Dimitrios (Jim) Bakatselos 
August 2, 1965-July 22, 2022

Dimitrios (Jim) Bakatselos, age 56, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida passed away on Friday, July 22, 2022. He was born to Platon and Elefteria Bakatselos on August 2, 1965, and was raised in Toronto, Canada. As a young man, Jim worked in the family gas station business alongside his dad and brother Telly. Later, Jim became the owner/CFO of Electronics Unlimited. 

Jim met his wife, Tara, in high school at the age of 15. They had a fairy tale love story. On January 14, 1989, Jim and Tara married. They have three beautiful daughters: Christina (John) , Eleni, and Alexandra. Jim has one brother Telly ( Melissa), two brother-in-laws Michael and Shawn (Olga), and one sister-in-law Kerry. He is also the uncle to three nephews and six nieces. 

For those of us familiar with Jim, you know his infectious love for every person he met. He was a kindhearted soul who always wanted to help any person he knew. He will be missed tremendously by his wife, daughters, parents, brother, and family. May his memory be eternal.
