Frank J Kopellas

Born August 23, 1937 in Kashimi, a small village outside Megalopoli Greece, the son of John and Magdalene Kopellas. He came to America with his family in 1958 pursuing the American dream where he met and married Christina Georgaklis and started his own happy family.A tailor by trade, he worked in factories and retail shops until January of 1974 when he opened “Frank’s Custom Tailor” in downtown Boston and grew it into a business that still thrives today.A loving and religious man, he along with friends went door to door collecting signatures and petitioned the Greek Orthodox Metropolis to open Saint Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church in Roslindale, Ma. Here he remained an active member and these last years enjoyed watching his grandsons serve as Alter boys.
His greatest pleasure came from spending time with his entire family especially his grandsons, joking around with his customers at work, travelling to new places as well as back to his beloved Greece, working in his gardens, relaxing on the cape and always putting a smile on everyone’s face.He sadly lost his year long battle with pancreatic cancer on November 16, 2018.He is survived by his wife Christina Kopellas his children Madelan and Michael Condakes, William and Stella Kopellas, grandsons John and Foti Condakes along with his siblings George Kopellas, William and Anastasia Kopellas, Sophia and Ted Panagopoulos, and Demetra and Peter Parasirakis and numerous beloved nieces and nephews.
