So very sorry to hear of your loss of Tasso. He was bigger than life! I loved his enjoyment of music & dancing at Chautauqua always with a twinkle in his eyes.

Obituary for Tasso Spanos

Tasso Spanos 1932-2021

Tasso Spanos

09/17/1932 - 05/02/2021

Tasso George Spanos, age 88, went to his eternal rest on May 2, 2021.

 

Tasso was the beloved husband of Rebecca for almost 60 years; father to Mark (Toni) and Matthew (Joanna); Papou to Benjamin and Mairen.  

 

Tasso was a Renaissance man. He graduated from Bucknell University with a BS in Biology and then attended the University of North Carolina’s Bacteriology master’s program. He founded Opus One, an audio store, which allowed him to meet many of his musical icons.  

 

Tasso loved to dance, any time, and in almost every style. He would perform traditional Greek dances, waltz, and swing – and was always ready to learn something new.  

 

Following a severe illness abroad, Tasso discovered that trigger point myotherapy could restore his muscular health. He went through additional training, and helped found the Pittsburgh School of Pain Management. He also taught stretch classes throughout Pittsburgh, and at the Chautauqua Institution in New York State. He never stopped trying to help people, even offering suggestions for stretches to his doctors as they, in turn, tried to help heal a heart stretched to its limit after 88 years of service to others.
 

Tasso’s funeral service will be held at St. Andrews Anglican Church, 7521 South Old State Rd. in Lewis Center, Ohio, at 11 AM Saturday, May 15. Visitation will be from 9-11 AM at the Church. Private interment to follow at a later date.
