Mario Gaitanos

born Nov. 8, 1958, passed away at his home in Canton, Ohio on April 21, 2021. He joins his eldest son, Peter Gaitanos; and grandparents, Maria and Panagiotis Bascos and Christoforos and Eleni Gaitanos in eternal life. He is survived by his loving wife of 35 years, Angela Gaitanos; his two sons, Saki and Gregory Gaitanos; devoted parents, Petros and Athanasia Gaitanos; sister, Sylvia (Steve) Stamoules; and brother Christopher (Pam) Gaitanos.

Mario will be remembered for his lightheartedness, eagerness to bear responsibility, and capacity to laugh and encourage those around him to share in his optimism. Mario achieved success in his professional career as a revered attorney, due in part to his exceptional work ethic and commitment to his clients. He was a lifelong member of St. Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church and the Canton chapter of AHEPA.

Mario and I grew together on 36th street in Canton. We were best buddies our entire childhood. We tried to keep in touch afterwards but moving away from home, college, and life in general got in the way. We'd correspond via email, send the occasional Christmas card, and see each other at class reunions which was always a pleasure. We'd catch up on family and kids, work and parents, etc. Mario was one of only a couple of friends who showed up to both my parents' funerals. I'm sad I won't be able to email my friend anymore or see him at the next class reunion but ...... I know he's in a better place and that I'll see him again ...... some day. My sincere condolences on your loss ..... May the fond memories of Mario help ease the pain you feel now.
Kindest regards, Ed Zastawny
