George Michael Vrotsos passed away on July 26, 2020, at home, among family. Born in 1933 to Michael and Clara Vrotsos of Belmont, George was the brother of the late Bernard Vrotsos. Beloved and dedicated husband of Susan Packer Vrotsos, George relished time with family: his daughter Holly and her partner Dean Wickline, daughter Karen, son-in-law David Rogers, and grandson George Vrotsos-Rogers, and son Michael, daughter-in-law Trish Williams, and grandsons Dylan and Luke Vrotsos. Valiant and fun-loving, George won lifelong friends on the playing fields of Belmont Hill School. Always game for adventure, he spent the summer before college hitchhiking and jumping freight trains across the U.S. As a Harvard undergrad (class of ’56) he majored in economics and jazz clubs, sporting a raccoon coat and cutting a rug. In foul or fair weather, he was a passionate fisherman, whether lobstering in Manchester or reeling in blues and mackerel off the coast of Maine. He lived for family, friendships, and adventure. He will be remembered in the Boston area as co-owner of Apollo Cake Specialties, where he kept long hours, lighting the cake ovens well before dawn. In Winchester, he was known as a trusted realtor at Coldwell Banker and a vibrant member of the Rotary Club and Jumelage. He loved travel, and his charm, subtle wit, and embracing smile made him welcome everywhere. A man of lionhearted loyalty, he was a great raconteur, a loving family man, and a generous host. In his memory, and lieu of flowers " the Belmont Hill School scholarship fund" would be appreciated. In light of the current precautions with the Coronavirus, Funeral Services and Interment were private. A Celebration of his life will be held at a later date. For online condolences please visit

George was the kind of roommate every college student should have. Smart. Funny. Generous. We had wonderful times together. Farewell old friend. Our hearts go out to Susie, the children and the rest of George’s family.

George was one of the best friends I ever had. He and Susie were the nicest couple I ever met with three wonderful children who knew that they came first. His sense of humor was imaginative and ubiquitous. He and I had an annual bet on the Harvard-Dartmouth football game which was more fun to lose than win. A dollar was on the line and when I won I lost. He paid me with a jar of molasses containing 100 pennies ( I never did count them) or a laminated dollar bill or a bill torn in half and reassembled upside down. I tried in vain to match his creativity when he won. George was extremely gregarious, generous and hard working. We shared an interest in finding a bottle of wine under ten dollars which was outstanding. Susie and he were wonderful hosts and it was always special to be invited to their home. My Sue and I and daughters Jennifer and Christine shared many Christmases with them.

George was truly one of a kind and I miss him already though I haven"t seen him in a long time. I am flooded with great memories,

George Vrotsos was an absolute delight!! As his wife, Susie, was a college classmate of mine, we have known them for many years. We have experienced his generous hospitality many times and I can still hear his vibrant, come-from-the-boots laugh!! I am so glad that we knew him and send special love to his family, who have lost a great man! Leslie Holmes

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember him fondly from the CAA events you hosted. If there is anything I can do let me know.

So very sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with the family. George was my friend and colleague at Coldwell Banker for 20 years and we spent many hours viewing homes, laughing, story telling. I have missed him since he stopped being involved in the business and I will miss him always. One of the kindest, enjoyable and professional people I have known. A true gentleman!
