Gerry Papachristou, husband of Pat Papachristou (Economics) and father of Mark Papachristou (’97, MBA ’99) and Angela Papachristou (’07), had a massive stroke Saturday morning, May 11. According to the doctors, it happened very quickly, so he did not suffer. He died peacefully surrounded by family singing and praying early Sunday, May 12.
Two memorial services have been scheduled and the family hopes that members of the CBU Community will be able to come to one of them.
On Wednesday, May 15, there will be a memorial service at the Church of the Holy Apostles at 2:00 p.m., followed by a reception. The church is located in Collierville at 1380 Wolf River Blvd.(past its intersection with Houston Levee, St George’s High School).
On Thursday, May 16, there will be a Memorial mass at St. Patrick Church (4th and Linden) at 5:15 p.m., preceded by the Rosary at 4:45. There will be a reception in the Parish Life Center afterwards.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to St. Patrick Food Ministry, Holy Apostles Outreach Committee, or the charity of your choice. Condolences may be sent in care of Campus Box 70.
