MARKOULIS, Stavros
By Jerry AMERNIC, Page A22
Father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great grandfather. Born September 4, 1912, in Armensko, (now) Greece. Died September 26, 2005 in Toronto, aged 93.
At dinner recently my wife told some Friends about her grandfather passing away. "He just got tired of life," she said.
Stavros MARKOULIS was the patriarch of the family, but the word seems too weighty for this soft-spoken, unassuming man whom almost everyone called "Dedo" (grandfather in Macedonian). He was not a decision-maker or settler of disputes, preferring to leave such things to others. Making waves was not his style.
He was the first of his family to leave the little Macedonian village of Armensko and come to Canada, arriving in 1951 with his two sons.
He soon sent for his wife Magda and their daughters. Along with younger son Lazo and son-in-law Lazaros, he ran a diner in Toronto, at the corner of Queen Street and Broadview Avenue. It was called United Lunch and was a popular mainstay in the neighbourhood for more than 25 years. Stavros, called Chris by his Friends and Dedo by everyone else, was the chef.
He liked good food, ribald jokes and a long solitary drag on his cigarette. A simple man who never lost sight of where he came from, he always wore his Macedonian imprint with pride. The only thing more important was his family.
He married his sweetheart Magda when he was 19 and she was 16. Their children came at regular intervals: daughter Evangeline, followed by sons Ilo and Lazo, then three more daughters, Fania, Mara and Tula. The flock this group produced would make Dedo a very proud Dedo indeed -- the family picnic held at the end of every summer to mark his birthday was often greeted with a new arrival.
When the bountiful lunch was over, the grandchildren and great-grandchildren would gather for a photograph with the man of the hour. It was always his proudest moment.
In 1976, when his beloved Magda was suddenly taken from him, he embarked on the final third of his life, cared for by Evangeline and forming wonderful Friendships with his many grandchildren.
He was a true raconteur who liked relating tales of the old country, like the time when he was a young boy and French soldiers offered him "bonbons" after they ventured into the village during the First World War.
When he told this story, and he told it a thousand times, he would add a little song that he had learned from those soldiers. He'd sing it with joy and a smile and when it was over he'd exclaim "French!" as though he had just made a major discovery. Word has it that he sang it a mere week before he died.
A few years ago he was videotaped singing the song, but with an added feature - he had a patch over one eye and finished with his own special version of "Hasta la vista, baby." Everyone in the family wanted a copy of the tape.
Dedo was a thoughtful, easygoing man with never a cross word for anyone. He walked with a smooth gait that was unique to him - -- hands crossed behind his back, a slight stoop to his back, the signature cap on his head.
He was blessed with good health almost to the end; he was around so long it seems strange with him not here.
He was much loved by his six children (one of whom, son Ilo, predeceased him), and by 15 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild, not to mention all those who married into the family and thought of him as their Dedo too.
Jerry is married to Stavros's first granddaughter, Dorothy.
