Chris John Tasoulas, 88, of Keene passed away on April 29, 2016, at his home surrounded by his loving family.
He was born in Keene on February 10, 1928, son of John Ernest Tasoulas and Mary Vlahogianni. He attended Lincoln School and graduated in 1946 from Keene High School. He started Chris J. Tasoulas Realty in 1956 and remained active in his family business throughout his life.
