John E. Kalakos

June 11, 1943 — April 13, 2023

Green Tree

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the sudden passing of the head of our family, John Kalakos of Green Tree, on Thursday, April 13, 2023. He was the son of the late Margaret and Ted Kalakos. Left to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Judy; daughter, Kristen; sister, Fotaine; and nephew, Jason. He also leaves behind an aunt, Zafero Tsikerdanos; and many cousins. John, always a Pittsburgher, spent his early days in Brookline. After college, he began working at Pittsburgh National Bank and Kaufmann's. John devoted 40-plus years at TRACO and made lasting friendships in and out of the window business which led to his consulting work in retirement. He was always passionate about family and friends. John will be buried at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church. The service will be private. If you wish to remember him, his favorite charities were: Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, 123 Gilkeson Rd., PGH., PA 15228; PVSEC, 807 Camp Horne Rd., PGH., PA 15237; or De Paul Institute, 6202 Alder St., PGH., PA 15206. Arrangements entrusted to WILLIAM SLATER II FUNERAL SERVICE, (412-563-2800), Scott Twp.
