Steve was born March 14th, 1943 in Lithovounia, Arcadia Greece. He came to Canada in 1962 with his sister Voula. His father and sister’s Lela and Georgina were already her. His mother followed shortly thereafter. He married his beloved wife Koula in 1967. They had 2 children, Jane and Bill while living in Toronto, before moving to Stouffville. As a retired Canada Post driver, Steve had worked in construction and as a mechanic for some years but most of his working life was with Canada Post.
Steve or “Big Stevie”, as he was sometimes called, had a lot of hobbies and interests. He was always happy and loved his jokes. He had a great interest in cars and racing, like drag racing at Cayuga, and motorcycles, often joking about getting a big Harley Davidson. He travelled a lot, mostly to Greece and Florida. An advent gardener he loved the country life, hunting, and lately riding his “Kubota” tractor to cut grass and till his huge garden. His granddaughter says “papouli” was also a really good artist, especially good at drawing fish and animals. After the passing of his beloved wife Koula, in a car accident in 2009, Steve spent most of his time in his garden, tinkering in the shed, looking after his chickens, goats, and barn cats. He also worked on various word search puzzles, reading and on the phone every morning and evening with his sister Lela. He will be sadly missed.
We pray Steve and Koula, now reunited; enjoy their heavenly garden.
