RIP Apostolis ‘Akis’ Koustas

Plastic glasses

Just heard that one of my friends from university, Apostolis Koustas (better known as Akis) was shot dead in Greece, while on military service. He was a fun guy and leaves behind a lot of friends here, especially amongst the bar staff of the union. He was only 23 years old will be missed by many of us.

RIP, Akis.


  1. R.i.p my friend.. 🙁
    a video in Apostolis memory

  2. I’m just a friend of his mother! Unfortunately I had no luck of knowing the person. I’ve just come accross him in Ai Yiannis sq. by his house in Athens Greece. I didn’t know that he was Mona’s son, but my eyes stuck on him. I said to myself “WHAT A GENTLE YOUNG MAN?” I was shocked when I learn his death. This is to all his friends, with sympathy because good friends are hard to find. ERIKA

  3. I lived with Akis for a year and i have such memories of the fun we had, i still can not believe you have gone. Rest easy my friend and thankyou for all the joy you have gave me. Rest in Peace Brother
