Philip Georgoulakos

June 16, 1938 – February 28, 2021

Philip (Foti) Georgoulakos, 82, left the bonds of his earthly body under a full moon on Sunday, the 28th of February, 2021. He was surrounded in love by his family at home, praying as he gently and peacefully departed this life.

He was born on June 16, 1938, in Itilon, Mani, Greece, and came to the U.S. as a young man, living in New York before moving to Charlotte, NC, in 1976.

Those left to cherish Philip’s memory include his wife of 52 years, Irene Georgoulakos; daughter, Vahni Levitt and beloved son-in-law Craig Levitt; his son Jason Georgoulakos, and grandchildren, Alexander Jason and Liliana Evania Georgoulakos; brothers Steve and John Georgoulakos, and many loving in-laws, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sisters Stacy Vlahos and Potoula Poulos, and brothers Paul Georgoulakos and William Georges. Oh Philip, our broken-down suitcase…we are going to miss you.

The Trisagion and Funeral Services for Mr. Georgoulakos will be held at 11:00 AM, Thursday, the 4th of March, 2021 at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral. Interment will follow in Evergreen Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 600 East Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28203 to the Philip Georgoulakos Memorial Fund.

May His Memory Be Eternal.
