Obituary

Panagiotis Louis “Pete” Stathakos passed away May 12, 2019, at the age of 67.  Born June 26, 1951, to Evriklia and Louis Stathakos in Galveston, Texas, he graduated from Ball High School, and briefly attended Galveston College.  He worked several small jobs before joining UTMB in the Computer Programming department where he remained for 20 years before taking early retirement.

Pete was a fixer upper who took pride in renovating homes for rentals.  He enjoyed building and wood working.  He loved making music and playing the guitar. His life hobbies included bowling, biking, and listening to rock, classical, jazz and blues bands.

He attended the Greek Orthodox Church where he enjoyed participating in various religious and cultural activities along with the parishioners, his friends, from the church. He loved the yearly festivals and often volunteered for them.

“Taki” was a fun loving, free spirit, who loved life and laughter.  He loved his family and friends, was a very dedicated and devoted son to his mother who he took care of, just as she took care of him, for most of his life. He always cherished the relationship he had with his wife. He was very much a loving and doting father to his daughter. He passed too early and will be greatly missed.

He is preceded in death by his parents Evriklia and Louis and his son Nicholas Stathakos. We who have survived him include his daughter and son-in-law Michaelina and John Neiser and their two boys Aeson and Evrik; his sister and her husband, Cathy and Emanuel Stamatakis, and their 3 children; Barbara Stathakos and family; and numerous and beloved nieces and nephews and cousins from both the Sarantakos and Stathakos families.

The family greatly appreciates the prayers, condolences, donations and gifts provided by loved ones. We would like to thank the wonderful doctors and staff at UTMB Galveston, North Transitional Care in Tomball and Heart to Heart Hospice.

Services will be held Saturday, May 18, 2019, in Galveston, Texas. Visitation is at Assumption of the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church at 11:00 followed by funeral services at 12:00, family time and life celebrations to follow.

I knew Pete love to fix up houses so when I wanted to build a new garage I ask Pete to help me. He was more than willing. We built a two stall garage from the ground up. There wasn't any thing he would not help me with. I will miss my friend dearly. Rest in Peace "Petakos" Love you man.

WE WATCHED OUR BELOVED NEPHEW FROM CHILDHOOD TO MANHOOD. A REVERENT ALTAR BOY IN OUR CHURCH, ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP AT OUR FESTIVALS. WE WITNESSED THE LOVE AND CARE THAT HE GAVE TO HIS MOTHER AND THE LOVE AND RESPECT HE SHOWED TOWARDS US. HIS SPIRIT FOR LAUGHTER AND JOY, FRIENDLINESS TO SO MANY AND A BLYTHE SPIRIT FOR LIFE.

Pete (Panagiotis) Stathakos was my cousin and I spent many summers with the Stathakos family in Galveston. We called him Taki then as we spoke Greek at home. I remember we all walked to Church on Sunday mornings. We all played and argued as children and made a lot of memories. He had a lovely daughter, and my prayers are with Michaelina and her family. Pete was a good son and good man. I remember him helping his mother by working on their house remodeling and repairing it. My prayers are also with Cathy, his sister and her family in this time of loss. In our sorrow at his loss, we know we have the hope of the Resurrection and the love of Christ our Savior. "O God of spirits, and of all flesh, who has trampled down death, crushed the power of the devil, and granted life to your world, do thou yourself, O Lord, give rest to the soul of your servant, Panagiotis, who has fallen asleep, in a place of light, a place of green pasture, a place of repose, where there is no grief, sorrow or mourning. Forgive every sin which he has committed in word or deed or thought, for Thou art a good God who loves mankind. For there is no one who lives and does not sin; only Thou art without sin; Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness and Thy word is truth. "With the Saints give rest, O Christ, to the soul of Your servant, Panagiotis, where there is no pain, nor sorrow, nor suffering, but life everlasting.”
