THIS IS THE MEMORIAL FOR ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS!

GEORGE WAS UNTILL HE DIED A FRIEND OF OUR FLOWER GROUP.

My dear friend Yiorgos,Nickname George,GRAIKOS, was born in GREECE May 4th.1947.

George was Wireless Operator on Merchant Navy Vessels and travelled all around the World,visiting so many Harbours.

But the safest Harbour He found when He met and married a lovely Greek Girl,named Eugenia.

He decided,because of lovely Eugenia to give up Sailing distant Oceans and to look for a Job near His Hometown in ATHENS-GREECE.

They raised 2 Sons,Constantinos and Alexsis.

George could'n give up His Hobby,that was the Morsecode He used so much for His Profession and He decided to obtain for a Ham Radio License.He received the Official Ham Radio Callsign SV1NA.

Thats the Way I met George for the First time,via the Ether!

I visited this very nice Greek Family in ATHENS in the Year 1986,they and also other Greek Radio Amateurs like:SV1SQ-SV1OL-SV1DO-SV0DK and SV1PL have entertained me GREAT in the time I was there!
They have been fantastic Hosts and it was a very warm Welcome for me! Friends for LIFE!!!

George was succesfull finding a good Job.

A very wellknown USA Company,called PFIZER,asked George to work for them as Representativ to visit Medical Doctors and Hospitals to promote the Medicine they produced.

This was a good Job for George,several times a year He guided a Group of Doctors,visiting Medical Congresses in different European Towns.He took also care that the MD's where good Entertained during the time of the Congress!

George has been,together with me to the Annual Meeting of the "MF Runde",a GERMAN Society of Hamming,former wireless Navy Operators in 1990 in WÜRZBURG-GERMANY.

Several times,last time February 2004,George visited me,together with His 18 year old Son Constantinos,when He was with a Group of Medical Doctors for a Congress in AMSTERDAM.

George was a Friend you can SELDOM find and I miss Him very much since He died on Friday,April 2nd.2004,driving His Car,George died through a Heartattack.He could stop His Car in time on the Motorway near Athens so NO other Persons have been hurt!They found Him dead behind the Steeringwheel.

His Funeral took place on Monday,April5th.2004 on the Greek
Orthodox Cementery in His Hometown ATHENS in GREECE.

Thanks dear George,it was an Honor for me to be your Friend!

Rest in Peace Old Boy, I will NEVER forget you !

Please pray for George and donate flowers for Him.

Thank you!
