Kyriakos Lambis, Rhodes-Native and Ahepan, 60

HOWLAND, OH – Kyriakos “Charles” Lambis, 60, passed away June 8 at the Hospice House in Poland, OH, the Tribune Chronicle reported.

Lambis was born January 5, 1960, in Rhodes, Greece, the son of Fotios and Fedra Lambis. He was a 1978 graduate of Warren Western Reserve High School and a 1985 graduate of Youngstown State University, with a bachelor’s degree in material science. Lambis worked for AK Steel, Severstal and Rouge as a metallurgical engineer, for 34 years. He previously worked at Ford and Chrysler plants.

A member of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Warren, Lambis also belonged to the AHEPA Zeus Chapter 88 and the Pan Rhodian Society. He enjoyed traveling and was an avid reader and swimmer.

Lambis was an incredible husband, father, son, and brother and was deeply loved by all his family. He loved to take care of everyone and could answer any question. He was known by family as “our human Google.” His quick-wit was unmatched and all who knew him will remember his light-hearted sense of humor and sweet laughter. Despite the challenges he faced over his 10-year battle, he never complained, never burdened anyone with his fears, his worries or his problems. His faith remained unwavering throughout and the love and pride he had for his wife and daughter only grew stronger.

He is survived by his wife, Sotiria “Cindy” Lambis, whom he married November 7, 1987; his daughter, Leetsa Lambis of Warren; his mother, Fedra Lambis of Warren; a sister, Penny (John) Tataris of Howland; and his mother-in-law, Flora Fakkas of Warren; numerous brothers and sisters-in-law; as well as nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father; his father-in-law, Emanuel Fakkas; and a brother-in-law, Savas Fakkas.

Those attending the calling hours were encouraged to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Family and friends paid their respects on June 12 at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, 429 High St., Warren, OH 44481.

A private funeral service was held on June 12 at St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, with the Rev. Constantine Valantasis officiating. Burial followed at All Souls Cemetery in Bazetta.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made, in Lambis’ name, to St. Nektarios Church, Aigina, Greece, St. Nektarios Church, Chania, Crete, St. John Maximovitch, San Francisco, the Nativity of the Theotokos, Saxonburg, PA or St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church; all can be sent in c/o St. Demetrios Church, 429 High St., Warren, OH 44481.
