In memory of my dear friend, there was never a dull moment in our 30 years of friendship. I am filled with great sadness that he should have been taken so early, so young and with so much left to give all of us that knew him. He rescued me from certain imprisonment or worse in Greece and all we did was laugh about it. I met him at LSE many years ago and often said, " If I was not an Irishman , I would want to be Greek". He would not trade.
Always ,remembered.

My friend, my patient, my kindred spirit born within a few weeks of me in 1951, Andreas in Greece and me in Canada, is gone.

He was a good man and a good friend, and I will miss him.

Andreas was a true professional and more importantly a kind and welcoming person. I met Andreas at the beginning of my career and enjoyed his company inside and outside of work. Myself and a couple of friends travelled to California a few years ago, Andreas as welcoming and accommodating as he was invited us to stay at his place for an evening, I have never had a filet mignon as good as that!! It was a pleasure to have known Andreas he will be missed by many.

Andreas, wow what a great guy. Always supportive and a wealth of information. I worked with him over several years on Design Board 16 and thru several technical projects. He was always my go-to guy on any composite processing question…. And, of course, any questions about fine wines. During any dinner get togethers her would always select the best Pino’s… Anytime I now open a select vintage I will think of him. He will be truly missed.

Andreas was a dear friend and mentor. His warm Greek spirit always made my day. I valued his knowledge, his humor, and his ability to make me feel like I was the most important person to him every time we spoke. When I first started working in composites, I took a trip to California to learn more about the product. Andreas welcomed me and the group I was with into his home for a night of fun socializing over drinks and learning more about his Greek culture. I still can remember him discussing how the origin of common words all steam from the. Since then he always made a point to visit me when he was in Ohio which always made my day. I will miss Andreas smile and hold dear the lessons he taught me in friendship and leadership.

I met Andreas more than a decade ago when we were both playing volleyball with a group in Irvine. We soon discovered that we knew many of the same people and quickly became good friends. I had the pleasure of being in Greece last year to celebrate Andreas' birthday in Athens with his friends there. It's very sad that he didn't have many more birthdays to celebrate in his life. He will be missed.

A rare individual who can be both friend and mentor. A blessing to have known him. I met him during my interview process at GE and little did I know what a significant part he would play in my career and personal life. We all will will miss you dearly.

Speaking for myself and all of CHI, we are so saddened at the loss of a great friend. We started working with Andreas 25 years ago, he has always been a knowledgeable, honest and fair representative for GE. He was a true pillar of the composites industry, he is greatly missed. Our prayers are with the family.
