In loving memory of Louis K. Verros, a resilient soul at age 90, peacefully passed away on February 4, 2024.  He was born on March 18, 1933 in a village in Greece named Louka, Tripoli.  He was a devoted and loving husband to his wife of 55 years, Petroula (Doulas).  Loving father of Konstadina (Sotirios) Georgelos and Bob (Sophia) Verros.  Proud pappouli of Valerie (Peter) Kotsiovos, Patricia (Leo-Paul) Bezanis, Pamela Georgelos, Petra and Christina Verros.  Great pappouli of Christos, Evi, and Sam Kotsiovos.  Dearest brother of late Fotini (late Manoli) Drogossis, late Panagiotis (late Eleni) Verros, late James (Katina) Verros, late Evagelia (late Dimitrios) Psyhogios, George (Toula) Verros, Eugenia (Peter) Kioussis, Vasiliki (late Petro) Doukas, late Thanasis and late Tasia Verros (passed at birth).  Dearest brother-in-law of Nikoletta (late Harry) Panos, George (Maria) Doulas, late Vasilios (Lynn) Doulas, Anastasios (Effie) Doulas.  Proud uncle of many nieces and nephews. 

He embarked on a journey from Greece on April 19, 1966, to create a new chapter in his life in the USA.  His immigrant spirit inspired all who knew him. He was a proud union worker at Radio Flyer manufacturing factory where he produced the famous red wagon.  Notably, he started his own band, Asteria, captivating audiences with the traditional Greek music of his clarinet and leaving a lasting mark on the hearts of those who listened. Behind his musical pursuits, he found joy in revisiting his roots.  After retirement, he spent many summers indulging in the beauty of his home in Milia, Tripoli, Greece.  Year after year, he immensely enjoyed the strong bonds of friendship he had established there, and was excited for his return the next summer. Additionally, he had a passion for fixing broken things with duct tape and ropes, and spending many weekends at the flea market in pursuit for the perfect finds.  He was “Mr. Fix it.” 

His zest for life extended to the outdoors where he delighted in riding his bike and cultivating the Earth through gardening.  May the echoes of his music, the warmth of summers in Greece, and the deep love for his family be everlasting of his remarkable legacy.  His memory will be eternal in our hearts. All arrangements entrusted to Orrico Kourelis Funeral Services Inc.
