Yes he is, a lot of my family said he was very good looking and he was always dressed very smart suit and tie. :)

The coca-cola factory was (may still be, is it still there???) in the neighbourhood called Strovollos, which is a couple of miles to east of Aglangia.


Neighborhood called Strovolos? Strovolos is the 2nd largest municipality in Cyprus after Lemesos!!

And thats Pepsi not Coca Cola, Coca Cola is in Ayios Dhometios.

Hi Theodosia, both Coca Cola and Pepsi are indeed in Nicosia but in different areas.

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

hi cowboy, have you heard any news yet from your friend? :)
