“He won’t come back this time”
In an interview with “Bild am Sonntag” (“BamS”), Lucas Cordalis (52) looked back on a year without his father Costa Cordalis, who lived on July 2, 2019 at the age of 75 in the family of his family in Mallorca, his adopted home had died of organ failure.
He misses him incredibly, says Cordalis. “But after his death I didn’t have time to sink into a hole of deep grief or depression, because I had to be back at the start for my family,” explains the musician. His mother Ingrid (76) in particular needs his support. “She is now sitting all alone in the big house on Mallorca. We bought her a dog to distract her and go out, ”Cordalis says. Shortly after the death of his father, the widow even felt “quite well” because she was used to the fact that his father often toured for a long time. “But at some point she realized that he wasn’t going to come back this time. It was bad for her. ”
The urn of the late pop singer is in his home in Mallorcan Santa Ponsa. Lucas Cordalis explains that he was a family man and always wanted to gather his loved ones around him. “So he can always be there.” The family will spend the first anniversary of the Schlager icon’s death on Mallorca, says Lucas Cordalis. “I think we will go to my mother’s house, light dad’s candle in the living room, listen to music and remember the wonderful moments with him.”
According to “BamS”, the 52-year-old, together with his wife Daniela Katzenberger (33) and daughter Sophia (4), sorted out his father’s last stored belongings from Germany last week in order to have them brought to Mallorca. Among the memorabilia from the former house in the Black Forest were, among other things, gold records and first pressings of the greatest songs by Costa Cordalis.
