Nikos Athan Andronikos was the youngest of 8 children and was known for his quick smile, good humor and love of people. His greatest joy was meeting someone new. To him a new person was a friend he hadn’t met yet. He is survived by his wife Alexandra, children Vickie, Paul and Travis, daughters-in-law Robin and Brenda, grandchildren Jake, Kris, Dallas, and Ty, great grandchildren Lucas and Emmy, and many nieces and nephews.
He was a contractor, developer and ran a picnicking resort with his family for many years. He was previously married to Maria for 30 years before she died and they had two children Vickie and Paul. He was later married to Alexandra for 24 years.
He loved celebrating traditions and entertaining people. He was proud of his Greek heritage and loved singing and dancing and making up rhymes and songs. He loved languages and when he heard someone speaking Spanish, Italian, Arabic or other languages he would say hello and speak a few words in that language.
His niece Cynthia said he managed to make everyone he knew feel special and incredibly loved. The many comments people made about Niko were that he was full of life, charismatic, always happy, smiling, joking, joyful, humorous, kind, passionate, had magnetic energy, and was enthusiastic, the life of the party and sometimes plain silly.
His memory will be eternal.
