Peter Theodore Christos December 15, 1952 – September 3, 2011
Peter Christos, beloved husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away September 3rd after a short but valiant struggle with lung cancer. Peter is survived by his wife of over 35 years, Holly; their sons, Theodore, Alexander and William; his son Zach Morris; his mother, Elaine Tannors; brothers John Christos and Ted Tannors; and his sister Alexandra Bradfield. He is preceded in death by his father, Theodore Christos, and his sister Cathy Kirst.
Growing up in La Canada, Peter played baseball and football for La Canada High School and was active in Little League and Scouts, attaining the honor of Eagle Scout. The friendships he valued most were formed during those times. His career in the Industrial Pump field as an Inside Engineer and Salesman was cut short due to a debilitating hearing loss in 1993. He changed his title to “Mr. Mom” and took on all the activities and duties that go with it in his own unique manner while his wife went into the outside workforce. He was happiest when his wife and sons were with him at home, or camping, as well as barbequing or watering in his own back yard. He leaves a legacy to all those he cared for with his simple but profound wisdom dealing with life. Peter will be greatly missed by his family and all those who were blessed to know him.
