On December 21, my valiant warrior decided it was time to put down his sword and finally rest. He is now with my brother, Alex, and his brother, Vangelis hopefully sitting in a kafenion drinking an ouzo talking philosophy and politics.. He came to this country in the early 1960s with a thirst for knowledge and his accomplishments are extraordinary. He always was there to help anyone in need and he was the finest man I know. He took his last breath with my mom and I holding him; he was surrounded by love and he is respected by anyone who knew him. He was a professor, an author, a winemaker, a bee keeper, a dancer, a chef, a student for life ... he was everything, and I will miss him forever. I love you baba!!!
