It is with deep sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of Kanakis Grillakis on June 23, 2022, from Chania, Crete, Greece, after a beautiful and full life at the age of 93.

Beloved husband of Eleni Goniotakis for 64 years. Loving father to his daughters Alexandra and Erasmia (Louis Borondy). Cherished grandfather to John Kanakis and Eleni Violet. Beloved son of the late Apostolos Grillakis and the late Alexandra Mavriyianakis, Dear brother of the late Manousos (Ioanna) and the late Agiroula (late Markos) and the late George (Christina) and brother-in-law of the late Chrisoula (Joseph) and the late Elizabeth (late George).

He will be fondly remembered by his nephews, nieces, as well as relatives and friends.

Kanakis was a guiding light whose love showed the way and is forever imprinted on our hearts.

Agape mou, Baba, Papou you are eternal and without end.
