Class Memorial Pages\H-1 Mike Xenos.pdf

Our classmate, Michael J. Xenos, died on Tuesday, November 28, 2000, at the Hospice of Northern Virginia, Arlington, Virginia. Mike succumbed after a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer.

Mike was born in Greece on March 22, 1936, but considered Seattle, Washington, his hometown. After graduating from high school, he joined the Army and rose to the rank of Corporal. He attended the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School at Stewart Air Force Base in 1956–1957 where he was a squad leader and the Prep School detachment representative to the Pointer View. The Prep School yearbook highlights Mike’s penchant for “harassing the troops” as he was often heard commanding, “All right, keep it at EASE!”
As the 1961 Howitzer states, Mike 
“. . . was well known to all as a varsity manager. His academic fortunes ran the gamut of success, from a harrowing experience with the English Department to some ‘solid’ victories over the Department of Mechanics. His selflessness and generosity have won him a group of loyal friends.” 
Mike, Elaine, and family truly appreciate the many expressions of concern from his classmates during his illness.
Upon graduation, Mike was commissioned in the Signal Corps. After many significant staff and command assignments, including command of the 8th Signal Battalion, Mike retired in 1980. In retirement, Mike worked for Boeing Computer Services and the BDM Corporation before starting his own company, Sonex Enterprises, Inc.
Mike was buried with full honors at Arlington National Cemetery. 
Mike is survived by his devoted wife, Elaine; sons, John, Dean, Christopher, and Andreas; and six grandchildren. Condolences can be sent to Elaine and family at 3902 Ridgelea Drive, Fairfax, VA 22031. 
Mike, your classmates salute you for a job “Well Done! Be thou at peace.” 
— Ed Brown, USMA 1961
