Evangelos Hagicostas Obituary

Evangelos was a widower who had lived in the northeast all his life. When his first wife Amy passed away, Angelo stayed in the house and would visit with his children. He was one of five siblings born to his parents, Anna and Pantalis Hagicostas.


Angelo's sister Irene, and her husband Jack had a daughter, Ann Farrash, who was stationed at Keesler Air Force Base. Ann was the goddaughter of Angelo. She and her husband Paul were both at Keesler. They had two kids. Irene and Jack wanted to be near their grandchildren. So, Irene came to Ocean Springs to be with Ann and family. Angelo had a brother, Peter, who was with Ann. Angelo would come and visit with his siblings. He would drive down and after a few years he bought a house in Ocean Springs in April of 2005.


He was very involved with the Parish of Holy Trinity. He used his talent of maintenance to work with the Parish. He was here when Katrina hit. His sister decided to move. Her daughter retired and moved to NC.


Angelo was a happy, good-hearted man who wanted to help folks. Our parish had damages from Katrina. He was in the community to address damages to the parish family also. Angelo served as President of the board and continued his love to help the little church. He was recognized for his hard work and was nominated to receive the Saint Michael medal/award. To this day the award is given to two individuals who work for the church and parish.


Angelo met his second wife to be. Photine Vlahos, of Biloxi. She was a retired SPED teacher on the coast at Ellisville State School. They married in 2009 and lived in Ocean Springs. She had received the first St. Michael medal from our parish. Angelo will be missed by all who knew him. He had a joy in life and enjoyed himself. He loved to sing, dance, cook, and go to the casino.


Services were held at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Biloxi, MS, on Thursday, February 29, 2024, and then he will be buried at Calverton National Cemetery in Calverton, NY. Those services will be handled by Dodge-Thomas Funeral Home in Islip, NY.
