He served with the Federal Government for 30 years in Arlington, Virginia, as a Senior Level Contracting Officer and Procurement Policy Director with the Federal Supply Service, General Services Administration. He received numerous awards during his distinguished career with the federal government including the Excellence in Administration Award for saving the military millions of dollars in a series of specialized contracts and the “Hammer Award” from VP Al Gore for streamlining the acquisition process. His efforts as policy director also greatly expanded the federal GSA Schedules Program. He was a member of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing and was one of the first federal employees to be a Certified Public Purchasing Officer.

From 1966 to 1970, he served in the armed forces and was a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War and served in the Air Force. He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion. He was a 4th Degree member of the Knights of Columbus. He received the Knights of Columbus Family of the Year Award and Knight of the Year Award at the George Brent Council.

In retirement, he served as a counselor to small businesses at the University of NC Charlotte for six years with the Small Business and Technology Development Center. He received an award from the Small Business Administration for his efforts in promoting small business development in North Carolina.

Nick was a member of All Saints Catholic Church, Manassas, VA, for 24 years, and a member of St. Therese Catholic Church for 14 years. He was the bone marrow donor for Carly Scherer, who beat cancer and held a special place in his heart, and he was active in supporting the national marrow donor program by volunteering to present educational presentations about the program.

Nick is preceded in death by his parents, Mary and Michael, and his in laws, Brian and Claire O’Hanlon.

Nick is survived by his wife of over 37 years, Annemarie; seven children and four grandsons: Mary (Mike) Walker of Boone, NC, and their sons Killian and Cormac; Michael (Gillian) Economou of Falls Church, VA, and their sons Nicholas and Jack; Christina (Nesbitt) Economou of Clover, SC; Beth Economou (Kyle Anson) of Charlotte, NC; John, 21 and Luke, 19, of Boone, NC and Julie, 14; brother, George Economou of CA; sister Irene Economou of CA; 15 nieces and nephews: Cruz Conrad; lots of O’Hanlons: Brian, Katie Bertsche, Meaghan Futscher, James, Claire, Matthew, Liam, Mick, Maggie, Laura and Ella; and Bagot boys: Zach, Nick and Patrick.

Nick’s greatest happiness, joy and inspiration were his wife and children. He was proud of each of them: Mary, Michael, Tina, Beth, John, Luke and Julie. His wife, Annemarie, was his everything.

The family of Nicholas Economou wishes to extend our sincere thanks to all our family and friends who supported us during Nick’s illness.
