Together they founded three successful limousine companies in Portland, Or. Spyro is a legend in the limousine industry. His first company was Tiffany Limousine.


Spyro retired in 2006. He loved working in his yard that looked like my big fat Greek wedding. He enjoyed cooking and having friends over and dining on the patio. He loved telling jokes and a good game of backgammon. He loved all music but especially Greek and opera. He loved his family and friends who were family.


Spyros will be greatly missed by his friends and family. We will greatly miss his quick wit, hearty laughter, and generosity. ( Parea which means company)
