Harry Lee Theodosis

Harry L. Theodosis, died November 27, 2015 at a rehabilitation hospital in Sherman, Texas. Harry moved to Texas after living most of his live in Torrance, California.
Born in Gary, Indiana in 1931, Harry traveled with his blind mother and 4 siblings on a train to California where they met up with his father, Philip Theodosis, who at the time, was working in the steel mill in Torrance. Harry's father was an immigrant from a small island in Greece called Zante.
His love for baseball, landed him with a contract, straight from graduating from Torrance High School, where he was a lettered athlete, to the minor leagues; Pacific Coast League, where he stood on the pitcher's mound for a few years until he developed "pitcher's elbow" which ended his baseball career. Harry's love and passion for baseball never stopped as he then began coaching his son's little league teams and continued on coaching the seniors from Torrance High in a league outside the high school. During this time he worked for the Daily Breeze and then for Arden-Mayfair Milk Industry. Up until his moving from California, Harry attended each and every Class Reunion that Torrance High had.
He is survived by his younger brother, Danny Theodosis; his son, Marty; and his two daughters, Denise Theodosis Allen and Pauline Theodosis Farinha. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
