George K. Bardossas

Giorgios (“George”) Konstantinos Bardossas, born in Dovrena (Theva), Greece, June 25, 1934, fell asleep in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ April 24, 2024.  Preceded by his wife, Eleni “Nitsa” Bardossas, he is survived by his children Rev. Dn. Konstantinos “Dino” (Dkn. Julie) of St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church, Greenwood Village, CO and Kathy (David Kling) of St. Anna Greek Orthodox Church, Roseville, CA, and 7 grandchildren: Gregory and Michael Kling, Abreana (Jon), Nikolas, Josef, Stefan and Eleni-Marie.  He is also preceded by three of his dearest friends Harry and Linda Kollias, and Paul Palmer.

George immigrated to the United States during the mid-1950’s and became a US Citizen originally residing in New York and Detroit where he learned from the Italian-American community the skills of the food and beverage industry.  A few years later he had the call to drive westward and took Route 66 all the way to Southern California where he took up residence in Hollywood with his beautiful bride Eleni “Nitsa” (US Citizen immigrated from Xylokastro, Greece) for twenty years before moving to Costa Mesa, California in the late 1970’s with his family and was one of the founding members of St. Paul Greek Orthodox Church, Irvine.

George enjoyed his early career in the hospitality industry in the LA area and met a lot of fascinating people. After gaining some experience and contacts he decided to use his own creativity and ventured out as a restauranteur. He owned and operated a variety of establishments in both LA and Orange County. After working in the hospitality industry for a memorable 40+ years, he retired after suffering a stroke and lived with his daughter and family in Northern California up until September 2022 where he lived with his son and family in Parker, Colorado.

His strong work ethic, passion to offer hospitality and sincere service during his career, was equally matched with his devoted love for family and the Orthodox Christian Faith.  His optimism on life, handsome features and style for fashion, along with his great hair, fun sense of humor and warm sincere charm, George was admired by those who came in contact with him.  He will be missed but his memory will be eternal
