Nicholas P. Papadakos, retired Justice, Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, age 92, of McKeesport, died Monday, Sept. 11, 2017. Born Jan. 24, 1925, in Hoboken, N.J., son of the late Rev. Petros M.

Nicholas P. Papadakos, retired Justice, Supreme Court of Pennsylvania,

Upon completion of his education (B.A. from Dickinson College in 1949 and law degree from Catholic University in 1952), he was admitted to the practice of law in Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania. He served as solicitor to various municipalities and was elected to the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County in 1975, serving in the Criminal Division and as administrative judge of the Civil Division until 1983, when he was elected as a justice on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, where he served until his retirement in 1995.

 

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

Eager to give back to his community and proud of his faith, culture and heritage, he served in many capacities at local, regional, national and international levels, being richly recognized for his service by his colleagues in the legal community and by many social, educational and Hellenic organizations and the Greek Orthodox faith community. An archon of the Order of St. Andrew, an honor bestowed by the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, and his title “Ekdikos” is in recognition of his lifetime accomplishments, dedicated to defending human rights and the rule of law.

 

Justice Papadakos is survived by his beloved wife of 67 years, Stavroula Sakellariou Papadakos; sons, Peter Clyde Papadakos, Esq., of McKeesport, James N. (Diane) Papadakos, of Boston, Mass., and Thomas N. Papadakos, Esq., of Pittsburgh; and grandchildren, Nicholas J. (Jasmine) Papadakos, Elena Stavroula Papadakos and Joseph Thomas Papadakos. He was preceded in death by his siblings, Michael (Kay) Pappas, George (Jeannette) Pappas, Thomas P. Papadakos and Lulu (Evan) Angelou.
