Obituary of Michael Dovas

Michael Kostas Dovas, age 75, of Joliet, passed away peacefully, Saturday, September 1, 2018 at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center, with his loving family by his side.

Born June 8, 1943 in Athens, Greece, he was the son of the late Kostandino and Maria Dovas.  Michael served in the Hellenic Air Force and studied political science at Panteion University in Athens prior to emigrating to the United States in 1968.

Michael was a long time member of Painters Local #33 and worked as a painter for the State of Illinois for over 30 years.

He was a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather and will remain forever in our hearts. Spending time with his family, especially his precious grandchildren, was the most important thing in his life.

Surviving are his beloved wife, Rena (nee Perdiou) Dovas of Joliet; two children, Kostas (Ourania) Dovas of Naperville, and Maria (Timothy) Schellhorn of Shorewood; five grandchildren, Michael Charles, Christopher Ryan and Stefanie Elizabeth Schellhorn, and Katerina Maria and Michael Kostas Dovas; two brothers, Georgios and Demitri Dovas; one sister, Vangelitsa Hatzipanos; and several nieces and nephews.
