In Memory of Lou Kokotis

South Melbourne FC is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mr Lou Kokotis.

Kokotis was President of Yarra Park FC, one of the three clubs that merged in 1959 to create South Melbourne Hellas. As well as being a former player at Yarra Park, Lou was one of the three club presidents that signed the agreement that established our Club.

Born in 1932 in Valimitika, Aigion Greece, Kokotis migrated to Australia and became a successful businessman in the entertainment and agricultural industries.

Mr Kokotis is uncle to former General Manager and recently appointed Football Manager (Senior Men) Peter Kokotis and cousin to fellow Yarra Park players & brothers Basil (father of Peter) & Perry Kokotis.

South Melbourne FC wishes to extend its deepest condolences to the Kokotis family.
