George Alfeas, 79, born in Riglia, Greece and longtime resident of Cicero, passed away October 10, 2020.  Beloved son of the late Christos and Panagiota, nee Liarakos; loving brother of Reveka (the late Spyros) Basoukeas and Pete (the late Dolly) Alfeas; cherished grandpa aka "Papa George" of Peter E.

George served in the US Army and he had a great love for horse racing. He enjoyed learning about all aspects of the world through travel and always was up to date on news and politics. He loved sharing stories of Greek Mythology with his grandchildren. He had a personality that could make anyone feel welcome. He loved to make others laugh and always had a joke prepared for any occasion. He was sharp and always up for a game of chess or sequence. He showed unconditional love to everyone he knew and left wonderful memories for all those who got a chance to know him. He will be remembered always for his kind heart, contagious laughter and storytelling ability. But mostly for being a wonderful grandpa aka " Papa George".
