Dear Marica and Elaine, Your Father was a good man and a good friend. I will miss my daily conversations with him after your Mother's death. It is comforting to know they are now together and we shall see them again. May his memory be eternal!

John A. Fotinos, 88, of Houston, passed away on Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014. He was born on January 29, 1926 to Arthur and Marica Fotinos on the island of Patmos in Greece.

John immigrated to the United States in 1937 with his mother and sister to join his father who had immigrated years prior to Houston in search of a better life for his family. He attended Crockett Elementary, Hogg Junior High and Sam Houston Senior High. John married Margaret Krikris in 1959 in Patmos, Greece and was a devoted husband for 53 years. He was the loving father of two daughters, Elaine and Marica.
