Anthony Kammas, Member of Board of Trustees at Sts. Constantine & Helen, 49

NEW YORK – It is with great sadness, but hope in the resurrection of the Lord that Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Brooklyn noted the passing of the Servant of God Anthony Kammas, a devoted member of its Board of Trustees.

Anthony Kammas was born on May 17, 1971 in Queens, NY to Pantelis and Kleo Kammas. His beloved wife, Maria Papaderos, is an alumna of the A. Fantis Parochial School.

Kammas was a devoted family man, an elected member of the Board of Trustees, and a dedicated volunteer at the Cathedral. Anthony also served as the New York City Finance Co-Chairman for the New York Republican State Committee, a leader in the Hellenic American Community, a member of the Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce, a board member of the Hellenic American Leadership Council, and the secretary-elect of the Professional Insurance Association of New York.

His is survived by his wife Maria, and his children Elizabeth and Pantelis.

The viewing will be at the Cathedral on Thursday, July 2 from 6-9 PM with a Trisagion service at 7:30 PM. Please note, we will stop viewing between 7:15 and 8:00 PM for the Trisagion service to take place. Due to the pandemic, only family members will be allowed to sit in the church; all others will be able to pay their respects, and immediately exit at the guidance of the Board of Trustees.

The Funeral Service will be held for family members and will be presided over by His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America on Friday, July 3 at 9:30 AM.

Under New York State guidelines, anyone who wishes to attend either service must observe all protocols as directed by the Board of Trustees, and wear face masks at all times.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that all donations be made in Anthony's memory to Autism Speaks. Donations can be made by clicking the following link, www.autismspeaks.org.
