Robert (Bob Triant) Triantafyllou
Unable are the loved to die, for love is immortality…Emily Dickinson
“Truly I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise” Luke 23:43
On November 4, 2021, at the age of 91 surrounded by his beloved family, cherished daughters Maria, Margaret, and devoted grandson Charlie, loving companion Hana, Shari and Jonathan…Robert shuffled off this mortal coil to the heavenly sound of composer Richard Strauss’s epic musical masterpiece Four Last Songs featuring the incomparable voice of Gundula Janowitz. With tearful eyes we watched you suffer and saw you fade away. Although we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove, He only takes the best. “He will wipe away tears from their eyes and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away”
Robert was born on July 19, 1930 in Athens, Greece to cherished parents Maria and Charles. Robert was the youngest sibling among his sisters Eva(David) and Biby(Basil), he now joins them in divine residence, alongside his cherished, beloved wife Kay who passed away and left us far too soon before him.
Bob graduated from Manchester University, England earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Upon his arrival in Canada, he enjoyed a vibrant and dynamic career as an Industrial Marketing Management Specialist, that spanned decades across the globe. He was an eternal, die-hard Olympiacos and Manchester United Football FAN(!)and that ladies and gents, is the understatement of the century…Robert cultivated a life long passion for the fine arts. He was a bona fide connaisseur of encyclopedic proportions on the comprehensive history of classical music, ballet and opera. He enjoyed travelling the world to attend the live performances of numerous musical icons in the worlds grandest music and performance concert halls.
He was a voracious reader of far too numerous subjects to mention, including world history, politics and MUSIC! He walked bravely through the maze of life, guided by the light of wisdom, driven by passion and blessed by love and virtue. A beloved, kind, generous soul whose bright warm light will never fade.
Until we meet again under generous skies of blue…our sweet precious darling; loyal and devoted husband, father, brother, uncle grandfather, companion, friend and gentleman. We love and adore you. Beauty is as beauty does -Geoffrey Chaucer
