Constantine (Dino) Houpis – Memory Eternal
With sadness but with joy in the Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we have to announce that Constantine Houpis (we knew him as Dino) passed away on April 9. He daughter reports that he passed peacefully in his sleep.
Dino loved St. Peter’s. Before his health took a turn for the worse and he had to move back to Ohio, Dino would come almost every Sunday when we were first at the hotel and later in our present location. His daughter said the Sunday worship and fellowship was one of the highlights of his week. He spoke of St. Peter’s often and had a deep fondness for all the members.
His funeral was private because of the coronavirus lock down but his family plans to hold the makaria (funeral dinner) in Ohio on his one year memorial. We at St. Peter’s will offer Trisagion Prayers this Sunday for Dino and offer Memorial Prayers on the one year anniversary on April 11, 2021.
We will also add Dino’s name to our list of founders and friends of St. Peter’s.
A short obituary can found on the Dayton Funerals website.
May his memory be eternal.
