Elias The Spartan Theodorou answered his final bell yesterday, September 11th, 2022, browse the statement.
He passed peacefully aware of his family and family members in his corner following a hard-fought fight with cancer of the colon that metastasized. He faced his end as he lived his life eternally, irrationally, and infectiously optimistic.
Its impossible to fully capture every facet or most of his accomplishments in a straightforward post so to create it an extended story short. You will have a public viewing from 5-9pm Wednesday, September 14th at Vescios Funeral Home, 8101 Weston Road in Woodbridge, Ontario.
Instead of flowers please contribute to Elias two foundations, Theodorou Foundation & Higher Access. Both these were founded to greatly help others facing barriers accessing hospital support and medical cannabis, minus the resources that Elias was blessed with.
