George Xioufarides 75

West Lafayette - George Xioufarides, 75, of West Lafayette, passed June 8, 2018 surrounded by his family and friends. George was born January 14, 1943 in Famagusta, Cyprus to the late Christos and Margarita (Charalambous) Xioufarides. He married Maria (Jacovou) Xioufaridou on August 29, 1965 in Famagusta, Cyprus.

George was a beloved husband, father, pappou, brother, uncle, friend, and business man.

He moved to the United States from Cyprus with his wife and children in 1977 after becoming refugees. Here, he built a new life spending most of his career in the restaurant business. George and Maria were the founders of the Akropolis Restaurant in Lafayette. In 2016, they retired after dedicating 32 years serving their customers who became their restaurant family.

His kindness, generosity, and love for his family were unmatched. He treasured playing with grandchildren, hunting, fishing, and sharing stories from his many experiences. Over the years, he enjoyed welcoming many Greek and Cypriot college students, often sharing his love for playing belote cards and tavli. He also took pride in restoring classic cars, especially his favorite red 1960 Chrysler DeSoto.

Surviving along with his wife are his three children: Chris Xioufarides, Chrysa (Jeff) Moster, and Margaret (Nick) Psarros. Also surviving are eight grandchildren: Alexa Moster, George Moster, Maria Xioufaridou, Sophia Xioufaridou, Stella Moster, George Xioufarides, Maria Psarros, and Manoli Psarros.

Family and friends may join us in celebration of his life at the visitation from 5:00-8:00 pm on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at Soller-Baker Funeral Home, 1184 Sagamore Parkway West, West Lafayette.
