Vassilios Nicholas Troupos

March 24, 1939 — May 29, 2024

Warner Robins

Vassilios Nicholas Troupos, a dedicated family man and esteemed diplomat, passed away peacefully on the morning of Wednesday, May 29, 2024, at the age of 85.

Born on March 24, 1939, in Romania, Vassilio relocated with his family to Greece after fleeing the constraints of communist rule at the young age of 11. His family eventually settled in New Zealand, where he pursued his education at Victoria University of Wellington.

After earning his bachelor's degree, he began a career with the government of New Zealand. Which led him to venture to Virginia in 1967. For many years, he served as a Chief Procurement Officer for the Embassy of New Zealand in Washington D.C.

Throughout his life, Vassilios remained deeply rooted in his faith and community. While living in Arlington and Fredericksburg, Virginia, Vassilios was longtime member of the Nativity of the Theotokos Greek Orthodox Church. Upon relocating to Warner Robins a year ago, he embraced his new home and became a member of the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Macon.

Vassilios was known for his quiet strength and unwavering commitment to excellence. A diligent worker who strove for perfection in all endeavors, he approached challenges with resilience and determination. Yet, amidst his professional achievements, Vassilios was an avid tennis player. His greatest source of joy and fulfillment was found in his cherished family. His bond with his wife was unbreakable, and his love for his family knew no bounds.

Vassilios Nicholas Troupos leaves behind a legacy of integrity, compassion, and dedication. He will be dearly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Vassilios was preceded in death by his parents, Gerasinos and Heleni Troupos.

His memory will forever be treasured by his wife, Helen Belissariou Troupos of Warner Robins; stepdaughter, Stephanie Trebes; and sister, Fotini Troupos.
