Our brother in Christ, Christo Bargiuma, has fallen asleep in the Lord.

   Christo Bargiuma of Bridgeport, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 in his home.

    Mr. Bargiuma was born in Kranea, Macedonia, Greece to the late Ioan and Ioana Mihadas Bargiuma. After finishing high school in Thessaloniki he went on to college in Spain on a scholarship, where he studied chemistry and graduated Cum Laude from world famous, Salamanca University. He was a soccer player for Megas Alexandros team in Thessaloniki and he was a volleyball player and coach for the famous Real Madrid club in Spain. He became very good friends with the famous soccer player Puskas who also played for the same club.

    In 1971 he followed his family to Bridgeport, CT where he worked for General Electric, Perkin Elmer and retired from Voltarc Co.

   Christo will always be remembered for his generosity helping people less fortunate. He was a member of St. Dimitrie Romanian Orthodox Church where he helped the Church Annual Festival for so many years preparing his famous marinated shish kebob.

   Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 7, 2015 directly at St. Dimitrie Romanian Orthodox Church, 504 Sport Hill Rd., Easton, CT. Burial will follow in Lakeview Cemetery. Friends may call at St. Dimitrie Church on Tuesday from 10am to 11am, with services to follow.
