Basile PapanagiotouRitual recording
Bill Papanagiotou our loving father passed away peacefully surrounded by his wife, children, sister, cousin and their families on July 28, 2021 after a year long battle with cancer. He will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him , he touched many and will be in everyones hearts for always.
Our father was a rare soul that was universally loved by all. He devoted his life to his family, including our loving mother Patricia and his three children Athina(Anthony), George(Emma) and Peter(Vanessa)and 6 grandchildren Valentino, Priscilla, Paris , Marianna, Stefano and one on the way. His beloved wife , Patricia, the love of his life endlessly cared and supported him, especially throughout his illness and was always by his side.The love he shared for our mother was the love everyone wishes to find, always devoted and in love until the end of his life.
Our fathers last wishes were that his children are always united no matter the struggles that come our way and that we always remain connected and loving to each other. We will always remember our father with loving memories and pain in our hearts that he was taken from us so soon. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel that will watch over all of us.
Our father taught us to be helpful, kind and good Samaritans .
One of the many stories that comes to mind that best describes our dad is when he swam in tumultuous waters in Greece to save a drowning woman in despair he too almost drowned that day but his mission was to save her.
My father had touched so many people he met in his lifetime that a common phrase used from family and friends was “ I would go to the moon if your dad needed me “
Our fathers passions were fixing cars with his youngest son Peter , trips to Cape cod with his children and grandchildren , Easter and Christmas celebrations at his home with his famous greek lamb and roast beef , his love for pets and helping any of his children when called.
Our family wishes to thank the exceptional patient care of Dr. Ramy Saleh and nursing team at the Cedars Cancer Center.
