It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Christos who passed peacefully away on 20th May after battling Dementia followed by a short illness. Christos came to the UK in 1954 from his native Cyprus. He had just £10 in his pocket and a small suitcase which contained a few clothes and his hairdressing kit. He started work on the Cruise ships sailing out of London at the time as a hairdresser, and travelled the world providing hairdressing services to the cruise ship passengers. He met Margaret at the Hammersmith Palais, and they married in 1963.
Christos had saved every penny of his pay and had ambition. In 1968 he and Margaret moved to the new town of Milton Keynes where he opened his first salon in Wolverton. He worked tirelessly to build a successful business and expanded to Newport Pagnell. For over 50 years the business started from such humble origins has been providing attentive and professional hairdressing services to the people of Milton Keynes.
Christos opened Hair & Beauty salons in Wolverton/Stony Stratford And Newport Pagnell. He was particularly proud of the patient haircare work that looked after the cancer patients & teenage children with hair loss. His loved his family, wife Margaret, Mark Alison and his grandchildren Jo, Alex & Louise. He loved his work and all of his clients.
Christos’s funeral which takes place at Crownhill Crematorium at 2pm on Tuesday 4th June. All who knew him are very welcome to attend and following at the Swan Revived Hotel Newport Pagnell.
