Passing of Gus Xikis - 15 April

Gus Xikis
August 23, 1953 - April 15, 2020


It is with sadness to inform everyone that we lost yesterday our good friend, Gus Xikis. Gus chaired the National Cup Committee for many years while also serving as President of the Long Island Soccer Football League and Vice President of the Eastern New York State Soccer Association. Gus was survived by his wife Candace, his children Emilio and Dina and grandchildren.

Due to the current situation, there will not be a wake or funeral for the public. The family will hold a memorial service when the opportunity allows. The family asks that flowers or baskets not be sent. Cards may sent to the address listed below from the announcement sent out by LISFL.

Michael Lewis wrote a tribute to Gus that can be found at Front Row Soccer.

Below is the message sent out by LISFL. Please keep Gus and his family in your prayers.
