In their own words

Recently widowed.

Retired sales acct. exec., for 30 years with one multi billion chemical co., professional musician both Greek and American. Had 7 piece Top 40’s band for 30 years and formed Greek band in 1982 to play Greek festivals. Have played over 100 with more coming when things settle down. Navy Band 4 years in the mid 60’s Two years in the Far East and 2 years in San Francisco. Selected to be in the Navy Honor Flag Detail at JFK’s funeral November 1963. Fifty of us were positioned inside the White House driveway and within 4 ft. in front of me passed all the world leaders, kings, queens and the Kennedy family with Caroline and John John holding on to Jackie. We have Two sons - a professor of Communications. The other son a successful businessman. My parents were both Greek as were my grandparents so I speak fluent Greek and learning to read and write again after so many years of not doing so. My friends say I’m kind, compassionate easy going, honest and trustworthy. My sons say, “dad, you’re the only person we know that meets someone new, and within 3-5 minutes know their whole life story !” In sales for 30+years it’s important to actively listen to other people and some of this I get from my mother and my beautiful precious wife. May their memory be forever eternal. I think about yiayia, pappou, mom, dad and my precious beautiful wife daily. Life is like a train and we never know when it’s our turn to get off. We’re just visitors on this planet.

Insights
Describe the perfect evening.
Dinner over looking the water anywhere in Greece , or somewhere in Florida when it’s snowing up north!
Describe your perfect weekend.
Meeting someone new, learning about their background.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
It’s highly possible.
How many kids would you like to have?
My wife (deceased) and I have 2 beautiful and very successful sons in their careers. I thank GOD for arranging this.
What is the purpose of marriage?
God put my beautiful precious Greek wife (deceased) and I together 52 years ago. We were best friends and raised 2 handsome successful sons with a great work ethic and extremely proud of their Greek heritage.
What do your friends like about you most?
They say I’m kind, compassionate, easy going, laid back, very talented musician on sax, clarinet, flute both in Greek and American music.. Many are surprised I was able to retire at age 57 from a 30+ years in sales all with one great company and continue to play musiic on a professional level - both Greek and American.
What do your friends tease you about the most?
Not too much...I’m quick with a comeback !
What gets on your nerves?
Cruelty to animals, anti- American politicians, people who won’t listen and are constantly interrupting me. (or anybody)
What's the best age to get married?
Depends on the maturity level of the two people. I was 27 my wife was 23 and we were happily married for 52+ years when Alzheimer’s a very insidious disease with no bias and no cure took her away from me. She’s soaring with the Angels and teaching them to Greek dance . Syrto, Kalamatiano, Zembekiko, Hasapiko, Makithoniko !
What turns you off?
People only interested in themselves, constantly interrupting , dominating a conversation, poor oral hygiene, body odors, smokers, alcoholics , drug addicts, gambling addictions, cruelty to animals ( because this tells me a lot about you )
What turns you on?
Riding the train called LIFE and enjoying the view because we don’t know when it’s our turn to get off permanently.
