I am sorry for the loss of your father. My mother knew your father, and while she was living, wondered where he was living. In 1931, my grandmother, Elaine Katsimbas Karampetsos, left Great Falls, Montana with her two daughters, Kathrin (3 yrs.) my mother, and her sister Anthoula (1) to return to her village, Karoutes. I recall my mother saying that your father was born while they were living in Karoutes. My grandmother, mother, and aunt returned to the United States in 1936. I know they visited with your father at some point, but beyond that, I can't recall. I found his obituary while looking for pictures of Karoutes for my family records. May his memory be eternal!
