His family has requested that anyone wishing to make a donation in his memory do so to Kivotos tou Kosmou and the Cerebral Palsy Society Open Door (Eteria Prostasias Spastikon Porta Anichti).

The government will accord him full state honors and has declared a period of public mourning through the day of his funeral, with flags flying at half mast.
