Elias “The Spartan” Theodorou answered his final bell yesterday, September 11th, 2022.
He passed peacefully at home with his family and loved ones in his corner after a hard-fought fight with colon cancer that metastasized.
He faced his end as he lived his life eternally, irrationally, and infectiously optimistic.
It’s impossible to capture every facet or all of his accomplishments in a simple post so to “make it a long story short”
There will be a public viewing from 5-9pm Wednesday, September 14th at Vescios Funeral Home, 8101 Weston Road in Woodbridge, Ontario.
In lieu of flowers please donate to Elias’ two foundations, Theodorou Foundation & Higher Access. Both of these were founded to help others facing barriers accessing hospital support and medical cannabis, without the resources that Elias was blessed with.
