HACKENSACK, N.J. — John Kourgelis, of Hackensack, died on Saturday, Jan. 7. He was 84.

He was a man that enjoyed the simple moments in life.

In his years of retirement, his daily trips to the Venetian in Garfield to visit with his sons and family members brought him great pleasure. He enjoyed his annual trips to his native island Chios, Greece and his village Agios Georgios Sikousis.
