OBITUARY

Fitchburg – Spiros G. “Spike” Bourekas, 91, of Fitchburg, passed away peacefully in his home on November 12, 2018.

Spike was born in Northern Epirus, Greece on June 19, 1927. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1947, and after becoming a naturalized citizen, joined the US Army. He proudly served his country during the Korean War until his honorable discharge in 1952. For several years, Spike worked as an auditor for the IRS and in the early 1960’s, began running his father’s business, George’s Hot Dog Stand. He owned and operated the stand for over 20 years, until his retirement.

Upon retirement, Spike enjoyed spending his winters in Florida and traveling with his wife, Nancy, and his son, Gregory. He was an avid reader who enjoyed discussing politics and reminiscing.

With his father George being one of the co-founders of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, Spike was very active within the church and eventually became president of the Men’s Club in the 1970’s. Spike was a man of great faith and will be missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his two grandsons, Matthew Bourekas and Alexander Bourekas, both of Ashburnham.

Spike was predeceased by his wife Nancy (Lastella) Bourekas in March 2018, and his son Gregory Bourekas in May 2018.
