Having survived World War II, he was a soldier in the Greek Civil War from 1946-1949. Panos was then a Merchant Marine until 1962, where he also served as a member of the Allied Forces during the Korean War. In 1962, upon a visit to the U.S., Panos met and married Rose (Kostakos) Bouboulis. They enjoyed a blessed union of 32 years, until Rose's passing in 1994. He was employed by Bendix Fluid Power Division / Allied Signal / Lucas Aerospace. He supported the Apollo Mission and upon his retirement in 1990, held the position of Inspector for Hughes Aircraft - noted for the quality control of the Apache Helicopter. He was a wonderful husband, father, and friend, who never hesitated to share his wisdom. Always strong in his Greek Orthodox faith. He and his joy of living will be sorely missed.
