Constantinos (Gus/Tsolias) Horianopoulos

August 4, 1938 – May 20, 2020
Constantinos was born in Athens, Greece to Orsalia and Artemios Horianopoulos. At 17 years old, without speaking English, he was sent to Banff, Alberta to help at his Uncles’ restaurant and complete his schooling. Constantinos moved to Kitimat to work at Alcan but left in 1961 and travelled to Montreal to play competitive soccer as a goalie. While there, he met his wife, Catherine of 58 years, and they returned for a brief stay in Prince Rupert, eventually making Kitimat their permanent residence. Constantinos worked as a milkman before resuming his employment at Alcan. In 1994, he began a long, active and healthy retirement from Alcan, travelling often to his beloved country of Greece, fishing in the Kitimat River, and having coffee with his best friend, George. Constantinos lived his life full of zest and energy. He was extremely charismatic, had an engaging personality that captivated people and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Constantinos will be missed dearly by his wife, Catherine and their 4 children, Ursula (Les), Artemios (Mary), Angela (Rob) and Sam (Sylvia) – his grandchildren, Justin, Michael, Adam (Megan), Reagan, Alexa, Linda, Steven, Zachary, Anthony and Benjamin – 2 great grandchildren, Olivia and Lux, and many other family and friends.
We wish to express our deepest gratitude to the doctors at Vancouver General Hospital and Kitimat General Hospital, along with the Home and Community Care Service nurses who cared for him and supported us during this difficult journey.
