The "real Donutman" passed away.
« on: September 20, 2016, 02:04:47 PM »
I just read a comment on facebook by the daughter of Eleftherios Spanakakis that her father died last night.
I will never forget his voice coming closer and closer over the beach: "Extraaa Vitamina!"
Rest in peace or have a good live in heaven!

He will be missed. So many of the years listening to the phrases!

Saddened to hear the news.  We had been missing his cheeky comments ever since he had to stop a few years ago.  Rest in peace.

Very sad indeed - what an amazing character !
We were lucky enough to see him in July this year.

Hi mandmshow,

Just so you don't get a shock if you go back next year, and are served doughnuts by the same person as this year, the "real" doughnut man became too ill to continue a few years ago and had to give up.  The current doughnut man you would have met this summer is a relative, I believe, and I assume is still alive and well.

Came across a picture of Eleftherios, taken back in 2009. So sad he has passed away, happy memories
