Theodore "Ted" Canellas of Tarrytown, (formerly of Millwood, NY) passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, April 22, 2017. He was 83 years of age. Ted was born on May 23, 1933, the son of Michael and Evelyn (Antoniadou) Canellas. He is survived by his beloved wife, Irene; loving daughters Electra (Bruce), Christina (Steven); sisters Kathryn and Frances; and his adoring grandchildren, Sophia, Georgianna, Rosemary, Theodore, Timothy, Christopher and Alexander. Ted proudly served his country in the United States Army from 1956 to 1962.  After graduating from Fordham University in 1954, with a B.S. in Pharmacy, he began his career as a pharmacist. He first worked at Burroughs Wellcome pharmaceutical company in Tuckahoe and later became owner/operator of Schoonmaker Medical Pharmacy in Scarsdale, NY where he remained until his retirement. His greatest achievement by far was being a loving and devoted husband, father and "Papou" to his seven grandchildren. His family meant everything to him. He will be deeply missed. A private funeral service was held by the family on Sunday, April 23.
