Haralambos Giangos

Haralambos “Bobby” Giangos, 74, of Stamford, passed away peacefully at his home on Wednesday, May 24, 2023, surrounded by his loving family. Haralambos was born in Karitsa, Greece on January 19, 1949 to the late Efthimios and Georgia Davarela Giangos.
Haralambos grew up in the village of Karitsa, Greece during difficult times and, from a young age, persevered with hard work and determination to provide for his family. In 1972, he immigrated to the United States, eventually making his way to Stamford, Connecticut, in search of greater opportunities and a better life. With very limited resources, in an unfamiliar land, he was driven to work hard for the betterment of his family, going on to hold several positions in different restaurants. In 1984, he married the love of his life Irini and they raised their two sons together. He went on and started his own successful handyman business.
He enjoyed being outdoors and activities such as hunting, fishing, gardening, and hosting gatherings for family and friends in his backyard. As a devout and avid member of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, he volunteered countless hours and used his handyman skillset to complete many projects for the improvement of the church. He was a caring and loving man, who helped out anyone and everyone in need. Upon retirement, he enjoyed his annual trips to Greece, spending time with his family and friends, and getting to see his granddaughter. He will always be remembered as an amazing family man, who did anything and everything he could, to provide his family with a life of love and happiness. He will truly be missed.
Haralambos is survived by his sons; Anthony Giangos and his wife Karina, of Norwalk and Theodoros Giangos of Stamford, as well as his sister Evmorfia Giagkou of Greece and his sister-in-law Eleni Tournas of Stamford, his niece Angela Frazis and her husband Demetrios, his nephew Dimitri Tournas, his nieces Marella, Fotini, Georgia Karanatsiou and Georgia Giagkou. He is also survived by his granddaughter Irini and grand-nephew Mihali.
Besides his parents, Haralambos is predeceased by his wife Irini Giangos, brother-in-law Panagiotis Tournas, his sister Hariklia Karanatsiou, his brother Anthony Giagkou and his in-laws Theodoros and Grigoria Tournas.
