Dear Brother Archons,
It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news of the passing of Archon Dr. George J. Korkos, Archon Aktouarios, of Elm, Wisconsin who fell asleep in the Lord on May 28. Archon Dr. George was invested as an Archon on March 8, 1987. His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America presided over his funeral services yesterday in Milwaukee, WI. He was 89 and was predeceased by his wife of 59 years Penny. Brother Archon Dr. George is survived by his children, Dr. James Korkos, Dr. Thomas (Dr. Christina) Korkos, and Kathryn (Dr. Charles) Theofilos; his eight grandchildren: Alexa Korkos, Nicole (Austin) Knapp, Demetra, George and Maria Korkos, and Stefan, Nicholas, and James Theofilos; his sister Evangeline Karioris; brother Nick Korkos; and many loving nieces, nephews, godchildren, and friends.
In his eulogy, Archbishop Elpidophoros stated “Like so many of you in this Cathedral today, I have traveled here to pay tribute to one of the great Hellenes of America, and one of the great human beings of our time, Dr. George Korkos.”
On behalf of the Order of Saint Andrew, Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate we express our deep sympathy to his family with abiding faith in our Lord and Savior and with hope in His resurrection!
Ζωή σε σας... Ζωή σε μας...
