Sotiris Stavros Bassakaropoulos 6 August 1946 – 27 December 2009

My dad was always the life and soul of the party a real rebel. He was born in Athens in 1946.
For anyone who met my dad would say his character was larger than life. He had a Greek accent and a really good sense of humour and when he decided he was right. There was no point in trying to argue with him it was a losing battle. The best words to descibe him would be and he used these words himself was he didn’t give a shit about what anyone said.. The police the government traffic wardens you name it, when they came into contact with my dad they had a shock.. He used to constantly be battling with business partners the government he even tried to take Ledu to court.

He loved listening to music a lot of the music he liked I enjoyed too. Some of the singers he liked included his favourite Van Morrison,Gary Moore, Santana,Fleetwood Mac,Ry Cooder,Joe Cocker,Elton John,Eric Clapton,George Michael,He also liked Rydian Roberts,Leona Lewis and Watched the X Factor as well.
