Love you and miss you my brother.
I hadn't spoken to Ari in several months but we always touched base a couple times a year since we no longer coached at VC any longer. My son's, who fondly remember Ari as one of their first line coaches at school, found out the tragic news upon their return from university two days ago. I am so saddened by this news and can't really believe it. Our sympathies go out to the family and Ari will be held in our prayers. I am saddened that I have learned of Ari's passing so long after the fact. I will miss him. He was a great man.
We pass our deepest condolences to the Mellios family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. hugs to all of the family. Ari was a nice and kind person. he will be missed. from Deedee crowther (Carefoot) I believe ari use to play foot ball for the north delta association if he did i use to cheer lead for that team in north delta and he was a great football player too.
Our hearts are filled with sadness and prayers are sent for you wishing you strength and moments of peace during this very difficult time. Ari made all he met smile and the world a little brighter. There is not a memory we have of him without a smile. He was a gift.
With affection George, Linda, Costa, Nico Docolas
A very loving father and all round amazing man. I first met Mr. Mellios when he coached me in football and took an immediate liking to him. His sense of humor and warmth defined him a person of tremendous character. He will be incredibly missed by his friends and loving family.
