ANASTASIOS (ERNIE) GEORGAKOPOULOS (ERNIE)
Born: Jun 10, 1948
Date of Passing: Aug 09, 2022Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Anastasios Ernie Georgakopoulos on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.
Ernie will be forever remembered by Dianne, his loving wife of 35 plus years; sons, Bill (Brandi), Tony (Marjorie); stepchildren, Dan (Sheila) and Bev (Joe); grandchildren, Victoria (Kevin), Dylan, Alex, Brooklyn, Lauren, Daniel, Kai and Kaylee. Also his brother in Greece, Chris (Aleka) and sisters in Winnipeg, Voula (Nick) and Anna, plus nieces and nephews and many dear friends.
Ernie was born on June 10, 1948 in the little village of Dara in Greece. He was the youngest of seven children. As a young man, he served in the Greek Army and then immigrated to Winnipeg in 1970, where he became a proud Canadian citizen.
After years of working in restaurants, he retired to his dream home in Victoria Beach with Dianne and his faithful and furry friend Buddy.
Ernie was always willing to share his love and knowledge of cooking. For many happy years, he volunteered his cooking skills at the Senior Scene in Victoria Beach and the community always looked forward to his annual "Greek Dinner and Dance" event. Throughout the years, many lasting friendships were made.
Ernie was an avid gardener and proud of his Greek Korner. Often people would walk up the driveway just to take a look at his garden and enjoy a glass of his homemade wine or beer, Opa!
Cremation has taken place and according to his wishes, a private family interment will be held at a later date.
If friends so wish, a donation may be made in Ernie's honor to CancerCare Manitoba, Senior Scene in Victoria Beach, MB, or a charity of your choice.
Friends and family are invited to visit Ernie's memorial page @interlakecremation.ca, where memories and condolences may be shared.
