Private Demetrios Diplaros
Private Demetrios Diplaros was born on 21 November 1984, in East York, Ontario. He enrolled in the Canadian Forces on 14 December 2005 and came to the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment, 4 August 2006 upon completion of basic infantry training.
Pte Diplaros was on his first operational tour as part of Operation Athena in Kandahar, Afghanistan. An exceptional driver and gunner, he was immensely proud of his military service.
Demetrios always had a smile on his face no matter what the circumstances. He is remembered for his fantastic sense of humour and as a brave young man who was dedicated to his family and the service of his country. He will be sorely missed by family and friends.
