Memory Eternal! + William George Kafoure

Fr. Nabil Hanna writes:

William George Kafoure was a faithful member of St. George Church [in Indianapolis, IN]. Over the years Bill served on the Parish Council, the Building Committee, and he was our Church Historian. Bill was a founding member of the SOYO youth movement and was President of Midwest SOYO from 1955-56. He was also a member of the Archdiocese Order of St. Ignatius of Antioch.

Bill was the inspiration behind our 85th Anniversary musical, entitled "He's been there the whole time!," which was dedicated to his memory this past weekend.

Bill is survived by his children, William Paul (Coleen) Kafoure, Steven George (Dory) Kafoure, and Leslie Ann (Thomas) Kafoure Baas, grandchildren, Kelly C. Baas, William S. Kafoure, Lynne Herendeen, and Brett Herendeen and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in departure from this life by his wife, Frances H. Risk Kafoure, siblings Richard, Michael and Isabel Kafoure.

Friends may call from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, at Harry W. Moore Funeral Care (82nd & Allisonville), with a Trisagion service at 7:30 p.m.

The funeral service will be held Thursday, April 26, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. at St. George Orthodox Church, with entombment to follow at Washington Park East.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. George Orthodox Church:

Yours in the Risen Christ,
