Stefanos “Steve” Nicholas 1925-2019 of Canton, Ohio joined our Lord the evening of January first. He was born February 18, 1925 in Oinoussai, Greece. He was preceded in death by his parents Nikola and Sophia, brothers, Stefanos, Mihalis and Yianni, sister Athipi and beautiful wife of 65 years, Anastasia “Tasoula.” Stefanos left behind his son Michael (Cynthia), daughter Sophia (Michael) Kazes, his two granddaughters Marissa and Anastasia, whom he loved dearly. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Eftichia Lemos, and countless nieces, nephews and friends.

 

A Veteran of the Greek Navy, Stefanos served during WWII and eventually made his way to Cleveland, where he met his lovely wife, and began his family, which brought immense joy to his life. More recently, they moved to Canton to be closer to their daughter. He loved gardening and spending time with his friends, especially in the mall food court, chatting for hours over coffee. He had an immense pride in where he came from and his family. Stephanos was a member of Saint Paul and Saint Haralambos Greek Orthodox Churches, a member of Senior Citizens, Oinoussian Society and Agia Markella Chios Society.

 

Family and friends will be received Sunday, January 6th from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Rossi Family Funeral Home (730 30th Street NW Canton, OH 44709), with Trisagion Services to begin at 7 p.m. Funeral Services will be held on Monday, January 7th at Saint Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church at 11 a.m., with Fr. Nicholas V. Gamvas officiating. Internment will be in Saint Theodosius Cemetery (8200 Biddulph Road, Cleveland, OH). Memorial donations may be made to Saint Paul’s Greek Orthodox Church, Saint Haralambos Hellenic Dancers or Saint Jude Children’s Hospital. The family wishes to express heartfelt gratitude to Bethany Nursing Home and Crossroad Hospice for their wonderful care and support, as well as Fr. Nick for his numerous visits, prayers and comforting words.
