OBITUARY

Constantine Mathas

June 19, 1937July 3, 2020

Constantine “Connie” Mathas, 83, of Dallas, Texas, passed away on July 3, 2020. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 19, 1937. Connie graduated from Washington High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1955. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee before entering the U.S. Army Reserve in 1960, where he was called into active duty during his service. Throughout a long and storied career of more than 50 years, Connie excelled in educational, real estate, and insurance sales, with companies including The Richards Company Inc., Collier’s Encyclopedia, American Invsco, and Family Learning Systems.

Connie was active in the Greek Orthodox communities in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Dallas, Texas throughout the course of his life. He served on the Parish Council for many years at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Dallas, and he always enjoyed serving the community at the church’s annual Greek Food Festival.

Connie had the most generous, kind, and faithful heart. He dedicated his life to his family, friends, work colleagues, and church community. He was revered as a mentor, motivator, and friend. He will always be remembered for his dynamic and charming personality, captivating storytelling abilities, and keen sense of humor. He was a life-long fan of the Green Bay Packers, as well as a lover of music and a patron of the arts. His support for his children in their academic, athletic, and artistic endeavors was boundless. For this, and so much more, Connie is owed a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid. He was preceded in death by parents, Thomas Efthimios and Panayiota Mathas; brother, Efthimios T. Mathas; sisters, Chrysoula Mathas and Katherine Panagos; and son, Alex Mathas.

Connie will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 34 years, Ann Fitch Mathas; daughter, Margaret Mathas; sons, Jason Mathas and Christian Mathas; and his many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, godchildren, and childhood friends.

Dear Ann, Jason, Margaret & Christian,
In April 1974, I attended a Collier management meeting at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, little did I know that I would meet a man who would always be there for me.
I'm grateful God made Connie part of my life,
Bob Craig

Connie was known as the gentleman of the book business because of his great people skills. He was liked by all who met him, and loved by many. He was my friend for over 40 years. I will truly miss our phone conversations.

To Ann and the entire Mathas Family,

How stunned was I to hear of the passing of a wonderful man, who worked in many aspects at his Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Dallas. His dedication as a Parish Council member and his many years of service including volunteering at the church's Annual Greek Food Festival in Dallas will be sorely missed. May you, my good friend - Rest in Peace.

What a beautiful family. I have many memories of Connie and Ann while my mom and dad lived on Sea Pines. You were at a few birthday parties for my nephews... in the side yard. I remember clearly. And I’d always see y’all walking together. What a wonderful life.

May Christ remember him in His kingdom always.

Dear sweet Ann I can’t tell how sad I am about Connies passing. He was a true gentleman in every sense of the word . From my time serving with him on the board to working with him in the Greek Fry booth I knew I could count him as a friend . Our Cowboy vs Packers debates were spirited but always ended with a laugh . I will miss him dearly and May His Memory Be Eternal. Sending my love and my prayers to you and the kids . Regards Chris Canellos

We have many fond memories with Connie and Ann when we lived in Dallas. Connie was a genuine friend, a gentleman with a fun loving spirit. His faithful love for his church was generous, steadfast but unassuming. May his memory be eternal and may his family be comforted with God's love.

To my “Uncle Connie “ one of the most generous and kind individuals I have ever known (along with his brother Tim). He taught me a lot about how to behave and treat others. I can only hope that I can do the same for my children and nieces and nephews.

Connie was an inspiration to me from the time we first met as business associates in the mid-1970s. A very focused, hard-working professional at all times, he took the time and interest to give me a lot of good advice early in my career. Over the years Ruth and I shared lots of laughs and very memorable good times at company events and overseas trips. We've experienced first-hand the deep love he had for his children. And no doubt the love of his life Anne...the mention of her in one of our chats would always bring out the big Connie smile. We are privileged to have Anne as a friend, and our prayers are with her and the "kids" as they move on in ways that will surely make Connie proud. Here's to a very good man, and to a life well lived!
