IKONOMIDIS, Michael Sotirios Ikonomidis   -  (1933 - 2022)  Michael Ikonomidis died peacefully from COVID at the Village of Taunton Mills, Whitby, on Saturday, June 18, 2022 in his 89th year. 

Mike was born in Kalamata, Greece.

After graduating as an electrical engineer from the university of Athens and serving his compulsory military duty (NATO Forces), he immigrated to Canada in 1960.

n Toronto, Mike designed and sold components for international electrical supply companies.

He was a Past Patron of Ontario Chapter #227 (Ajax), and a Grand Officer (2008), Order of the Eastern Star. 

In 1999 Mike met Gay (nee Bonisteel) Adair at a Masonic luncheon. They married in 2001, enjoyed dancing, travelling and Mike’s cooking.

Two years ago, they made “the right move at the right time” to Taunton Mills. Last year, with advancing Alzheimer’s, Mike moved to the memory care floor.

The Taunton Mills team members have been so very compassionate, kind, and helpful to Mike, as well as Gay.

The family is sincerely grateful. Michael will be remembered by his son, (Dr.) John (Krystal) Ikonomidis, and forever in the hearts of Gay and her family: Paul, Susan, Anne, Louise, Amy, Carter and Carol; other relatives, friends and neighbours.

At a later date there will be a celebration of Life, but in the interim please toast Michael with a glass (or two) of red wine or Grand Marnier.

If desired, please consider a donation in Mike’s memory to a  CHARITY of your choice.
