Angelos Lappas, age 60, passed away suddenly with his family by his side on April 3, 2016. Angelos was born in Krendi, Greece and came to the U.S. in 1984. He returned to Greece a few years later when he met his wife Olga. They got married there and moved to the U.S. together in 1987 and then started their family. Angelo learned the dry cleaning business from family and was able to buy Master Cleaners in E. Weymouth and then operate it for almost 20 years. He also was very active with St. Catherine’s Greek Church in Braintree. Angelos enjoyed hosting family barbeques especially cooking for everyone on the grill, but most of all enjoyed spending time with his family of whom he was so proud.
