Themos, apart from being the heart and soul of the paper, was also a friend, a colleague and a brother of us all at Proto Thema.

He faced his impossible battle with cancer filled with courage, bravery and dignity and fought till the end, as he did throughout his life.

He died at hospital. He was 61.

Farewell Themos. Your memory will live on”.
