Farewell Takis Nikolopoulos

The man best remembered as ‘Kolokotronis’ at the annual Hellenic Independence Day Parade on Fifth Avenue, Panayiotis Nikolopoulos, passed away of a sudden heart attack last week. A prominent figure in the Omogeneia of New York, Mr. Nikolopoulos was a Board member for the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York.

RIP Mr. Nikolopoulos, you will surely be missed.
