Statement from Chairman John Burton on the passing of George Tsakopoulos

"George Tsakopoulos was a classic American success story.

"George Tsakopoulos arrived in the Sacramento area from Greece in the 1950s – and like so many immigrants – he worked seven days a week to build a better life for his family and his community.

"A real estate developer for decades, Tsakopoulos literally helped shape the Sacramento skyline. His most recent project with his son, Angelo G. Tsakopoulos, was the tower at 500 Capitol Mall that opened last month.

"With George Tsakopoulos’ passing, we have lost one of the founders of modern Sacramento.

"Our condolences and prayers go out to his wife Drosoula, his two children, his siblings and the whole Tsakopoulos family.

"George Tsakopoulos will be truly missed."
