It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John Kardassilaris, who left us peacefully at home, on April 8, 2024, at the age of 90 after he suffered from cancer. John often said, “I have lived a good life”.

John was a lifelong resident of Montreal. Cherished by many for his sharp sense of humour, his love of hunting, fishing, the Montreal Canadiens and Alouettes and his woodworking, making his own tools and something for anybody that they wanted or needed.

He leaves behind his beloved wife, Christine, with whom he shared 45 years filled with love, laughter and mutual respect. His legacy continues through his sister Anne (Bonita), his beloved children, Karen (André), Debbie (Dave), Anthony (Nicole) and Brennan (Karen) and his adored grandchildren, Justin (Tina), Amber (Tino), Jordan, Jason, Kimberly (Jean Sebastien), Jamie (Darling), Peyton, Quinn and Miles and his great – grandchildren Nathan and Jayden who brought immense joyful pride to his life and loved a good laugh with each one.

We would like to remember all who have passed before, Billy, Gerry, Irene and Paul, Georgette and Steve, Sandra and Johnny, Cathy (Eddy) and Sonny (Irene).

John will be missed by many nieces and nephews who were an important part of his life. Also, the friends and neighbours who have crossed our paths. We want to give thanks to Nova and CLSC for the kind way they dealt with John.

We want to give Bill (Donna) a big thank you because he was John’s true friend till the end.

A private memorial service will be held to celebrate John’s life. John’s memory will be cherished and kept alive by all who knew him.

In lieu of flowers please donate to Nova – West Island

Rest in peace John/Dad/Poppa.

    Our deepest condolences on the passing of this wonderful husband, father, grandfather/great-grandfather and dearest friend. He will be sorely missed by many. Missing our daily coffee get-togethers, chatting about Les Canadiens and Alouettes, your vast experience and input to just about anything and everything. I cherish our life-long friendship. You are missed so much, my friend, and never to be forgotten. Rest In Peace, John.
