    Rest in peace grandpa. It saddens me I wasn't able to get to know you better and breaks my heart that no family reached out to tell us of your passing.

    Rest in peace to my Grandpa. Even though no one reached out to us upon your passing you are missed. I wish very much I could've gotten to know you.

    "Uncle Spike' was all many of us knew him as. He was loved by all who were fortunate enough to call him that. An acclaimed cook - just don't ask him to share his recipes or he would shoo you out of the kitchen, a beloved "Uncle" - just don't gush over him or he would say, "...you should have known me when I was a 'son of gun*' (*I'm paraphrasing there!), a helpful soul - even when it seemed he had a full plate of life when a task presented itself he always said, "I can do that!". He loved deeply, and possessed a quiet strength along with a pride in all things Greek ( Thanks for helping introduce me to Greek Easter!). I will never forget his quick smile that always made me wonder what he just got away with, or what he was about to do! There will never be another like 'Uncle Spike", he will certainly be missed!

    Remembering Uncle Spike and the many stories he told about WWII. Great memories. Enjoyed times when he would come up to see his mother, Thea Kyriakou (my pappou's sister). He got his gift for telling stories from his mother.
    May God rest his soul. May his memory be eternal!

    I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Spike (this is how I always knew him). I will never forget the first time his niece Meg (one of my best friends & former roommate) invited me to dinner at his house. Uncle Spike was the best cook & especially made the best grilled steaks! Luckily, I was invited over many times & was able to experience his talented cooking. We would all sit around the dinner table and talk & had many long conversations; I still have many fond memories to this day. I am so sorry for your loss, I can’t even imagine how much you must be missing him. Larise
