† DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT
Victor Chris Satanas
(from Pendayia, Cyprus)
It is with great sadness that our beloved Victor Chris Satanas passed away on Wednesday June 24th after losing a long battle with cancer aged 76.
Victor was born in Pendayia, Cyprus in 1944, he was the youngest of eight siblings. At 16 years old, he left his parents Christos and Asineta and ventured to Nicosia to work and live. At 24 years old, his passion for life and adventure lead him to move London in 1968. Victor travelled all around the world seeing and experiencing different cultures, as a music lover one of his greatest memories was attending Woodstock in 1969.
In the early 70s he studied Fashion Design at Central St Martin’s in London, while living in Hampstead. As a successful designer and manufacturer, Victor launched his own labels DeSoVic Fashions in 1977 and Mariann Ross in the mid-80s. While building his career and businesses, Victor met his beautiful soulmate Demetra Stylianaki in 1975 and wed a year later. They had their first child Solon in 1977, then daughter Marianna in 1979.
The two things apart from his family that Victor adored was his home Cyprus that he frequently visited and his Arsenal. Not a day went by where is wasn’t watching a game from the present or the past.
Victor was a kind soul with a massive heart. He would go above and beyond for his family and friends, he made everyone feel loved. He enjoyed life and wanted everyone around him to enjoy it too. He leaves behind his wife and children as well as daughter-in-law Soulla and grandchildren Matheo, Gabriel and Maria Satanas.
