OBITUARY:

George G. Mousterakis, a longtime resident of Woburn, passed away Thursday, May 29th at the Courtyard Nursing Center in Medford. The beloved husband of the late Irene (Loisou) Mousterakis, he was seventy-six years of age. Born in Crete, Greece, George was the son of the late George and Sylvia (Galanakis) Mousterakis. He was raised in Crete and following high school he joined the Greek Royal Navy. Stationed on a submarine, he rose to the rank of Chief Petty Officer

At the age of thirty he came to the United States while he was still serving in the Greek Navy. I In 1962 he married his wife, Irene, to whom he was devoted for thirty-two years. They first made their home in Watertown and after being blessed with a daughter and a son, they settled on the West Side of Woburn, which remained their home.

Mr. Mousterakis was a licensed electrician and worked at Newton Electric for a number of years before securing a position with Alpha Industries in Woburn, where he remained until his retirement during the eighties.

He had a great love for his family, enjoying their academic successes, sporting events and personal achievements. He was a man who so enjoyed the sea, feeling at home on a boat with a fishing pole in hand, he spent many hours by himself or with family and friends. He boated out of Boston Harbor, making spectacular catches of fish throughout the day, returning home at days end to share his bounty. Mr. Mousterakis also maintained a vegetable garden in his back yard that was spectacularly full of tomatoes, beans, squash, all of which he shared with his friends. A fantastic cook, Mr. Mousterakis would take the grape leaves from his very fine vines and make stuffed grape leaves that they all so enjoyed. His Greek culture and heritage, of which he was most proud were rooted deeply in Mr. Mosterakis. His hard work ethic, his ability to be a good and loving provider for his family as well as a devoted and cherished friend, his cooking expertise, and his love of the sea, are all part of the legacy that Mr. Mousterakis has so beautifully left to his family and friends.

  1. Steven,

    I am so sorry at the loss of your father. You were a great son to him, and I know that your constant attention and loving gestures toward him, especially during the past several years, must have meant the world to him.

    I’m sure your Dad knows all you have done for him and I an certain that he was terribly proud that he raised such a kind and devoted child.
