Andi Flava Obituary, Andi Flava Has Passed Away – Death Cause
- Isabella Mia
Andi Flava Obituary, Death – Our brother Andi DJ Flava was a member of the Demolition Rollers, and we say our final goodbye to him with a heavy heart. He left this world much too soon, which took us off guard and was a complete and utter surprise… may he rest in peace, brother. Decades ago, when we were building a Drum & Bass culture in the South, the ‘Deo Rollers’ disseminated the Jungle gospel in the middle of the country, and we played many raves together. This is so depressing and unjustifiable.
Chafos was born in Rochester, Minnesota on June 21, 1936 to parents Andrew K. and Margaret A. Chafos. She was the third of five children and spent her childhood in the southeast part of Rochester. She started her education at Hawthorn Elementary School, continued on to Central Junior High School, and ultimately earned her diploma from Rochester High School in 1954. She cherished the memories she had of her Rochester childhood spent with her pals. Andi Pathoulas got married to Nick Pathoulas on September 2, 1956, however they ended up getting divorced later.
At the time that she was married to Nick, she and her husband were the owners of Outskirts Bar-B-Que, which eventually changed its name to Nick’s Ribs and Other Good Things, Inc., and operated from 1976 until 1990. During the many years that she worked in the restaurant industry, she had a variety of positions, including those of hostess and cashier, and she was especially renowned for her homemade desserts. While she wasn’t directing guests to their seats, Andi could be found consoling a fussy infant so that the parents may continue to enjoy their lunch.
She discovered that taking care of her elderly mother brought her a lot of happiness in her later years. Andi thoroughly enjoyed getting together with her friends, many of whom she had known since elementary school, at Grandma’s Kitchen on Wednesday afternoons for a cup of coffee. Her favorite things to do with her friends included going to “The Home,” also known as Fontaine Towers, to play cards and bingo, and attending Rochester High School reunions, where she would always wear the red and black colors of her school. Andi was really pleased with her six grandchildren and enjoyed telling the story of how she went from having no grandchildren to having six in a little under two years.
Survivors include son, Tom (Karen) Pathoulas of Mantorville, MN; daughter, Kula (Tom) Shives of Rochester; six grandchildren: James Pathoulas of Boston, MA, Nick Pathoulas of Palo Alto, CA, Joe Pathoulas and Chris Pathoulas of Farmington, CT, Ariana Shives of Seal Beach, CA, and T Connor Shives of Denver, CO; sister, Nikki (Robert) Stephanopoulos of Cleveland, OH; two brothers, Gus Chafos of Rochester, and Pete (Angie) Chafos of Rochester. Her parents and her sister, Kal Stanley, passed away before her. She did not survive them.
