Nicholas J. Kamberalis

Nicholas James Kamberalis passed on Oct. 7 in peace and surrounded by his family and friends at his home in Don Pedro. He was born Aug. 27, 1927, in Haverhill, Mass.

While in Massachusetts, he worked for Western Electric. He then married and moved to California in 1964 and became owner of a Signal service station.

After a short move to Colorado where he worked for IBM, he returned to California and opened an Exxon service station in Cupertino. He retired in 1990 and moved to Don Pedro, where he enjoyed traveling, boating and spending time with his family and friends.

Mr. Kamberalis is survived by his wife of 48 years, Doris; his eight children: Nancy, Jimmy, Joe, Nick, Holly, Terri, Debbie and Michael; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and his sister, Koula Frangos.

His legacy of honesty and values lives on through his family. He was a man of few words but many deeds. He was a mentor and a friend. His family sees him now with a warm cup of coffee, a box of doughnuts and a smile, opening his shop every morning.

“We will not let him down. He will live on through us, and everyone else he touched. Some people exist in this world. Our Papoo truly lived. We love you Papoo,” his family wrote.

A private service was held in Hughson for the family.
