From the Daily Press - 10/04/14:

                             Constantine T. Tsitsera
 
  NEW YORK, NY - Constantine T. Tsitsera passed away September 18, 2014 in New York, NY.

He was born in New Rochelle, NY, the son of Theodore and Chrysoula Tsitsera. He graduated as the valedictorian of the Newport News High School class of 1946, and served as the class president.

He earned a BS degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and following service in the military during the Korean War, earned a PhD. in electrical engineering from Columbia University.

With a brilliant mind, born of Greek immigrants, Dr. Tsitsera began his career at the Newport News Shipyard. He soon moved on to a long and distinguished career with IBM, leading many high-level projects which took him to the capitals of Europe and around the world.

He returned to Hampton Roads often to visit his sisters and attend his class reunions. He was a passionate and generous supporter of the arts, education and medical research.

He is survived by his loving wife of sixty years, Litsa, his four sisters who adored him, Olympia Plethos of Newport News, Voula Thanos of Suffolk, Athena Markos (Pete) of Newport News and Helen Adams of Virginia Beach, his brother-in-law Alec Dermatas (Titsa) of Greensboro, North Carolina, and many nieces and nephews. To his family and all those whose lives he touched, he was an inspiration and role model. He will be deeply missed and will be in our hearts and prayers forever. A private memorial service will be held at a later date.

In You Rejoice
(O Tebi Radujetsja)

Liturgy of St. Basil - Tone 6

(English adaptation by Edward Sedor)


All creation rejoices in You,
O You who are full of grace,
the host of angels and all mankind.
O holy temple and spiritual paradise,
the glory of virgins,
from whom God was made flesh and became a little Child,
and is our God before all ages.

For He made You womb His throne,
and more spacious than the heavens.
All creation rejoices in You,
O You who are full of grace,
glory to You.
