The Honorable EARL JAMES CANTOS SR., Municipal Court Judge and active member of San Diego's civic, arts, and educational communities for decades, passed away in his home in San Diego, CA, on Sunday, March 11, 2012 at the age of 91. 
 
He was born in San Diego on November 25, 1920 of Portuguese and Greek descent, the son of Theodore and Hilda (Sears) Cantos, and graduated from Hoover High School and San Diego State University. He enlisted in the US Army during World War II, serving on active duty in both the European and Pacific Theaters in a demolitions unit as a sub-machine gun expert, and also serving as an entertainment/band director. Upon leaving the Army, he moved to Los Angeles where he worked as an actor, including roles in radio programs such as “Gunsmoke”. In 1947, he met and married Irene Trifiatis, where they were both working in the entertainment industry. They eventually moved back to San Diego; Earl earned a law degree from Balboa University School of Law (now California Western University) while continuing to write and perform in local radio and theater.
 
He practiced law for 10 years, serving as president of the San Diego County Bar Association. He was appointed to the Municipal Court bench in 1963 by then-Gov. Pat Brown and served as Presiding Municipal Court Judge and president of the California Judges Association. Judge Cantos was active in leadership in diverse areas of the San Diego community. He was a board member of 16 different civic/community groups including the Armed Services YMCA, Goodwill Industries, Big Brothers of San Diego, the Chamber of Commerce. California Community Colleges, Metropolitan Transit Development Board, the First San Diego Courthouse, the Cabrillo Festival, and the Old Globe Theater. He was also active in California Republican Party politics as a campaign manager for many candidates, notably Congressman Bob Wilson.
 
From the late 1940s through the 1960s, Cantos was closely associated with Starlight Opera (San Diego Civic Light Opera), first as an actor, then as board member and president. His lifelong love of show business manifested itself in appearances as an emcee and public speaker; he also lectured on various topics, including examining the trial of Jesus from a legal perspective.  He retired from the bench in 1983 and continued to be active in the community while devoting more time to his love for golf, gardening, and travel. He maintained involvement with the law by working in arbitration, and served briefly as Bankruptcy Court trustee in the J. David Dominelli investment fraud case. In 2007 & 2008, he returned to the stage as a performer in “Senior Follies” at the East County Performing Arts Center.
 
He is survived by Irene, his wife of 65 years; four children, Rita Cartwright (husband Robert), Fr. Earl Cantos (wife Presvytera Carol), Roxanne Fulkerson (husband Jeff), and Bill Cantos (wife Mari); and five grandchildren, Heather Cartwright Dickey (husband Mark), Aimee Cartwright, Jeffrey Fulkerson (wife Emily), Trevor Fulkerson and Wesley Fulkerson. 
 
Services will be held at Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church, located at 3459 Manchester Ave, Encinitas (Cardiff), CA 92007. Trisagion Service, Thursday, March 15th at 7:00 pm with viewing from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Church. The Funeral Service will be celebrated Friday, March 16th at 11:00 am (pre-sanctified liturgy at 9:00 am); Mercy Meal and celebration of life program will follow.
 
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church.
