George Philippou: [Heath 1976–1983]

It is with great regret that we report the death of George Philippou in Cyprus on , aged 56 years, after contracting Covid-19.

A memorial service was held on at Ayios Fanourios Church, Aredippou.

In response to a message of condolence, his wife, Andria wrote, enclosing these photographs:

I have received your card this morning, and much appreciated all your kind hearted thoughts.

George was such a wonderful husband, and caring fun loving father to our two children, our son Andreas aged 16 and our daughter Sotiria aged 14. He is greatly missed by all of us, and we are deeply saddened by his loss...

Unfortunately, he was unlucky; he had severe Covid symptoms, which led to pneumonia, even though he had no other underlying problems with his health and he was very active. He loved his football, playing tennis; in general exercise was one of his daily routines.

I would love to hear about his high lights at Heath School and if anyone has any old photos too. It means a lot to me to keep all his memories, especially for our children.
