Angelos was born to his parents Athanassios and Paraskevi Dalekos on September 25, 1940 in Athens, Greece.
After he graduated from the Marine Academy Aspropyrgos in 1960, Angelos served in the Greek Navy and then as a 2nd Class Marine Engineer for the Greek Merchant Marines. He sailed the world during this time and had amazing adventures, made lifetime friendships and even spent a night in a Cuban jail!
He was enamoured by, and later married his love Yolanda Dalekos in 1968. Together, they struck out on another adventure moving to Canada for a better life. They finally settled in Calgary, Alberta where he became a successful entrepreneur and businessman who was well respected by the community.
