George K. Konstantopoulos was born in Lantzoi Ilias, Greece on January 6th, 1939. He was the only child to Konstantinos and Anastasia Konstantopoulos, who preceded him in death. Aside from his schooling, George helped his family with their crops. He had a ravishing, tall, white horse named Chilli. He took care of him and cherished him like a friend. At the age of 17, he fell in love with a beautiful young lady in his village named Georgia. George would ride his horse, and sing, while passing by Georgia’s house, so that she knew he was home. He had a great voice. They proclaimed their love for each other by secretly leaving love notes under a large rock. He and Georgia got engaged before he left for the Greek army. Upon completion of his service, they wanted to solidify their love, and by receiving God’s blessing, they got married on December 4th, 1962. They welcomed to their family their first daughter, Anastasia, in 1963, and their second daughter, Konstantina, in 1965. George wanted to provide a better future to his family, and migrated to the United States in 1970. He wanted to establish a good foundation, before his wife and two daughters came to the United States in 1971. He lived his life with honor and pride. He made sure that he taught these qualities to his daughters and grandchildren. His faith in God was strong. He was a hustler, and always fought for what is true, right and fair. George felt fulfilled, when helping others in need. He had a big, generous heart, and was a pleaser. He always enjoyed a good laugh, and loved being surrounded by family and friends.
George is survived by his wife of 61 years, Georgia, his two daughters, Anastasia and Konstantina, and his five grandchildren, Maria, Demitri, George, Gregory and Georgeea.
