Evangelo Agelopas, who retired as general open-hearth foreman at the Sparrows Point plant of the Bethlehem Steel Corp., died Sunday at North Arundel Hospital, where he was taken after having a heart attack while returning from the Eastern Shore.
Services for Mr. Agelopas, who was 68 and lived on Portship Road in Dundalk, were being held today at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 520 S. Ponca St.
He retired in 1983, with the title of general foreman-steelmaking, after working for more than 32 years at the steel mill.
A native of Sabraton, W. Va., who was reared in Monessen, Pa., and in Baltimore, he attended Ohio State University and completed his education at a technical school in Washington.
During World War II, he served with the Army in Italy and as a demolitions specialist with Office of Strategic Services units in Greece and Yugoslavia.
He is survived by his wife, the former Sophia Hartoularis; two daughters, Valerie Sitaras of Hopewell Junction, N.Y., and Stephanie Agelopas of Bel Air; a son, Michael Agelopas of Baltimore; and two grandchildren.
