Angelo T. Eoannou, of Kenmore, a retired business owner and World War II Army veteran, died Thursday in Delaware Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Buffalo. He was 92.
Born in Evia, Greece, he was a child when he immigrated to the United States with his family in 1924. In 1939, he graduated from Hutchinson-Central High School. During World War II, he fought in Gen. George S. Patton’s 3rd Army in the European Theatre.
In 1945, after returning home from his military service, Mr. Eoannou went to work managing his father’s business, the New Genesee Restaurant, one of the earliest Greek-owned restaurants in Buffalo. The restaurant was sold in 1960.
Mr. Eoannou was a co-owner of the Thruway Plaza Mall Liquor Store from 1962 to 1992.
He is survived by his wife of 65 years, the former Pauline Andromidas; two sons, Thomas G. and Stephen G.; two daughters, Carol Williams and Susan DeVoe; and three grandchildren.
A funeral liturgy will be offered at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Hellenic Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, Delaware Avenue and Utica Street.
