Dearly loved husband of Traiani for 59 years.

He is now playing his clarinet and dancing the zaramo and pouscheno as he makes his way up to heaven. We will always carry the wonderful memories over the years of Con playing at all the Greek/Florinian dances, picnics, christenings and weddings and an abundance of family celebrations within the wonderful Greek communities in Melbourne, Australia and Greece. That twinkle in his eyes and his love of music will always be remembered and he was playing till the day he died. His greatest achievement was his wonderful loving family.
Always in our hearts.
