ALEXOPOULOS, Christos V. of Randolph, MA, formerly of Greece, passed away surrounded by his family on April 18th, 2018 at the age of 90. Christos was the son of the late Vasileios & Aspasia (Papageorgakis) Alexopoulos. He was born in 1928 in Syrna, Greece, where he lived until he moved to Athens, Greece to pursue an apprenticeship at his uncles’ automotive repair garage. He dealt with many hardships during his time in Athens, something that shaped him for the rest of his life. In 1955, he immigrated to Boston, MA with the desire for a better life, and caught the eye of the young Georgia Lampropoulos, the love of his life.
