Fandos, Michael George
of Webster Groves, died on Saturday, February 27, 2016 from complications resulting from a recent stroke. He was born August 16, 1926 in St. Louis. He was 89 years young. Michael, who was known to friends and family as Mike, married the love of his life, Alice Terss Fandos, in East St. Louis, Ill., on February 19, 1956. He spent the rest of his life, and a marriage that lasted 60 years, trying to keep up with her. He always boasted there was never a bad day spent with his "best friend." Her cooking skills surely didn't hurt. Mike was preceded in death by his parents, George M. and Stasa, nee Tsikiris, Fandos, as well as his sister, Helen, nee Fandos, Werner. Loving father to Stacie (Jim) Fryrear of St. Louis, George (Jules) Fandos of Atlanta, Ga., and Charles (Susie) Fandos of St. Louis; Papou (grandfather) to Allison, Rachel, Jennifer, Michael, Nicholas, Natalie, Melissa, Mitch, Maggie and Anna Margaret; dear sister to Mary Lou, nee Fandos, Mastorakos.

He earned an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago in 1950. Mike had a successful career in the restaurant business in St. Louis from 1951-1993. For 40 years he owned and operated Maryland Kitchens and Fandos' Fourth Street restaurants in downtown St. Louis, as well as a dozen others downtown and in Warson Woods throughout his career. Mike served terms as president of the Missouri Restaurant Association and its St. Louis chapter, leading the latter in 1960 during the integration of the city's restaurants. Mike lived a life filled with love, family and great friendships. His optimism and love of life lifted all those that came in contact with him. His passion for history and books informed them. And his love of Saturday morning breakfasts and ice cream nourished them. He will be missed and his memory carried by all he knew.
