The Coutlakis family is the kind of family you'd want as neighbors. Loving, involved parents and three polite, sweet sons. For decades, this family has been a blessing to the City of Richmond.
Gina Coutlakis has always been a person that the community could count on -- serving tirelessly as a Cub Scout den mother, a PTA board member at William Fox Elementary School and a lifeline for countless friends and neighbors. By day, she works for Positive Vibe Foundation, a nonprofit that makes a meaningful difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
Now this family needs your help.
On July 6, James Coutlakis -- Gina's husband and father to Manny (16), Harrison (12) and Kostas (5) -- was struck and killed by a train during his morning walk. James was a family man with strong Greek values. He also was civic-minded, serving as president of the Boulevard Association. His letters to the editor of the Richmond Times-Dispatch earned him recognition as "Correspondent of the Day" on numerous occasions.
Short- and long-term needs
James was in the prime of life and a vital, contributing member to their family. While James had a modest amount of life insurance, the Coutlakis family has both immediate and long-term financial needs, ranging from funeral costs to educational expenses for the boys.
Friends of the Coutlakis family have created this online fund to help a family that has always been quick to help others. Please give generously to help a wonderful woman and her beautiful boys.
