·

South Australia’s infamous seafood king Michael Angelakis has opened up about his 68-year-old brother Nick passing away.

The head of the popular seafood hotspot in Adelaide ‘Angelakis Bros. seafood company’ shared with The Advertiser that his younger brother had died last month due to complications during surgery.

Nick was on oxygen 24/7 and was on a register for a lung transplant. As soon as one came in, he rushed from Adelaide to Melbourne for the operation but did not survive the surgery.

Michael is now calling on people to consider organ donation.

“(Nick) was incredibly brave, all he thought about was other people and he’d encourage other people to be organ donors and just how important it is to be donors,” he said.

“It’s always tough losing the youngest sibling… but you don’t want anyone to suffer.”
