Andreas (Andy) John Theodorou
Andreas (Andy) John Theodorou, 85, of Hamilton Sq., NJ, passed away on March 25th surrounded by his loving family.
He is survived by his devoted wife of 58 years, Zenovia; his two daughters, Mary (Maria) and Joanne; his son-in-law, Spiro Hadjiyerou; two grandchildren, George Andreas and Zena Maria; and many nieces and nephews from the United States and Greece.
Andreas was born in Pireaus, Greece, the oldest son of the late Maria and John Theodorou and sibling of the late Makis and Vasiliki. He immigrated to the United States in 1956 after serving in the Merchant Marines under the auspices of both the Greek and U.S. Coast Guards, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1960. Andreas was very proud of both his Greek heritage and his American nationality.
He was a mechanical engineer, employed by the Homasote Co. for over 33 years. Andreas was an extremely social and gregarious man who enjoyed the company of his many friends whom he entertained with his humorous antidotes.
He will be greatly missed.
