Obituary for Christos Dimitrios Liapopoulos

Christos Dimitrios Liapopoulos passed away on May 30, 2018. A longtime resident of Brockton, Massachusetts, he was born during the war in 1940 in Kalamata, Greece, the youngest of eight children. He grew up and was educated in Patras, Greece and immigrated to the United States in 1965 after marrying his beloved Alexandra in 1964.

He began working at the Campanelli company as a bookkeeper in 1966, attended Bentley College at night often having to translate his English lessons to Greek, subsequently graduated from Bentley in 1975, and began his career as a public accountant with the firm Tofias, Fleischman and Shapiro in Cambridge, MA. After several years of faithful service at Tofias and moonlighting in his basement to build a book of clients, he established his own accounting practice up the street from his home and subsequently acquired a building on Belmont Street in Brockton, moved his practice there where it still operates today. Through years of hard work and grit to realize the American dream, he distinguished himself in the number of Greek, immigrant clients he proudly served, along with many other business and individual clients. He is respected and loved for his honesty, integrity and loyalty and he appreciated every client with whom he had the privilege to work.

He proudly served the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church Community as a parish council member for many years, performed service work through the Masons and The Alpha Omega Council, and always gave of his time and of himself to help others. He was a proud member of Ahepa and received the Order of Ahepa Certificate of Merit in 1995. He served all the highest duties of a man with distinction and was a great advisor and role model.
