George Konomos, age 89, of Knoxville, Tennessee, formerly of Dayton, Ohio passed away peacefully early Thursday morning, November 23, 2017 at his home surrounded by family.

George Konomos is a true American success story. George was born in Kollines, Greece located near Tripolis in the beautiful Pelopennese region of Greece. As a youngster, George survived Nazi occupied Greece during WWII. After proudly serving for 2 years in the Greek military, he set off for the USA with a hopeful adventurous spirit and only $20 in his pocket and thus began his higher education studies at Auburn University where he earned his B.S. degree in Engineering and Computer Science and subsequently he earned a masters degree in Engineering at The Ohio State University. After graduation, George worked for the Department of Defense planning and designing the laser and electronic systems for various Air Force projects including the F-15 and F-16 airplanes at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. His hobbies included photography, computers, traveling, and spoiling his grandchildren with their most treasured dreams.
