I never met your dad but your frequent photos and notes about him on Facebook over the years, and your recent photos, stories and his life history are proof positive of what a special, loving and well loved man he was.

So sorry for your loss. He will always be in our hearts. We have a picture somewhere of him, and all of the kids, one Easter. I was going to take Gray out of it and he said, "What? no! He's here, he's family." Such a sweet man! He will be missed LOVE, Shirley, Patrick and Grayson Gaides

John Nikolaou, 75, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend passed away peacefully in his home on Friday, November 25, 2016 in Sugar Land, Texas. He was born in Heraklion, Crete, Greece and immigrated his family to the United States in 1971.

John is survived by his beloved wife Ritsa of 52 years, his daughters Minnie Nikolaou-Stamos; Nikoletta Nikolaou Roosma (two grandsons Cole and Grant); Jim Stamos, who was like a son to him; his sisters Titika Salla, Athina Primikiri; brothers George and Kyriakos Nikolaou, Michali Sallas and countless nieces, nephews and other family which he adored.

John enjoyed inventing, drawing and working with his hands. During his retirement, he spent countless hours in his garden and one never left his home without something from it. He was selfless as helping others brought him much joy. His greatest accomplishment was his family and he was a devoted husband and father. Being surrounded by friends and family was his love. He especially enjoyed spending time with his two grandsons advising them of life’s lessons as only a grandfather could do.

Those who knew John would say the same thing; he was kind, loving and generous. He would give his last dollar and the shirt off his back to anyone less fortunate. He not only had compassion for people but was an animal lover as well.

John’s life will be celebrated at the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral J.P. Martell Hall on Sunday, December 4, 2016 from four o’clock in the afternoon to seven o’clock in the evening, where we will say, just as he would, “Hey Babe, I am going to miss the bitching!” (In a Greek accent of course.) May his Memory Be Eternal.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to:
