Elias Drakos Obituary, Death Cause – On May 24, Elias (Louie) Drakos, a loving family man who was committed as a husband, father, and grandfather, passed away quietly. At the time of his passing, he was bathed in the love of his family members who surrounded him. His devoted and loving wife of 58 years, Dimitra Drakos, his three children Jim (who is married to Susan), Olga (who is married to Randy), and Angelo (who is married to Alexandra), and five grandchildren, Angeline, Michael, Elias, Dimitri, and Georgina, survive him. Jim and Susan Drakos are the Drakos children’s parents. Their children are named Jim and Olga. Angelo Drakos is married to Alexandra Drakos.
On December 19th, 1938, he was born in the town of Dorio, which is found in the Greek region of Messinia. His younger siblings George, Theodora, Georgia, and Alexandra are all still alive and will continue on his legacy after he passes away. In the years leading up to his emigration to Canada in 1964, he held the position of police officer in his native Greece. While he was residing in Canada, he tied the knot with Dimitra and started working as a waiter for VIA rail. Both of these events took place while he was in Canada.
After that, he went on to work in restaurants until he and his wife opened O’Connor Fish and Chips, where they have been employed for more than three decades with their children and grandchildren. Because of all the labor that he put in throughout the course of his life, Elias was able to live a prosperous existence. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, as well as going on adventures and hunting. Instead of sending flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Red Cross in memory of their loved one. Not only did Elias receive life-saving transfusions in his later years, which were immensely advantageous to him, but the Red Cross also rescued him when he was a toddler during World War II, when he was in danger. This was a significant accomplishment for Elias on multiple fronts.
