Nickolaos E. Tzortzopoulos

This is to inform everyone who had the privilege to have known and loved my father, Nickoloas E. Tzortopoulos born Karavas 1939, that he has lost his battle of the past one and a half years, to pancreatic cancer. Nick has left behind his loving wife of 51 years Patricia, his 6 children (he had fathered 7 children, but lost Athens, his second daughter in June 2007 they are now buried side by side in the cemetery of Karavas ) Angela the first born, Leone, Sophia, Rose, Lucky, George the youngest and a long string of grand children and great grand children of which are living in Australia, Greece and Denmark. At a tender age of just 12 years old, Nick was sent to a foreign country, that country being Australia, he did not know the language and vaguely knew his uncle and aunty to whom he would be living and working with for the next many years. Mean while Nick met Patricia, fell in love and started a family never giving up with the dream of one day returning home to Kythera, he is in fact one of the few that did make the dream come true in June of 1978. Nick was a kind, generous and loving person and has left an impression on all those who have been fortunate enough to have met him. He has helped many people in his life, and always had time to give a helping hand and it came from deep within his heart. Nick was a hard working man, he was not a materialistic man; the simple things in life are what counted to him. He will be deeply missed, Kythera, Platia Ammos will never be the same without him. Nick, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a friend - you live on within us all - may you rest in peace. Your loving family. Nickolaos E. Tzortzopoulos - Scanned at 01-11-2009 18-28
