 John Zafiropoulos (72) passed away peacefully on Monday, November 16, 2020, at his home surrounded by family. He was born in Theohtisto, Arcadia, Greece on November 14, 1948, and was one of six children. He was married August 23, 1981, to Dina Merkouri and was a devoted husband and father for the rest of his life. He loved watching soccer, listening and dancing to Greek music, the Orthodox faith, and he always had a special place in his heart for animals. He was a fighter; he was a lung and prostate cancer survivor until his decline in health due to dementia. He is survived by his loving wife Dina, and by their children Kosta Zafiropoulos of Belvidere and Tanya Zafiropoulos (fiancé Joseph Lukowski) of Des Plaines, along with siblings, nieces, nephews and friends here and in Greece. He was preceded in death by his parents and his older brother. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society or the St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church Building Together Fund.
