Obituary of George Anagnostopoulos

<h1>George Anagnostopoulos</h1> He lived his life in honour, integrity and love of family. Our father was born in a small mountain village in Messinia, Greece in a stone house built by his father and grandfather. Orphaned at age 3 and then again at 12, he served with bravery and distinction as a foot soldier in the Greek Army on the front lines during the Second World War. In 1950 he married Angeliki Assimakopoulos, the girl next door whom he had asked to wait for him six years before. Together, they would have 8 children, Vickie, Betty, Nick, Stan, Catherine, Aris, Robert and Frank. Together, they made the decision to immigrate to Canada, choosing Kitchener-Waterloo to make their new home. He warmly welcomed Alan Marshall (Vickie), Florence Marino (Robert), Deborah Richmond (Frank), and Mario Paradis (Catherine) into our family. His grandchildren were his greatest joy, Christina, Kathleen, Alexander, George, André, Adam, Nikolas, Kaylee and Antonia. This joy continues for our mother. Visitation will be on Sunday, December 28 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the Erb &amp; Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo where Trisagion Prayers will be held at 7:45 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m on Monday, December 29, 2008 at Saints Peter and Paul Greek Orthodox Church, 527 Bridgeport Rd., Kitchener, with Father Konstantinos Chatzis officiating. Burial will follow at Parkview Cemetery, Waterloo.
