FALLS CHURCH, Va. (FOX 5 DC) - A Virginia brother and sister are asking the public for help, days after their 93-year-old father was hit and killed by a driver who didn’t stop.
The hit-and-run occurred Friday night on Arlington Boulevard in Falls Church.
Police say a dark colored pick-up truck struck Pericles Apostolou as he crossed the roadway near Summerfield Road.
The family says their father was walking back from a bus stop after a trip to the grocery store when he was struck – a trip he’d made many times before.
Home movies tell the story of a man who came to America from Greece in December 1955, and found a way to provide for his family without even knowing the language.
“I see a life well lived but not finished, not done anytime soon,” Sofia Kehayias said, reflecting on her father.
“Shock is an understatement because. He was such a vibrant man,” said Chris Apostolou, his son.
“We just put him to rest, and we have to go on with our lives somehow,” Kehayias said.
