Christo S. Dengeles, age 90, of Stephens City, Virginia, passed away on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at his residence.

Chris was born in 1929 in Flushing, Queens, New York, the son of the late Stergios and Margaret Dengeles. Chris eventually relocated with family to Long Island, New York where he worked in the family restaurant, met his first wife, Marie L. Procter, and started a family.

Chris was of Greek Orthodox faith, held a private pilot’s license and enjoyed flying World War II-era airplanes. His other hobbies included model trains, World War II history and collecting antique guns.

Chris is survived by his wife, Vickie S. Dengeles; daughter, Kimberly M. Ahern (John); son, Christo S. Dengeles (Angie); daughter-in-law, Melissa Dengeles, and many loving grandchildren and great grandchildren.
