Obituary for Pericles George Apostolou

Pericles George Apostolou, 93, of Falls Church, Virginia, passed away tragically on Friday, January 18, 2019. Perry was born May 25, 1925 in Epiniana, Evritanias, Greece. A small mountain village tucked away in the central mainland. He was the beloved son of the late George and Sofia Apostolou. The second of five children he immigrated to the United States in the mid-fifties where he lived and worked in Chicago, San-Francisco and Coos Bay, Oregon. Eventually returning to Greece in the early Sixties where he met and married Eleftheria Gournelos and soon returned to the U.S. After a few years in Welch, WV they would finally settle in the Washington DC/Northern VA area.

Perry nurtured, cared for and loved his family with great compassion and great generosity. And he extended his love to everyone he encountered throughout his life. He was an avid chef and baker and you would always find him in the kitchen. He had such a zest for life and was always ready with a kind word, quick wit and a loaf of bread.

He leaves son Chrisostomos Apostolou and daughter Sofia Kehayias and her husband Anastasios and grandaughter Eleftheria, his dear brother Panos Apostolou and sister Litsa Xaniotis, and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded by his wife of 40 years Eleftheria, his son George, his brother Lambros and his sister Rena.
