Christopher George Stathakis, son of George Mike and Paula Lucking Stathakis, died June 6, 2018.

Chris was born December 6, 1973 in Greenville, SC.

Chris graduated from JL Mann High School and went on to the College of Charleston.

Chris worked in the family business of Stax Restaurants. He owned his own restaurant, Stax Grill before selling his business and taking on a new career of construction.

Chris is survived by one brother, Michael George Stathakis who resides in Greenville along with his wife Lisa Porter Stathakis and their children, George Michael and Alexis. Chris had an extended list of family whom he loved and who loved him.

Chris’s enjoyment came through his many friends he adored. He always put them first along with family. Chris was a loving person. His smile, his quick wit was who he was. His loud laugh was his signature and was infectious.

His Mother, Father, Brother, family and friends are going to miss this special person and the light he brought to their lives. Chris loved his radio controlled cars and would be seen working on them often. He was an exceptional Soccer player growing up and through High School. He continued to enjoy watching the sport.

Chris left his mark on the world. IT was felt in the people around him. He had a huge, huge heart. Before Chris died he was as happy as we had ever seen him. He landed a good job that he was excited about and wanted to spend more time with his Mother and Dad. Thank God we had that special time together.

Chris and his best buddy worked on my bathroom renovation. I grew close to the two of them and I've been so heartbroken to hear of both of their passing. Chris was always so caring and always open to listen to me when I had a bad day or even a good day. It never bothered me to come home after work to the two of them even after a long day's work. I know this has affected sooo many persons in the community as anytime I mentioned Chris' name everyone knew him or knew of him. Such a good heart! You will be missed greatly, Chris! Family and friends, I pray for your strength at this time and in the days to come.

Paula, George, and Michael, so sorry for your sudden loss. I didn't find out until this afternoon and his service was finished long before that. I am eternally grateful for everything I learned from him and from working at the Peppermill. Love y'all.
Rest in peace Chris 💗

We are saddened to hear of Chris's passing. He was always a friendly and nice young man. When he ran the Stax restaurant in the mall food court, he would always take care of my Mother. When I would see him out somewhere, his first question was about my Mom. That always touched me and my Mother. Our prayers and condolences for his family.

My many years of memories of Chris center on his big smile, laughter, and his love for people. He had such a love for life and his family. He always shared an update on his family or a memory of soccer or Pelham when we dined at Stax. Our prayers are with all of you now and in the days ahead!
