With grace, dignity and strength, Christopher B. Miovski made his peaceful transition the afternoon of October 2, 2019 surrounded by his family.

Chris is the beloved husband of Violette Temcheff Gumuchoglu Miovski for fifty years and outstanding father and father-in law to Gerry Miovski (Bonnie Miovski) and Natalie Miovski Hagerty (Sean Hagerty). Christopher was a doting grandfather to Morgan and Emma Miovski, loving brother and brother-in-law to Dmitri Miovski (Margaritka Miovski) and Constantin Temcheff (Maureen Conway Temcheff). Chris will be sadly missed by his nieces Katrin Miovski Leonard (Joseph Leonard), Caroline Temcheff and Lily Angelov (Frank Tropper) along with his nephews Vasko Miovski (Carolin Miovski), Hristo Angelov, and Boris Angelov (Kerem Bortecen).

Chris graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Istanbul Technical University and followed the love of his life, Violette to Montreal where he received his Master’s Degree in Architecture at McGill University. He specialized in Healthcare Architecture where he shared his exceptional talent with his colleagues and clients around the world. Christopher spent over 40 years working at Cannon Design retiring as a Senior Principal. He enjoyed traveling internationally with his wife, was an active member of the Florida Turkish House in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, enjoyed watching FIFA soccer and spending time with his friends and family.

Sincere thank you to the loving staff at Jewish General Hospital of Montreal for the exceptional care at the end of his life.

Dear Friend Chris
You left us too soon as if you knew it at your Fiftieth. We were so happy for you to visit Constantinople which you cherished so much. I cannot claim to be a long time friend but even the almost 20 years that i came to know you will leave an indelible mark in our Hearts. Both my kids, which you came to know you, and myself will deeply miss you.
Rest in Peace

How sad! Chris was one of those one-of-a-kind individuals that I consider myself very lucky to have known and worked with. Just observing him at work and at home taught me so much. He was not only so competent in what he did, he was so passionate about it. He simply couldn't give enough of himself......always put 110% into his efforts, whether at work or at home. He was liked and respected by everybody who had the good fortune to work with him. And, on top of that, was very entertaining. He was a joy to work with. He had it all! My heart goes out to Violette, Natalie and Jerry. You are going to miss him terribly.

Amongst so many other things Chris was an active member of the Playa Del Sol Building and Grounds Committee. He was a true professional that used his architectural skills to improve our condominium for his family, friends and neighbors. He gave his time selflessly and he will be sorely missed by all. A good man has moved on. God Bless you Chris.
