Loukas (edited)Peacefully at University Hospital on Thursday, November 26, 2015, in his 94th year. Beloved husband of Chloy Loukas. Predeceased by his first wife Angeliki Loukas (1966). Cherished father of Gus (Anne) Loukas and Georgina (John) Mihalopulos. Adored grandfather of George, Ted and Angelika Mihalopulos, and Ted, Angelika and Athena Loukas, and the late Jeremy Norris.

Terry was an officer in the underground resistance (better known as the Andartes), in the western part of Greece. The Resistance fighters along with special British forces succeeded in this mission together. In his later years, when he retired, Terry spearheaded the Antistasei organization here in London, Ontario.

One of their most cherished causes was raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Western Ontario, here in London.
