August 17, 1924 – August 20, 2020


It is with deep sadness that the family of Chris Andros announce the passing of this wonderful man, on August 20th, 2020 at the age of 96. Beloved husband of the late Edith Andros.

A Dad, a Grandpa and a Great-Grandpa to the very end, he lived a good life full of love and joy. We will always remember his love of tinkering in his workshop, spending time in the garden, summer days fishing and boating on Georgian Bay, and many meals with his family followed by a generous shot of Metaxa while his grandchildren tirelessly tried to beat Grandpa at Gin Rummy!

He leaves behind his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as many family and friends. He will be greatly missed.

Many thanks to the PSW’s and Nurses at Close the Gap and St. Elizabeth Health, Dr. Nishikawa, and special thanks to his caregivers Deborah and Devi who took excellent care of him.

He has been laid to rest at Park Lawn Cemetery, Etobicoke.  Arrangements by Egan Funeral Home, Bolton (905-857-2213).

In Chris’s memory, donations can be made to Etobicoke General Hospital or the PSP Society of Canada.

Sadly, I have just learned of the passing of Uncle Chris. Here are just a few of my special memories of him;

Christmas, when I was age 4, I received a present from Uncle Chris and Aunt Edith, a train set with engine, tracks, cars and a control transformer. It was the best present ever!!

I remember many fishing trips from his cottage near Penetang. Out in the Bay he would triangulate using trees on shore and could locate the special fishing spot every time (no GPS in those days!).

When I was 14 we visited Uncle Chris’s Machine shop. I asked him if he had a few small washers that I needed for a project. He took a paper bag and proceeded to place a handful of washers from each of a dozen bins in the bag. I left with a bag with 5 pounds of washers. I used some for that project and many more projects through the years. I still have a few left in a bin downstairs.

I remember many hunting trips in Tecumseth township. Uncle Chris would arrange to obtain licenses for us every year. We would usually rabbit hunt from about 11:AM to 4:PM then have a late lunch before returning home. One Saturday we received word to not bring a lunch. After the hunt, Uncle Chris removed a Coleman Stove from his trunk, set it up and placed a huge frying pan on it. He dropped in a half pound of butter, filled it with onions, and later added more ingredients including steak and kidney pieces. It was a crisp and clear -20 degrees out that day, and the incredible aroma of that meal cooking was something I will never forget.

The brothers (Chris, Gus, Michael and Tom) would occasionally gather in Uncle Chris’s basement and play Greek Music. Uncle Chris played the clarinet. When in high school I chose the clarinet because of those sessions. I still remember two of the songs and can still play them.

I have never had Metaxa. I will try some in memory of Uncle Chris.

Alex Andros and Family.
