Obituary of Vasilios S. Paleokostas
Vasilios “Bill” Paleokostas, 64, passed away on November 14, 2020 in Morristown, NJ. He was born May 3, 1956 in Paravola, Greece to Sotirios and Vasiliki (Patlias) Paleokostas. He is predeceased by his wife of 40 years, Zoe.
Bill immigrated with his wife to the United States in 1980. He was co-owner of The Plaza Diner in Bloomfield, NJ for over 30 years.
His greatest joy in life was family, which he valued over everything.
