This photo depicts George Kremidas at age 90. He is sitting on a chair with cane in hand and his legs and arms crossed. The photo appears to have been taken on a covered deck or porch. Beyond the deck tree covered hill are visible for a long way.
A note from the donors (George's grandchildren, Angleliki's son and daughter in law) tells us that this is a professionally reproduced photograph not the original.
George Kremidas and his wife Despina lived in the Greek village of Dessila, Greece. Dessila is a tiny village in the area of Messenia on the Peloponnese. Their daughter Angeliki, the third of five children, was the only member of the immediate family to emmigrate to America. While living in New England, she married Nicholas Apostolos and subsequently gave birth to two sons: George and James. The family moved to Michigan and both sons served in the military during World War II. Afterwards both sons earned degrees from Worsham College of Mortuary Scieince in Chicago and opened a mortuary in Muskegon, Michigan together. James married Geraldine Pavlis. In 1960 the two left to visit his family in Greece, however, on the day of their departure George Kremidas (James' grandfather) passed away at the age of 98. The personal artifacts included in this accession were given to the Apostles during this trip.
