Nick Panakos

May 19, 1963 ~ January 1, 2021 (age 57)


Nick Panakos of Maple, Ontario passed away suddenly on Friday, January 1st 2021 at the age of 57.

Beloved husband of Celia Panakos and loving father of Astaya and Alexia Panakos.

Nick’s most favourite place on earth was Disney World, you could even say it was his second home. He knew this was a place to not only cherish special moments with his family, but feel the magic of youthfulness at any age.

Nick worked as a steamfitter for the Toronto District School Board, but his passion was teaching his trade. Nick worked hard to obtain his teaching degree and worked at the Local UA46 and at HiMark Trade School as a part time instructor. He loved teaching and cared for every student and did whatever he could to help them succeed.

Nick was a wonderful husband, father, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, mentor, and friend to many. He will be truly missed, for his time here on earth was cut short. May he rest in peace.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date (TBD). If you would like to attend, please send your contact information to

In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation to a women's shelter or an animal shelter of your choosing would be greatly appreciated.


You can still show your support by sending flowers directly to the family, or by planting a memorial tree in the memory of Nick Panakos
