  • On October 30, 2021

Michael T. Climes, 86, of Brownsville, PA, formerly of Bethel Park, passed away on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. Michael was born in Campbell Ohio on July 15, 1935 to the late Theophilos and Nomiki Climes.  He is preceded in death by his loving sisters, Madaline Saris and Caliope Kelly and brother-in-law, Ron Kelly.

Michael is survived by his dearly beloved wife of 59 years, Virginia Climes, his three children; Nicole (Paul) Hinnebusch; Michael (Laurie) Climes, Becky (Dean) Papciak; his brother George (Judy) Climes and many loving nieces and nephews.

Michael’s grandchildren were his pride and joy. He was so proud of each of them and never missed an opportunity to share photos or tell everyone he met everything about them; Joshua (Julia Balandiat), Kelly, and Sara Michael Hinnebusch, Alexis (Brandi Krivansky), Nicholas and Christopher Climes, Justin, Aiden and Jude Papciak.

Michael cherished his family above all else.  He was a friend, a dad and Papou to all. He was a great story teller especially when it came to his Greek heritage.  He was an avid sports fan and had a love for history and the opera.  He loved all of God’s creatures, especially his dogs. His favorite past-time was scratching scratch-off lottery tickets.

Michael was a veteran and served in the United States Air Force for 4 years.

Mr. Climes, My adolescence would not have been complete had you not been such an important part of it. You will forever be viewed in my mind’s eye: unruly curls under a Greek fisherman’s cap. Giant smile. And the shine of a naughty twinkle in your eyes. Rest peacefully.
