Obituary

Christe Alexander Kocoves, of St. Clair Shores, MI, passed away on February 9, 2019 surrounded by his loving nieces and nephews. He was born in Detroit on June 14, 1930 and as Christe would say, he was in his 89th year.

Christe was preceded in death by his parents, Alex and Evanthia, his sister Mary Larson and his brother Gus Kocoves. He was the loving uncle of the late Larry (Karie) Larson, Tom (Akiko) Larson, Jack Larson, Jim (Carol) Larson, Lisa (Greg) Brown, Don Larson, Keith (Ronda) Larson, Chris (Roseann) Larson, Gary (Mary) Larson, Eva Kocoves, Cindy (Mark) Sikina, and Alex (Georgia) Kocoves.

Christe proudly served in the U.S. Army as a Corporal in the Korean War. He worked as a glass inspector at Chrysler's McGraw Glass Plant for 30 years before retiring. Christe was a devout and lifelong member of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Detroit where he served on their Parish Council for many years. He was a member of the Masonic Fraternity for 37 years and held numerous officer positions with St. Nicholas Lodge #568 and Berkley Lodge #536. He was also a member of the Order of AHEPA since 1990 and a member of the Detroit Shriners. Christe enjoyed coffee and conversations with his "Masonic Square Club" buddies, every Monday at the local Ram's Horn restaurant. He loved watching cowboy movies, football, hockey, horse racing at Hazel Park racetrack and the dog races in Florida.
