Stavros Chelioudakis passed away peacefully at his home in New Milford CT on July 30, 2019 while surrounded by his loving family. Stavros was born on Oct 28, 1947 in Chania, Crete, Greece to the late Despina and Spiros Chelioudakis.
Stavros was a Greek Veteran and served in Greece during peacetime. He worked as a cook for many restaurants throughout his career.
Stavros was a patriotic man; he loved his family, his island, history, his dog and his garden. He could often be found in his garden tending to his fruit trees, wearing his trusty helmet to protect his head from dropping apples. He loved antiquing. He collected old coins, and war memorabilia. He was a unique man who had his own way of doing things, and he will be dearly missed.
Stavros is survived by his beloved wife Susan Streaman Chelioudakis of 42 years. They shared three children together, Despina, Kostas and Nikos Chelioudakis. Two children from a previous marriage in Greece; Spiros Chelioudakis and Aggeliki Morou. As well as four beloved grandsons, three granddaughters, five sisters, and four brothers.
