Obituary Condolences

Nicolas H. CHRISTO Nicolas Harry Christo was born on February 20, 1931, in Queteze, Albania, to parents of Greek descent and passed away on March 26, 2011, shortly after his 80th birthday. To escape the Communist takeover of Albania, he and his family fled over the mountains to Greece in 1951 and eventually made their way to Seattle in 1952. After working several years in the family furniture business, Doces Majestic, he joined the US Army and served our country for six years. Upon returning, he worked for 30 years at the Washington State Department of Transportation retiring in 1989. The following years were spent doing what he lovedbest: hunting and fishing, gardening at his Camano Island retreat, and always volunteering at the annual St. Demetrios Festival; his broiled chickens were unsurpassed. He is survived by his beloved wife of 46 years Eleni, son James Christo, daughter Eva (Steven) Aaron, and granddaughter Ally Aaron. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, March 31st, at 11:00 am, at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 2100 Boyer Avenue East, Seattle. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church.
