Constantine (Gus) Lukas was born in Nicosia, Cyprus on August 8, 1936. His parents Lukas Constantinou and Apostolou Karaniki had four children Vaso, Maria, Eve and Constantine. After completing his time in the military, Gus married Georgia Christou in 1959 and moved to the United States of America the following year, where he completed college and then started a family. They had four children Lisa (55), Tina (54), George (51) and Sandra (48).
Our father had an amazing work ethic that we have inherited from him. Working two jobs, he was an engineer for the government during the day and the head engineer at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, DC in the evening. He made sure his family was taken care of and had a good life. When he was ready to retire, he and his new wife Judy moved to Cape Coral, Florida. Our dad seemed like a brand-new person. Learning to relax in the sun, gardening, fishing and he loved to cook. He became a dog person and fell in love with his two Jack Russel Terriers, Blondie and Tuco. One thing that made him the happiest is when his kids came to visit, along with his 11 grandchildren. We will miss him dearly, but know it was his time to be at peace. Now we look forward to celebrating his life and what he meant to us.
Our fathers wishes were to have his ashes scattered over the ocean that he loved so much. We will honor him and his wishes as a family.
Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.
