Chris Sarigianopoulos, 92

Campbell…Chris Sarigianopoulos, 92, of Campbell, passed away on January 14, 2023.

Chris was born on December 23, 1930 in Agrínion, Greece and moved to the United States in 1961. He was a loving and devoted husband to Irene, father, grandfather, and brother. He took pride in loving his family and working as a barber in Greece and an industrial painter when he came to the United States.

“A grandfather is someone with silver in his hair and gold in his heart.” With a full mane of silver, he was known as Pappou to his nine grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren who loved and adored him. Chris enjoyed working in his garden and watching soccer and football. He had a great sense of humor and a smile that lit up the room. He was also a devoted friend to those who were lucky to know him closely. 

Chris will be greatly missed by his children, John Sarigianopoulos; Gus (Denise) Sarigianopoulos; and Maria (Gus) Panagopoulos; his son-in-law, Louis Firmstone; his grandchildren; great grandchildren; and his many nieces and nephews in the United States, Australia, England, and Greece.

Preceding him in death were his loving wife, Irene, his daughter, Kleanthi Firmstone; grandson, Tony Firmstone; his parents Evrithiki and George; his siblings Polixeni (Elefterios) Markou, Maritsa (Nikola) Zapanti, Vasili (Maria) Sarigianopoulos, Stamati (Barbara) Sarigianopoulos, and Yianni (Sylvia) Sarigianopoulos.
