Dean Coroneos

Queensland Government Garden Certificate awarded to Theo Corones.

Theo lived at the time in Bargara, Queensland.

Theothosios Koroneos - Theo Corones - was sponsored to Australia, as a youth, by his maternal uncle George, and aunty Georgia, later of Beverley Hills.

He lost a leg to an infection in his early twenties.

Part of his rehabilitation involved art therapy. He later became quite a famous artist in "Kytherian" circles.

He settled in Sydney, and drove cabs for many decades, before attempting later in life to re-establish himself in Karavas, Kythera.

He returned to Australia, and retired to the North Queensland coastal town of Bargara.
