Chris Economides, Revered Ahepan and Sons of Pericles Slalwart, is Mourned

NEW YORK – The Order of AHEPA is mourning the passing of Chris Economides, 83, who served in numerous positions with distinction and is especially remembered for his support for the Sons of Pericles young adult division.

AHEPA’s Executive Director Basil Mossaides sent the sad notice to the Order’s members: “I have the sad duty to inform you that our dear brother Chris Economides passed away today about 30 minutes ago in Charlotte, NC. He was a life member of Ahepa who served in many elected positions but was best remembered as THE champion of the Sons of Pericles having been the national advisor for nearly 20 years. He was a father figure to many and he will be missed. I will relay funeral plans when they become available. May his memory be eternal.

Messages from those who knew him and appreciated Economides’ contributions to the Greek-American community began appearing on the internet immediately,

“The Chapter Theseus SHJ-02 of the Sons of Pericles mourns the loss of the longtime National Advisor Chris Economides, better known as “Mr. E”.”

“Mr. E was a champion of the Sons of Pericles and helped our organization grow to where it is today. He will be remembered fondly by the entire AHEPA Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. May his memory be eternal, we will miss you Mr. E.”
