GIANNOULIS _ Dr. Dimitrios Jim 1969 - 2008 Dr. Dimitrios Jim Giannoulis passed away in Vancouver, BC on March 23, 2008 after a valiant battle with cancer. Dimitrios was born September 13, 1969 in Calgary, AB. He completed his secondary education at Strathcona Tweedsmuir in Okotoks, before going to McGill University where he completed his Bachelor Science in 1991. He attended University of Alberta, graduating from Medicine in 1995, and then completed his Anesthesia residency at University of British Columbia in 2000. Dimitrios loved the city of Vancouver, and was happy to join the Anesthesia department of Vancouver General Hospital, where his love for his profession and adopted city prompted him to actively recruit resident students to the Anesthesia program in Vancouver. Dimitrios was well known for his humor that would break the ice, the music that he always had playing - even in the operating room and most of all, for the dignity and compassion he shared with everyone he encountered. Dimitrios was a very dear person to his family who will miss his generosity, kindness and passion for the treasure of family moments. He is survived by his parents, Constantinos and Adamantia Giannoulis; his siblings and their families, Constantina Giannoulis-Stuart and her husband Gerry, Maria Petropoulos and her husband George and their sons Nonda, Kosta and Lukas, all of Calgary. There are many aunts, uncles and cousins in Calgary, Montreal, USA, Greece and Europe who will miss his joy for life. The family would like to gratefully acknowledge the professional care and compassion provided by the St. Paul's Hospital Intensive Care Unit.
