Along with his brothers, Emilios grew to love fishing on his father's boat. In his 20s, he became a merchant marine, sailing around the world on large vessels. In 1970, Emilios and Anna migrated to the United States and settled down in Brighton Massachusetts where they started and raised their family. In 1974, Emilios opened up an automotive shop called "Samos Auto Electric" in Cambridge MA where he worked for 26 years until his retirement. Once retired, Emilios and Anna moved to Middleton MA as well as their vacation home in Samos Greece where his family spent their summer vacations.
Emilios loved spending time with family and friends. You would often find them enjoying coffee and good food while playing backgammon and discussing politics and world affairs. He also nurtured his creative side by writing poetry and song lyrics. He was a compassionate and generous person who was fun to be around and will be greatly missed.
