George Tahopoulos passed away peacefully at home on December 16, 2020, surrounded by his family. He was 86 years old.
Born in Eratyra Kozanis, Greece, George came to America on a steamship in April 1955 to pursue the American dream. He worked his way through many restaurants/food establishments. In 1962, his hard work and determination paid off when he became a partner in his own restaurant at the Valley Forge Diner. In 1964, he took ownership of Boston Style Pizza in Wynnewood. George worked tirelessly in all his endeavors while providing for his family, and at the end of 1980, he finally retired.
Following in his footsteps, his two sons opened their own pizza restaurant, Verona Pizza, where George would always be found offering guidance and a helping hand. George spent his remaining years traveling with his wife and loving his grandchildren.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Tassia. Loving sons Pete (Lisa) and Thom (and friend Mia). Devoted grandchildren George, Georgio, Athan, Demetrios, Adriana, and Joseph.
