After 20 years in business, Siriopoulos's sons Dino and Paul joined the family business full-time, and are leading Tower going forward. Tower celebrated its 40th anniversary with a party for staff and family last year.

The original printing facility was only 750 square feet but has grown to 25,000 square feet at its current location in Scarborough. It provides prepress, printing and finishing.

A visitation for Tassos will be held Friday, April 20 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Highland Funeral Home, 10 Cachet Woods Ct. in Markham, followed by a funeral service on Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church located at 3840 Finch Ave. E. in Scarborough.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the Oncology Department at Mt. Sinai Hospital.
