“Our dad came to the United States in 1955 as a teenager, and settled in Philadelphia. He attended West Philadelphia High School as a senior to get his language certification and diploma. He attended Villanova University for a bit but ended up serving his new country in the United States Army 1959-1962. He was a proud American.

“He served his community and Church, he was part of the parish council when St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church of Upper Darby was being built in 1965. He was the secretary of the Pan Pontian Chapter ‘Akritai’ of Upper Darby serving as the longest secretary in their history. He served the AHEPA as a 50+ year member. Our dad served many committed and social groups in Philadelphia he taught us how to interact with people and love your country.

“He was a proud Hellene, a proud father, grandfather and husband to our mother. We are so blessed to have had such wonderful parents. Our mother passed in 2004 and now our dad can join her in paradise.

“Thank you to the greater Philadelphia area for serving as home for us and accepting my father and making him a great American and Hellene. May God forgive him of any sins and accept him into his kingdom with open arms where he can join other members of our departed family.”
