In Memoriam: Basilios Theodosakis

Dear Brother Archons,

The Archon office was recently notified regarding the sad news of the passing of Archon Basilios Theodosakis, Archon Depoutatos, of Brooklyn, NY, who fell asleep in the Lord on October 29, 2023. Archon Bill was invested as an Archon on March 19, 1978.

Archon Bill will long be remembered for teaming up with his beloved friend Brother Archon Kosta Vellios when they would present a compelling exhibit on The Great Καταστροφή, the burning of Smyrna, every year in the New York area parishes. I vividly recall during the Archon Millennium Pilgrimage in the year 2000 how Archons Bill and Kosta led the way when we visited Smyrna and paid our respects at the quay where thousands of Christians lost their lives trying to escape.

On behalf of the Archons of the Ecumenical Patriarchate we express our deep sympathy to his wife, Haido, his daughter Dina a true friend of the Archons and their entire family with abiding faith in our Lord and Savior and with hope in His resurrection!

Ζωή σε σας... Ζωή σε μας...
