Adoring Dedo of Jessica, Joseph and Matthew Milosevski and Jorge and Raquelle Ortiz. Brother of the late Dimitri (Chrisanthi) Pialis and Stefanos (the late Litsa) Pialis. Treasured uncle of many nieces and nephews. Peter was always full of energy, with a smile on his face he made friends everywhere he went.
He immigrated to Canada at age 23 and built a successful business through his fearlessness and tenacity. Peter is known for his determination, strong work ethic, happy disposition and his love and commitment to his family. He was devoted to his wife, Litsa, and together they built a beautiful life. Peter always inspired and supported his girls who loved him dearly and was incredibly proud of all of his grandchildren who brought him so much joy. He was a playful and fun grandfather who loved sharing his stories, making his grandchildren laugh and spoiling them as much as he could.
Peter’s strong faith was very important to him and dictated how he lived his life. He was generous to those in need, created opportunities for anyone he could, forgave easily and smiled often. Peter will be greatly missed by family, friends and all those who experienced his generosity and joyful spirit.
