    (August 20, 1934-circa June 8, 2017)
    Born in Vourvoura, Greece
    Emigrated to Canada in 1954
    Died in London, Ontario
    Invented the Hawaiian Pizza
    Who introduced PINEAPPLE as a PIZZA TOPPING? HE DID!
    This introduction was controversial, rippling among pizza aficionados all over the world.
    He was a GREEK man in Canada that ran a restaurant that served Chinese food (during the 60's).
    He then named the pizza 'Hawaiian Pizza,' not Canadian pizza.
    In his young adult years, he worked as a miner.
    He was married to his wife Christina from 1967 until his death.
    On a trip to Italy, he enjoyed pizza there, then brought the idea of having pizza available in London (Ontario), perfecting the pie in his restaurant.
    His introducing pineapple as a pizza topping (accompanied by ham or Canadian bacon) was inspired by Chinese cuisine, bringing sweet and savory flavors to one dish.
    The argument on whether pineapple belongs on pizza resurrected in social media in 2017!
    Justin Trudeau responded to the controversy by tweeting 'I have a pineapple. I have a pizza. And I stand behind this delicious Southwestern Ontario creation!'
    He was known by family and friends as extremely social and a great story teller.
