A Tribute to John Tzakas

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

John Tzakas of J & T Food Services passed away early Monday morning, culminating a year-long battle with cancer. John was a fixture of the Tyndale Community for many years, always ready to give a smile and wry comment to all he served. He will be greatly missed by Tyndale's students and staff. Here are a few memories of John:

"I think out of all my years as a student, I think the thing that stuck out to me the most about John was the joy that he showed when serving the students and staff of Tyndale. For John, it was more than just a job, it was what he loved to do." - Nathan Veley, Maintenance Coordinator

"One of the things I will always remember about John is his smile and welcoming spirit. He always wanted to know how your day was - he was always genuinely interested in how you were doing." - Karen Soltau, Supervisor of Hospitality Services
