One from the most famous modern Greek authors, Babis Tsikliropoulos passed away yesterday morning at the NIMITZ hospital. He was 72-years old. In his final last days, he was very depressed from the loss of his favorite sister.
Babis Tsikliropoulos was born in 1939 in Purgos, Ilias. He started writing from a very early age. He was very sensitive and during his whole life he was looking for the meaning of it in beauties that other people couldn’t see.
He wrote scripts for the TV and the cinema, as well as fictions and novels. He also wrote lyrics and his ideas were sang. Some of his most famous works are “Min ksechasto ke den guriso”, “I Odyssia toy Mitsou”, “Stin akri tis polis”, “Ta efta thaumata tou ipokosmou”, “Perimenontas tin vrochi” and “O Varonos”.
His friends will say the last goodbye to him today at 4 p.m. at Saint Nicolas’ cemetery , at his special homeland.
