John Papadakis dies suddenly, of heart failure, at age 58

Road Warrior News is sad to report that contributor John Papadakis passed away suddenly on July 12th, 2021, of a heart failure.

John Papadakis was a popular Councillor on East York Council before the Borough was amalgamated with the City of Toronto in 1997. He was a busy paralegal specializing in traffic ticket defence and was preparing a series of columns titled “Who was at fault?” for RWN at the time of his death, which was sudden, at Michael Garron Hospital. John leaves behind his brother Frank and his mother, Helen.
