Christos (Chris) James Condos, 89, of South Burlington, VT passed away peacefully on August 15, 2015 with his family by his side. He was born on June 24, 1926 in Orange, NJ, the eldest son of James and Pariskeve (Paplexopoulos) Condos. Chris had 3 brothers: John and wife Marion, Theodore and wife Georgia (both predeceased), and Basil and wife Evthokia (both predeceased). Chris graduated from Orange (NJ) High School and served in the US Navy during WWII. He attended Seton Hall University before beginning to work in the restaurant business with his father. Chris married Irene (Catacalos), on June 5th 1949 and they were married for 66 years. They later moved their family to Burlington VT where he worked his entire adult life managing restaurants.

Chris is survived by the love of his life, and best friend, Irene, and their 3 children: Jim Condos and his partner Annie Noonan, Ed Condos and his wife Lois, and Maria Blanchette and her husband Mark.

Chris had a passion for word games and was famous for spending many hours playing Scrabble, with his own children and grandchildren, or completing crosswords. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends and was thankful for the friendship of his many neighbors. Chris and his family were especially thankful for his care from UVM Medical Center, and especially the amazing staff at Allenwood Senior Housing. He was a member, and over the years, active in the leadership at the Greek Orthodox Dormition of the Mother of God Church in Burlington.
