Danforth shooting victims Julianna Kozis, Reese Fallon to be laid to rest today

Funerals for the two people killed in a shooting rampage on Toronto’s Danforth Avenue just over a week ago will be held today.

Reese Fallon, 18, will be laid to rest in Scarborough, while 10-year-old Julianna Kozis’s funeral is being held at a Greek Orthodox church in Markham.

About a hundred mourners stood outside the church as a full funeral procession arrived at around 10 a.m.

Church bells echoed through the quiet neighbourhood near Warden and 19th avenues as a small, white casket was taken into the church building.

Juliana’s father, who friends say was also injured in the leg during the shooting, was helped up the church stairs by family members.
Julianna was a synchronized swimmer who last season was with the Markham Synchro Club as a 10-and-under competitive athlete.”Julianna was a beautiful, aspiring athlete who was in her third year in our sport,” Synchro Swim Ontario said in a statement last week.

A neighbour, Leslee Wells, told CBC News: “She’s just a very sweet little soul, [and] when I was taking my dog for a walk, she would be dancing out in front of the house, not a care in the world.”

Not far away in suburban Scarborough, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to attend
Fallon’s funeral.
