Constantine George Patronis, 93, passed away on Thursday, October 19, 2023, at his home in Fayetteville, NC, surrounded by his loving family.
Constantine was preceded in death by his father, George Constantine Patronis; mother, Katherine Lefas; brother, John Patronis; and infant sister, Ellie.

Constantine was born in Marathia, Greece on May 22, 1930, and in 1947, at the age of 17, he immigrated to America. He enlisted in the US Air Force in July of 1951, driven by his deep love and gratitude for America. He would often say, "The only thing I have to give back is myself." He served as a Language Specialist and after his honorable discharge, pursued his education at Louisburg College as an undergraduate and continued at Mercer University College of Pharmacy.
Constantine was an active member of the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation of Atlanta, GA for 64 years before moving to Fayetteville, NC, and becoming a member of Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church. He was a founding father of the American Foundation for Hellenic Studies at Georgia State University, a lifelong AHEPA member, a Velouchi member, and a Grand Lodge Mason for 75 years.
In addition to his service, Constantine was a successful entrepreneur, having his own pharmacy and engaging in many other business endeavors. He was an avid reader, a lover of poetry, enjoyed woodworking, dancing, and gardening. Above all, he enjoyed creating long lasting memories with his family and friends.
Visitation will be from 10-10:30 AM on Monday, October 23, 2023, at St. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church. A Trisagion Service will follow at 10:30 AM. The funeral service will then be held at 11 AM with Father Alexander Papagikos officiating.
