LONG ISLAND : Michael Economos, 55, actuary and actor
Michael Economos was an actuary by day and an actor by night, "dazzling" Long Island community theater audiences with his high-energy musical performances, those who knew him said.
The Garden City father of three died Dec. 24, just eight months after a brain tumor diagnosis. He was 55.
"It's a comfort to all that he is at peace now," said his wife of 20 years, Christine Economos, 55. "He'll be in everybody's hearts forever and, wherever we go, he is going to be with us."
