Predeceased by his cherished granddaughter Alexa Deslauriers, his parents Theodore and Demetra Christeas, sister Vaso Aggelopoulos, brother in laws Michael Katsiroumpas, Lefteris Euthumiou, and sister in law Sophia Christodoulou.
Beloved husband of Alexandra Christeas, just 3 months shy of their 60th wedding anniversary. Loving father to Toula (Guy) Deslauriers and Theodore Christeas. Cherished grandfather of Marc, Christophe, and Nicole, who always loved his stories, jokes, and advice. He is survived by his siblings, George (Fotini) Christeas, Dina (John) Metsopoulos,
and Irene Tsiabouris. His brother in law John (Penny) Katsiroumpas, sister in laws, Athanasia Euthumiou, and Emily Katsiroumpas. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Nick was an amazing husband and father. He loved his family, his friends, and his work as a chef. He always celebrated everything in life. He brightened any room he entered and his joie de vivre was electric. If you ever had a chance to have a conversation with him and get advice from him you walked away invigorated. His strength and presence was undeniable. His laughter and love will be unforgettable and missed. He was the very best of everything. He came to Canada in 1963 from Greece with big dreams. He worked hard and achieved his dreams and along the way formed many wonderful friendships.
The family would like to thank Father Alex Michalopoulos for his prayers and support.
