Obituary for Michael Economakos


Michael Anthony Economakos passed away after a long struggle with cancer on March 3, 2017. He was born in Queens, New York. He moved to Florida in 1969 and loved the hot sun, ocean breezes and the circles of friends he created.

He is survived by his sister Rose, brother-in law Martin; nieces Lori, Lisa and Maria; one great-niece, two great nephews.

He was preceded in death by his mother Rose, his father George and his partner Sam.

From an early age, Michael was fascinated by hardware and always had a large collection of keys. He loved being a salesman, getting his start at age12 at Molbegott’s Hardware on Liberty Ave in Richmond Hill. He was in sales for the next four decades, working as a department store manager, hardware salesman and in real estate among others trades.

Michael was an out-going man who loved getting to know people and helping others in need. In later life this was exemplified by his commitment to his AA family of friends. He loved to cook, loved cars (owning around 60 over the years, including some beautiful classics) and had his own sense of humor. We will miss him, his smile and his laugh.
