Peter Tassopulos Obituary
Peter Tassopulos was born on November 2, 1926 in Los Angeles, California. His parents, James and Georgia Tassopulos, were Greek immigrants. He earned his B.A. from UCLA. In the late 1950's and early 1960's, he owned and operated a candy store at the corner of 5th and Hill in downtown Los Angeles with his brother Gus Tassopulos. Subsequently, he taught English and American Literature at Glendale High School for more than twenty years. He was an avid handball player competing in local tournaments at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, and in national senior tournaments. He also loved to travel, visiting most of the major cities of western Europe, but also seeking out destinations that were not typical for American tourists, the Soviet Union in 1966, and China in 1981. He is survived by Venetta, his wife of fifty-five years, his son, Jim, his sister Mary Poloynis, his brother, Gus Tassopulos, nieces Nikki Salmas, Georgia Magoulias, and Andrea Tassopulos, and nephews Chris Poloynis and Paul Tassopulos. A Trisagion will be held on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 10:30 a.m., with Funeral Services to follow at 11:00 a.m. at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 9501 Balboa Blvd, Northridge, California.
