Angelo Pete Politis unexpectantly and sadly passed away on May 2nd, 2021 surrounded by his family. Angelo was born on March 30th, 1957 in Charlotte, North Carolina. He was the son of Pete Politis and the late Alice Politis. Angelo was raised in Charlotte, NC by Greek immigrants and was very in tune with his culture, as he would visit Greece often growing up. He met his wife Athina in Greece and they got married in 1984. He raised his family in Charlotte, including his two sons who he was so very proud of.
Angelo was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, and son. He was extremely loved by his community at his church, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, where he volunteered his services for multiple events including the Yiasou! Greek Festival. Angelo was also a very well-known Wedding Videographer where he worked over thirty-five hundred weddings, Greek and American.
Angelo is survived by his wife Athina, his two sons Peter and Dimitri, his father Pete Politis, his brother Louie Politis and his wife, Irene, his brother Chris Politis and his wife, Kimberly. He will also be greatly missed by his nieces and nephews, Hope Politis Leak, her husband John, and their children, Pete Politis, Zoe Politis, Samantha Politis, and Christopher Politis, his wife Sheila, and their children.
Angelo had heavy interests in many different areas such as videography and photography, as well as robotics and engineering. He also had a deep love for Star Wars and Star Trek which he spread with his sons Peter and Dimitri. We will never forget his smile and laughter that he spread with everybody he came across, and the endless memories he left with those close to him.
Visitation will be held at 10:00 AM, followed by the funeral service at 11:00 AM on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral with the Reverend Father Vasileios Tsourlis officiating.
