Obituary

George E.Sophos, Jr., 88, of Nashua, died Sunday, April 4, 2021 at the Hanover Hill Health Care Center in Manchester. He was born on July 15, 1932, in Lowell, MA, the son of George E. Sophos and Marion (Linscott) Pappas. He was the loving husband of the late Dolores (Gendreau) for 50 years.

Mr. Sophos lived in Nashua for most of his life. He was a devout catholic and was a member of several churches over the years, with the most recent being St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church. He was a veteran of the United States Army and served in the Korean war. He worked for many years at the Improved Machinery Company and later he worked for the City of Nashua in the school system. After his retirement he volunteered at the Mt. Carmel Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

One of his greatest joys in life was ballroom dancing with his wife. He especially enjoyed listening to big band music, with one of his favorite bands being the Glenn Miller Orchestra. He had a great interest in learning about ancient history, with Egypt being one of his favorite subjects. He also enjoyed watching classic Hollywood movies such as the ones starring Humphrey Bogart and old westerns starring John Wayne, among others.

He was predeceased by his brother, Nathan, his sister, Marion Antonowich and his son, Mark.

He is survived by three sons and a daughter-in-law, David and Marquetta (Bell) Sophos of Merrimack, Steven Sophos of Hudson and Eric Sophos of Nashua, and three daughters and sons-in-law, Karen and John MacCarty of Billerica, MA., Lynn and Paul Mulhern of Dracut, MA. and Gail and Paul Richard of Shelton, CT., many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, and three sisters-in-law, Masako Gendreau, Eileen Gendreau and Teresa Sophos.

This was our first picture together. I have held onto it ever since. I still remember the day you came to my graduation and gifted me a silver dollar, I had never owned one before and I still have it. Thinking of you all the way from Texas. Sending love to the family. Thank you for giving me my dad, David. -Your granddaughter, Rebekah Davis (Sophos)
