! History Of This Beautiful Estate And The Family !
Two extraordinary people built this house and created a lifetime of memories and collections that spanned the globe.
Husband, Father, Enterpreneur, Businessman, Family Patriarch and well respected by the community. The husband was owner and president of a business specializing in detecting shoplifting and employee theft. His company was on the cutting edge of there field and worked with many major companies across this country.
He loved playing golf and it was his favorite past time. He was born and raised in San Francisco, served three years in the Marine Corps, achieving the rank of lieutenant. In 1947, he opened Commercial Service Systems, a company that helped businesses stop existing theft problems and trained their personnel to handle such problems. The company expanded to six other offices in the Western United States, serving all the major chain grocery and drug stores.
The husband was a member of several organizations including Axios, a social and philanthropic group of Greek businessmen, and the Sportsmen, a Greek golfing club. He presided over many family reunions and was known for his generosity and wisdom in helping other family members.
Wife: Mother, Angel Patron of the Musical Arts :
Born in San Francisco, this gorgeous soprano opera singer migrated with her family to Los Angeles, were she met her future husband at church. It was love at first sight. They were engaged two weeks later and married three months later. Then for the next four years, the husband went off to serve as a Lietenant in the Marine Corps during World War II. During that time, the wife who sang Opera as a soprano earned a livelihood singing light opera in San Diego and performing in prestigious locations, such as the Shrine Auditorium in downtown Los Angeles and various churches. She also did a screen test for MGM.
The two beloveds never stopped communicating during those war years, as evidenced by hundreds of passionate love letters. When he returned, they began their life together in a humble studio apartment with a kitchen in a closet. Soon after reuniting, they became parents of two children and later grandparents to three grandchildren. While the wife gave up her formal career to raise her children and support her husband as he grew his business, she continued to sing for events at Saint Sophia, schools, charity events, weddings and funerals. In 1965 through 1967, she served as Philoptohos President, a charitable organization of St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Church. The church honored her as Mother of the Year in 1987.
She continued to dedicated her life and contribute to good causes. She served as a fundraiser for the Music Center and the Disney Hall for many years, earning her a plaque in the Disney Hall garden. She also served in the Opera Guild, Etude Club and Encore, to support new talent in the musical arts. They now are both gone but not forgotten by everyone who loved them and there family.
