@Theodosia,

I talked to an old friend a few hours ago, he lives here in the US, he grew up in Nicosia(Strovolos area). I mentioned your post and your father's name, and he did tell me that the name sounded familiar to him. He is a bit younger then your father but he did know many people throughout the city. He said he is going to ask his brother. I'll keep you posted

One was probably living close by and putting up the other during week days.

:oops: :lol: if he was living near by it would narrow it down to a smaller area and help me with my search, thank you @getreal :D

Good looking man, I see a bit of Dirk Bogarde in him.
