Smirgadis, George “Kenezo” a small town boy born in Greece on November 14th 1950, who built a wonderful life in America has passed at the age of 67 on the night of January 13th 2018. He lived his life to the fullest. He gave us many loving memories throughout his life, Such as: his family, his West Milford Diner, the wonderful meals he prepared that brought our family and friends together, including "homeless" meal night at the diner. Some other fond memories of him were: him giving everyone their own special nickname, giving everyone a taste of "spring water", giving candy to all the children who came to the diner, singing classic rock music in his Greek accent, always saying "I no too enthusiastic about this!" And using rubbing alcohol as a cure all. (it's a greek thing). All his grandchildren enjoy going to Papou's Diner, not only did they get enjoyment of being there but it also brought such joy to his heart.  We will never forget you, your strength, your generosity, your ambition, and your love you have given to all. Rest in peace. We love you so very much. He is survived by his children, Kimberlee & Richard, Cade & Valerie, Nicholas, Sonya & Cody, Alexandra & Mark. His grandchildren, Joseph, Kyia, Zackerie, Aidan, Cameron, Liam, Kayleigh, Alexis, Cade Drue, Giuliana, Mark, Luke, & Owen. His brother Spyro Smergadis and his niece Tonia Smergadis. And many other relatives. He is predeceased by his parents and the love of his life Kathleen Smirgadis “Keneza”. The wake will be on Friday, January 19th 2pm-4pm & 7pm-9pm at Richards Funeral Home, 1440 Union Valley Road, West Milford NJ. Disposition is private.
