Anastasios G. "Stosh" Christopoulos Obituary
Stosh passed into eternal life on June 9, 2018, the 34th anniversary of his 1st date with his loving wife of 33-years, Peggy (nee Engle) Christopoulos of Highland Park, IL. Born in Chicago on January 22, 1929 to the late George and Despina (nee Betzelos) Christopoulos, originally from Asea Greece. Stosh was co-owner of Commonwealth Builders and Commonwealth Construction Management, LLC. He was a carpenter for 70-years and built or supervised construction on hundreds of properties in Chicago/Suburbs, IL, Denver & Colorado Springs, CO, and Phoenix & Scottsdale, AZ. For the past 27-years he served as Vice President of Development for F&F Realty in Skokie, IL. Stosh was loved and respected for his dedication, honesty and integrity by many in the industry.

Stosh was a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, son, brother, cousin and best friend to many. The family often joked that no matter where we were in the country, Stosh always knew someone or they knew him. Always the last one out the door and always, always available to help anyone with a problem or concern about their home or business. He was all about innovation and even invented tools and products. He especially enjoyed mentoring the men who worked with him. Stosh graduated Ahmundsen High School, January Class of 47 as a proud Viking, coordinating their 50th Class Reunion and many that followed.
