We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Spiros Balageorge on April 20, 2023, at the age of 94.
Born on October 11, 1928, in Karaiskakis, Greece, Spiros is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Lemonia, who has been his devoted partner throughout their long marriage, and his son Dimitrios (Eleni), and grandchildren, Christina (Nicholas) and Spiro. He will also be deeply missed by his siblings, Socrates (Chrissoula), Bobby, and Aliki.
Spiros completed his education and training as an electrician and mechanic after finishing high school. He also served in the Greek Military before immigrating to Canada in 1954, where he would eventually meet and marry his wife Lemonia. Spiros was proud of his Greek heritage and was an active member of his community. He served as a Board member and President of the St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church and was also heavily involved in the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA). He held the position of President of the local chapter of AHEPA in Winnipeg and the local District Regional President of AHEPA. Spiros worked for many years at Standard Aero until his retirement.
A funeral service will be held on Monday, April 24, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 2255 Grant Avenue, followed by interment at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Avenue. Coffee will be served in the church basement.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Janet and I worked at Standard Aero in Accessories Department with Spiros for many years. Always a gentleman and great person on the team. His attention to detail and quality of work was exemplary. He was an influence that helped get Janet and I to move beyond just dating each other. My relationship with the Belageorge family expanded when I choose his son Dimitrios as my surgeon for hip replacement. Our sincere condolences to the family on the passing of Spiros. - Posted by: Richard and Janet McIntyre (Friend / Co-worker) on: Apr 26, 2023

Spiros and my father were very good friends. Often Spiros would spend time with my dad at the Red Boot Drive Inn. Memory Eternal! - Posted by: Nick Karvelas (Family friend) on: Apr 24, 2023
