Angelo Tambis of Woodbridge, CT and Clearwater, FL died at 94 on March 30 in Clearwater after a brief illness. He was born in Athens, Greece in 1928 to Yiannis and Edifili (Souvatzidakis) Tambacologos. In 1954, he married Anastasia Helen Jennett of New Haven, CT in Athens, Greece. After 30 years as a painting contractor throughout the New Haven area, Angelo and his brother Padelis started a very small business supplying corrugated circles to local pizza restaurants in 1976. The business, Die-Cut Paper Products, Inc., located in West Haven, is a manufacturer of corrugated paper products throughout the Northeast. Angelo was actively involved in the business up until his death.
His greatest pleasure revolved around an active social life with his devoted wife Nanne (Anastasia), mainly among the Greek communities of New Haven and Clearwater. Both Angelo and Nanne are founding members of St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church in New Haven. He enjoyed frequent visits to Greece to see family and friends. Angelo was an amateur engineer, often redesigning machinery to accommodate tasks around his factory. He often sketched drafts of designs and made the machinery to follow. He was a talented painter, and loved puttering around in his garden. He was known for his incredible sense of humor and warm smile.
He is survived by his amazing and devoted wife of 69 years Nanne (Anastasia) and children John, Thomas, and Penelope, and six beloved grandchildren Taylor, Carlos, Chelsea, Benjamin, Evangelos (Elis), and Anastasia. Also survived by sister-in-law Catherine Tommaselli, brother-in-law Mathew (Sheila) Jennett, and numerous nieces and nephews in US and Greece. He is predeceased by siblings Fotini Efraimides (Yiorgos), Dimitri (Yiota) and Pandeli Tambacologos, and brother-in-law James Tommaselli.
Visiting hours will be 10 to 11 am at St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church, 1 Tower Lane, New Haven on Thursday, April 13, followed by a funeral service. Donations in his memory may be made to St. Basil Greek Orthodox Church. Celentano Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
