Sincere condolences to a fellow Rotarian whom I have always admired for his courtesy that he no doubt learned from his father.

A special family birthday Celebration with the Anastopoulos Family
Mr. Anastopoulos was such a shining beacon of light throughout my life. I have such fond memories growing up with the Anastopoulos family and recall how Mr. A's generous nature always came with a positive attitude. He made people smile and feel welcomed. He was the kind of person that made others feel good about themselves. It was an honor to have grown up with such a positive role model especially during those times when there was so much darkness. He will be truly missed. Rest in Peace, Mr. A. You hold a special place in so many of our hearts.
