We all remember Dino as part of our (1975-77) championship teams; the young man with lightning speed and a deadly right foot shot. We all remember his business acumen that revolutionized the insurance industry and made the name Dino synonymous with success. The Dino we love the most is the Cypriot young man who came to America seeking the American dream. The Dino who never forgot his roots, culture, heritage and Cyprus. Dino the philanthropist, benefactor to our association and numerous religious and educational institutions.

Dino, the great family man deeply in love with his beautiful wife, Maryanne, and his three wonderful daughters, Danielle, Alexandra and Christina.

Dino, the loving Grandfather (pappou) carrying pictures of his grandchildren; Dino, the eldest son of a brave wonderful Mother, Iphigenia, caring for all members of the family and finally, Dino, the Patriot always fighting for the cause of the Cypriot people for Freedom and Justice.

May you rest in peace Dino! We will continue to carry the torch of Freedom for Cyprus! May his memory be eternal”.
