Dino Kapetanakis Obituary
Dino Kapetanakis

AGE: 71 • Camarillo, CA

Dino (Konstantinos) Kapetanakis, age: 71 passed away on April 30, 2017 at his home in Camarillo, California. Dino was born in Sellasia, Greece and came to America as a young boy in 1955.

He lived most of his life in Asbury Park, and Little Silver, New Jersey prior to moving to Camarillo, CA in 2012. Dino graduated from Asbury Park High School and went on to graduate from Monmouth University with a Bachelor's Degree in History.

He was employed by the State of New Jersey, first as an Insurance Investigator for the Department of Insurance and then as an Interviewer for the Department of Labor. He retired in 2012. As a young man, Dino worked side by side with his beloved father learning the skills of carpentry. These skills served him well over his lifetime.

Dino was an avid reader on a multitude of subjects, however, his love for history and philosophy was always evident as he spent long hours in discussion with family and friends. He particularly loved being with people, celebrating his Greek heritage through song and dance, and always treasured his many visits to Greece over the years. The happiest day of his life was the birth of his son, Nicholas!

Most importantly, Dino was a kind, loving, generous man always willing to help anyone in need by giving of himself. Everyone truly enjoyed his unique sense of humor. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Dino is predeceased by his parents Nicholas and Constantina and his loving sister Betty Kapetanakis. He is survived by his loving and beloved wife, Shirley and his beloved son Nicholas of Camarillo, CA; his sister Nathalia Kapetanakis of Asbury Park, New Jersey and his sister Georgia Bougadis and her husband Taki of Athens Greece, and his nephew Nicholas Bougadis of Tampa Florida and his niece, Alexandra Bougadis of London, UK. He also has numerous relatives in both Greece and the United States.

In accordance with Dino's expressed wishes, he will be cremated privately. A memorial celebration of Dino's life will take place at a later date in New Jersey.
