John N. Krikelis '97

Delta Upsilon brother John N. Krikelis '97 died Sept. 3 when his motorcycle crashed into a telephone pole in Raynham, a town near Plymouth. He was not wearing a helmet.

"John was a very free-willed person," said Alexander F. Hoermann '97, a close friend of Krikelis. "He did whatever he wanted. He had a very full life and he loved to be alive."

Krikelis' parents, Nich-olas and Eleftheria Krikelis of Rafina, Greece, have established a scholarship fund in his memory. The $5,000 scholarship will go to a mechanical engineering major of Greek origin, or in the absence of such a student, to an outstanding mechanical engineering major from DU.
