"I will never forget
I can still see your smile
"A piece about Akis Kollaros from our website.
"I only ever met Akis in person once but he put a lot of work my way and we spoke on the phone, by text and online all the time. I was stunned by the news so decided to try and do something positive by setting up the fund to maybe raise a little money to help his family get him home. The original amount was set at £500 and I wasn't sure we would reach that but I didn't bank on the fact Akis spent his whole life paying it forward helping people at every chance he got. The original target was passed within hours so we upped it to £1000. That was exceeded by the next morning so again we doubled it to £2000. Eventually it had to be raised to £5000 but it eventually reached over £8000 which was enough to pay for the repatriation, funeral, headstone and all the expenses. That in itself speaks volumes about the sort of guy Akis was, that people thought so highly of him they would willingly dip into their pockets to help him when he needed it. The tribute day at OQH wasn't a sad affair at all but a fitting celebration of a life well lived cut tragically short but which touched so many lives in a positive way in that short time. A huge loss for all who knew him and the London music scene but in the words of the late Terry Pratchett "no-one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away..." and with Akis that is a very long time away. Bye mate, you were a fast-burning star that lit up a lot of lives in a short time and that lives on in every life you touched."
"With Akis I shared some of the most passionate moments of my life in London.... Thank you so much to his love for music,cycling and..... Whisky!
I lost a beautiful friend and passionate colleague....
"Aki i will love you forever and you are always in my heart. Thank you for being such a lovely warm loving person and friend will never forget you!!"
"I remember Akis from our days in the Musicology Dept. in Athens, Greece, back in the late 90's. Though I didn't knew him very well, I was shocked reading about his death.
May he rest in peace... and his last ride guide him to Heaven..."
"i didn't know Aki very well,but through his close friends and family even i can see he will be missed immensely.His memory has brought people together and that alone is a gr8 honour.
May he rest in peace and his loved ones find the strength to continue this amazing effort of keeping him memory alive."
Have a suggestion for us?
