Obituary for John G. Lourdis

John G. Lourdis, 89, of Carmichael, California passed away on November 16, 2018 at his home surrounded by family and friends.

John was born on May 22, 1929 in Chicago, Illinois to parents who emigrated from Greece. In the early 1930’s, a U.S. banker, fearing the depression, advised John’s father to close his accounts and return to Greece with his family, which they did. During the 1940’s, John’s parents sent their son back to Chicago to live with relatives and attend high school. After graduation, John pursued engineering studies at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago until he was drafted into the United States Air Force. John completed basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas and was eventually sent to McClellan Air Force Base in Sacramento County where he completed his duty.

Having a strong religious faith, John joined the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Sacramento, California where he served as a church cantor for many years.

Following his Air Force service, John enrolled in real estate classes and obtained his agent’s license. His first job was with Artz & Cook in Sacramento, where he worked for many years and subsequently obtained his real estate broker license. John started his own business, successfully spending decades selling and investing in real estate.

John’s fondest memories came from singing in the choir and participating in services at Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church in Elk Grove, California.

John is survived by his sister Marina Korales of Piraeus, Greece; his daughter, Leiza (David) Krimminger of Fancy Gap, Virginia; daughter, Rena Vasile and granddaughters Christina and Alexis Vasile of Folsom, California; and son Konstantinos (Alla) Lourdis of Carmichael, California.

Funeral services and meal of remembrance will be held Monday, November 26, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church, 9165 Peets Street, Elk Grove, CA 95758. Interment will follow at East Lawn Sierra Hills Memorial Park, 5757 Greenback Lane, Sacramento, CA 95841.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Saint Katherine Greek Orthodox Church.
