Stacy Socrates Maou, 75, of New Hyde Park, New York, passed away on June 8, 2019, surrounded by family.

He was born to parents Anastasis Maou and Paraskevi Socrates on January 10, 1944, in Ora, Cyprus. The eldest of four children, he was a loving brother to his siblings, Mary, Nicholas and Olga. He came to the United States with his mother and siblings in November 1955, to join his father who had arrived in the U.S. (New York) three years prior in order to establish a life for his family.

A whiz in math, he worked at a bank after graduating high school, and met his future wife, Helen, shortly thereafter. He soon after decided to attend school for hairdressing and later became a business owner of a few salons for over 50 years.

He married Helen in 1965 and they were blessed with four children: Lisa, Nicholas, Michael and Christopher. He had three amazing grandsons: Nicholas, Christian and Christopher. He was the proud uncle of George, Alexia, Nicholas and Emily.

Stacy was predeceased by his brother, father, mother and wife. He is survived by his four children, three grandchildren, two sisters, two nieces and two nephews.

Stacy was an avid sports fan and enjoyed rooting for his favorite teams: the Mets, Jets, Islanders and Knicks. He enjoyed playing paddle ball and going to Atlantic City. A kind and generous man, he was loved by all that knew him.

Uncle Stacy, the last time we ever saw each other was at Emily’s wedding last year. Dancing. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. That memory brings tears to my eyes as I write this. We were laughing, singing, and enjoying the moment without a care in the world. I’m grateful that that was our last moment together in this world. I’ll always remember you as the caring, generous, fun loving uncle you are. I grew up in your salon on the weekends and so many of my childhood memories involve you in them. I’m sorry you had to go through what you did the last few years, but I know you’re in a good place now with your wife, parents, and brother. I miss you from the bottom of my heart, and love you dearly. Thank you for being the uncle I needed in my life. Till we meet again ❤️

It was the early 1980's and a young coronary care unit nurse at Booth Memorial Hospital named Beatrice was taking care of Anastasis Maou. After getting to know her, Mr. Maou asked this nurse to "please let my son cut your hair," and she accepted. Little did she realize at the time that a lifelong friendship would be born. For nearly forty years, Beatrice and Stacy maintained a wonderful and genuine friendship, eventually leading to her children knowing him as Uncle Stacy. Christopher, Alexis, and Nicholas revered and loved their uncle. He was a lovely and compassionate man who always made us feel at home. From a lifetime of salon visits, countless nights spent at The Borgata in Atlantic City, and in depth discussions about the Mets vs. Yankees, his memory will forever live on in our hearts. We will always remember and cherish his laugh, generosity, and the times we spent together over the many years. He will be dearly missed and we express our deepest and sincerest condolences to his entire family. We love you, Uncle Stacy, may you rest in peace. We hope there's a salon chair waiting for you up there. All our love, Beatrice, Christopher, Alexis, and Nicholas Meusburger.

I was saddened to learn of Stacy’s passing. He was an extraordinarily unassuming gentleman. He possessed a rich family heritage which afforded him Old World charm and a playful side which made him always a delight to be with. He was conspicuously generous and persistently thoughtful. He always had the ability to make you feel very special and very welcome. Meanwhile, it was really him that was so special. Unfortunately, it’s been a long while since I’ve seen him, but I am very happy to have known the man with the warm smile, the great sense of humor and the huge heart for as long as I did. He will surely be very missed by all that he touched. Rest In Peace gentle soul. Respectfully, Charles Meusburger and Family.
