CIDROFF, Constantin (Dinço) 1922-2019 It is with great sadness that the family of Constantin (Dinço) Cidroff announces his passing on April 16 at the age of 97 years. Dinço will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 65 years, Lubka, his children Marouchka, Argirço Dean (Sheila) and his adored grandchild­ren Natasha, Sabrina and James. Dinço will be remembered by his family and friends as a loving father, devoted husband and caring grandfathe­r who valued education, his faith, and above all else, his family. He was a mentor and role model to all of his close family members, always interested in everyone’s lives and frequently offering advice. We will sadly miss his presence at family gatherings, when he would quote famous leaders such as Churchill and Napoleon and recall historical events with such clarity. We will also fondly remember his favourite proverb “si jeunesse savait, si vieillesse pouvait” along with his last music request, Besame Mucho. Visitation will be at the Collins Clarke MacGillivr­ay White Funeral Home, Dignity Memorial, 307 Promenade Riverside, St-Lambert, QC on Friday, April 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. A mass will be held in his honour at the St Ivan Rilski Church at 1191 Rue Sauvé East, Montreal, QC on Saturday, April 20 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please send your donations to The Jewish General Hospital or St Ivan Rilski Church.

BRESTANSKY, Larry Jan 29, 1958 - Apr 15, 2019 Passing away too soon, peacefully in his sleep, Larry was a very humorous man who dedicated his last days to helping take care of his mother, Mary Lastiuka (Brestansky). Larry was well known in the printing industry where he worked all his life and most recently at Paragraph printing where he was his happiest since many years. He leaves to mourn his daughters Lisa (Kambi), Natasha (Corey), brothers Dale (Vivianne), Alan (Lynn), Donna Venditello (Nick), who was more like a sister than a cousin, ex-wife Sylvie Duchaîne, and his nieces and nephews as well as all those fortunate enough to get to know this kind, loving soul. Peace Larry. Service will be at 2 pm sharp, Monday, April 22, at Cimetière des Trembles, 15005 Sherbrooke St. East #2, Montréal, H1A 3X1, followed by a celebratio­n of his life at a local restaurant. PAPADOPOUL­OU, Nancy Apr 11, 1940 - Apr 16, 2019 Born in Orestiada, Greece in 1940 to Peter and Despina, Nancy survived war, famine and the loss of her mother at an early age to flourish in London, Toronto and Montreal. Ever stylish and cultured, she was an accomplish­ed businesswo­man and pillar of the Greek Community, often the first person people turned to for advice and the first person they invited to a party. A short but determined battle against cancer ended on April 16, 2019. Her greatest role was mother to Georges and Dimitra (Yianni) and greatest joy, Yiayia to Alexander. Sister to Christos, Tasia, Diana (Basil) and George (Toula). Godmother to her nieces Joanna and Despina and many others. Aunt to Despina (Guy), Athena and George and the many children of her siblings in Athens and Ambelakia. Yiayia Nancy to Basil, Yiorgos-Alexandros, Hunter and Violette. The family is grateful for the attention Aspasia, Costas and Stella as well as countless other friends lavished on her in these final weeks, as well as the staff at Hôpital Marie-Clarac. Visitation to be held on Saturday, April 20th between 3 and 7 PM at Blythe Bernier Funeral Home, 940 Avenue Ogilvy, Montreal. In lieu of flowers, donations in Nancy's memory to the Fondation Hôpital Marie-Clarac are suggested. WADE, Leslie May 27, 1929 - Apr 14, 2019 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Leslie John Wade, on April 14th 2019, at the age of 89, beloved husband of Lillias, loving father to his daughters Linda (Albert), Donna (Edouard), and Susan (David), and devoted grandfathe­r of James and Amanda.
