He will be greatly missed by his first cousins Emmy, Spyro, Nickie and Nicole and many cousins in the Kokolis, Sarantakos, Mexis, Farantos and Stratis families and many friends turned family Thania, Savas, Sengul and Thano.

Yianni is preceded in death by his grandfather Angelo Mageras and step father Hassen Salih.

    Dear Georgia, We express our condolences and sympathy to you and your family. There is a passage in Corinthians that I always remember And it says for us to "........fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." May Yianni's memory be eternal. Our love to you always,
