping bags and scarves. You nurtured me with tender love and care with fresh fruit bowls, drawings, pina coladas and home made pizza!!! I know that my life brought you great joy and that makes me feel really really good. My kiddos will know you through stories that I will share in great detail and I will slap their little faces and say minous, minous, minous, pla, pla, pla, pla!
I will always cherish all of our memories and I vow to teach Max & Jojo all of the valuable characteristics that you represented in your lifetime. Until we meet again, Yasou.
