John Georgoulis of Torrance, California was born November 17, 1930, and went home to the Lord on March 16, 2020. John was raised in Stadion, Greece along with his two brothers, Costas and Anthony, by his hard-working parents, Efthemios and Loulia Georgoulis, who valued family above all else.

He then had his two children, Evan and Liana. The family then moved to Southern California in 1978. John owned and operated the Wooden Shoe Restaurant in Redondo Beach, California from 1978 - 2003. John is survived by his wife, Tina, son, Evan, and daughter, Liana. All services are private due to the COVID-19 virus restrictions. A Celebration of Life to be announced.

  5. Georgoulis family,
    While we are unable to be present to personally grieve with you, all the members of your beloved family remain in our thoughts and prayers, and you have our families profound and deepest sympathy along with our most heartfelt prayers for the repose of the soul of John. May the Lord our God Who in His, “inexpressible wisdom created man out of the earth, giving him form and adorning him with beauty,” assign the soul of His departed servant, John, “to the company of the righteous.” In the midst of our sorrow, we must try to remember, that though his life on this earth has ended, we know that life does not end with death but begins new with eternity, because our Lord promised us, “..
    .”I am the Resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me…shall never die.”
    (John 11: 25-26)

    May his memory be eternal!

    Entreating our Lord’s comfort and peace upon you always, we remain,
    Prayerfully yours with love in Christ,

  6. My condolences to John’s family for his loss. He was a wonderful man and a good friend and he will be missed.
