Thomas "Tommy" Nicholas Kavadas
Tommy passed away Sunday evening, February 21, 2016 after a short but valiant struggle with cancer.
Tommy, born June 12th, 1944, was the oldest son of Nicholas & Constance Kavadas. In his early years, Tommy was involved in theater and dance and recognized for his service to his community in a number of plays and performances. While serving in the U.S. Airforce he met & married his ex-wife Janet, who preceded him in death. Tommy, like his father, was an excellent chef and an entrepreneur. He owned a catering company in Richmond, Virginia, creating the most splendid Greek and American cuisine.
In 1983 he returned to St. Louis, and shortly after, started an auto-brokerage business, trading in luxury cars. He was both educated and self-educated; with an interest in everything from art and architecture to finance and economics. He was a master networker in business. He was happiest in the company of his friends and family.
Tommy is survived by his two sons, Nicholas, and Joseph (Faith); a loving brother to Jimmy (Brenda), Chris (Kristina) & Mary Ann; and Grandfather to Ashley, Juliana, Sofia, Josef, Alexis & Krista.
