Jim Nassas • September 30, 1933 - February 10, 2021

Jim Nassas began life in Ammohori, a village in northern Greece, but lived 65 of his 87 years in Canada. Still, he was forever passionate about his homeland, Macedonia. Jim was an active man who enjoyed being outdoors. He was a regular sight riding his bicycle around town and spent many afternoons at Minnow Lake or Ramsey Lake. In winter months he tended his beloved wood stove and in all seasons pursued bargains as befit his thrifty nature. Gregarious, with an engaging smile, he loved to make people laugh. When his time came he left this world with daughter Kathy and son George by his side. He was predeceased by his wife Tina and daughter Sophie. Also his sister Patricia Peroff and brother Lame Nassas. He is fondly remembered by nephew Peter Peroff; nieces Freida Nassas, Pauline Bona, and Nicky Nassas; close family Peter, Lefka, John, Litsa, and Dan Paraskevopoulos; and a large extended family in Greece, Germany, and Australia.

Doing a good job was important to Jim which won him much respect from colleagues and he found reward in return. He had many fond memories of his years as a railway man in Labrador. Here in Sudbury, people were forever recognizing him as that gentleman who worked at Varsity Billiards and later Christ The King Church. He was devoted to his family and did not hesitate to help others in need. To honour this we kindly request donations to Blue Door Café (Soup Kitchen) as Jim''s memory will continue to help others.

Jimmy loved to tell stories. His memory for them was detailed and often included morals. I learned so many things from him. For instance, when working on a railway line, never leave your shovel laying on the ground - stand it up and you'll never lose it. He often saved me hours of unnecessary work by suggesting shortcuts and ways of using tools to get better results. Being Mr 'Canadian Tire', his garage is a delight of organized bits and bolts, collected over the years and awaiting new projects. Jimmy loved a project and when his hands would no longer serve his creative desire he had a solid foot that held many a board or plank while i cut, drilled or screwed them in place. His eye for detail was exceptional partially due to his ability to sit quietly and silently watching the world around him. One time he saved me from a great potential disaster. The day before leaving on a trip in my old van, he noticed some hornets flying in and out of a vent. Sure enough, they had built a nest and were moving in. He counted them as i smoked them out until the eviction was complete and i could cover the vent until leaving. What an eye.

Jimmy brought the Mediterranean to Sudbury. The Sun was his constant companion and in the summer he glowed like a buddha, shirtless and happy. And what a great sense of humour. While driving around town, he would occasionally make a short quip that would have me snort-laughing for a good 5minutes. I wish i wouldn't written some of them down - they were comic poetry from an angle completely unexpected. He was a gentle man, a wonderful mentor and my friend.
