Konstantinos S. Roumis

Konstantinos (“Kostas”) S. Roumis, 73, a longtime resident of Stoughton, Massachusetts, died peacefully at home on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, surrounded by his loving family. Kostas was married to his devoted wife of 42 years, Vula (Kalambokis) Roumis. Kostas was born in Thessaloniki, Greece to the late Solon and Marika (Sklida) Roumis. He was raised by Solon and Danai (Papadopoulou) Roumis, who loved him like her own. Kostas was deeply proud of his Pontian Greek heritage, which shaped him in ways visible and invisible.

Konstantinos had a degree in law from the University of Athens in Greece and a degree in finance from Northeastern University in Boston. He was a financial administrator for many years before retiring in 2015. He was an incredibly hard worker who put his family’s needs above all else. He made innumerable sacrifices to ensure that his loved ones were always taken care of and to enable his children to take advantage of all possible opportunities and experiences.

Kostas cared about helping others and he embodied real philanthropy. No matter his own circumstances, he supported people and causes that were close to his heart and he did so with joy and humility.

Kostas loved many things. He had an intense appreciation for nature and enjoyed gardening in his backyard with his wife. He made sure the birdfeeder was full throughout the year. He had a voracious appetite for historical nonfiction and would excitedly share summaries with anyone who had a few hours to spare. He had a passion for soccer which he also instilled in his children. He loved to watch tennis and, most recently, to play pickleball. Few things could move him and stir his soul like music, of which he enjoyed all kinds, but especially that of his native Greece. He also loved the poetry of Odysseas Elytis. Kostas was intelligent, observant, analytical, and endlessly curious, with a rare drive and patience to truly understand things.

He remained connected to his family and friends in Greece and loved to visit them when he was able. He was both firmly rooted in his New England home and nostalgic for his Mediterranean homeland. He instilled a love of its history, language, cuisine, and culture in his children.

Kostas had so much still to give, and his family will carry him in their hearts forever. In addition to his wife, Konstantinos is survived by his much-beloved children, Danae K. Roumis and Dr. Demetris K. Roumis and his wife, Marlene Flores.

The Funeral Service will be held at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral of New England, 514 Parker Street, Boston on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at 11 AM, with Visitation from 10-11 AM. Immediately following, the Interment will take place at The Gardens at Gethsemane, 670 Baker St, West Roxbury, MA.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations in memory of Konstantinos may be made to the Massachusetts Audubon Society or Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), to support causes that were close to his heart.
