Nickolaos Maglaris, at the age of 75, passed away peacefully on May 16, 2024, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Simiades, Greece on September 15, 1948, he was the son of the late Theodosios and Pagona (née Spiropoulos) Maglaris.
He was the devoted father of Ted and John (Brittany) Maglaris, and Danae (Robbie) Griffin; former husband to Olga Liakis and Despina Maglaris; and the cherished grandfather (Pappou) of Niko, Leo, and the late Nicholas. Nickolaos was also a dear brother to Christos (Gianina) Maglaris, Theodore (Alyce) Maglaris, and Sophia (Larry) Pappas.
A beloved uncle, godfather, cousin, and friend, Nickolaos shared wonderful memories with many. He was a proud entrepreneur who owned and managed several successful establishments including Rain Disco, Four Eagles, Fantasy, Backstreet Bar and Grille, Angels Restaurant, Rise n Dine Cafe, and Wild Monk. Known for his loving nature, tireless work ethic, and selflessness, Nickolaos also captivated many with his million-dollar smile and legendary dance moves, holding the title of Best Tsamiko Dancer in Peloponnesus, Greece. His absence will be deeply felt by all who knew him. May his Memory be Eternal! All arrangements entrusted to Orrico Kourelis Funeral Services Inc.
