It is with a sense of profound loss that we mark the passing of the Protopresbyter George Dimopoulos.
Fr. George was a Distinguished Professor Emeritus in New Testament, as well as instructor in Dogmatic Theology and New Testament Greek during his time at St. Tikhon’s Seminary from the years 1965-1998. He was beloved by students, faculty, and anyone who had the good fortune to spend time in his presence.
He was a dedicated churchman, loving husband and father, and he will be sorely missed.
In 2007 Fr. George was awarded the degree Doctor of Divinity honoris causa by His Grace, Bishop Tikhon on behalf of the Board of Trustees, faculty, and administration of St. Tikhon’s Seminary on the 50th Anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood. An article highlighting this celebration as well as a short biographical outline was also included in the 2007 Tikhonaire and can be viewed by following the link provided here.
May God be with his loving family during this time and may his memory be eternal.
