Nikolaos Antonios Skokos
November 16, 1950 – August 31, 2019
Nikolaos Antonios Skokos, age 68, passed away peacefully surrounded by family Saturday 8/31 at his home in Bellevue, WA. Nikos overcame lung cancer, which metastasized weeks after being deemed a cancer survivor post surgery. Survived by his wife of 38 years Brenda Skokos, three sons Antonio Skokos, Demetri Skokos and Christos Skokos, and grandson Cruise Skokos. Born in Athens Greece, Nikos was one of eight children. His interest in photography and traveling the world lead him to America by boat in his tender teen years. He spent his early days calling a boat home between serving the in the US Navy and fishing in Alaska. He met Brenda at Saint Christopher Square in New York in a remarkable demonstration of fait, as Brenda was also an immigrant, but from New Zealand. Together, they raised their family in Bellevue, WA where Nikos spent decades as a successful salesmen in the automotive and timeshare industries. Nikos and Brenda also owned an adult family home, which they operated out of their home for over 20 years. Nikolaos will be remembered for his disciplined work ethic, devotion to his family and strong commitment to his faith.
