He is predeceased by his father, George, and nephew Darren. George was dedicated to his work in the Office Furniture Industry for over three decades where he made many lifelong friends and some who are family. He was always generous with anything he had including his time. He was compassionate and cared for the needs of his partner, Kathy for which her family is forever grateful. He was the boss of the grill and he enjoyed time with family and friends over a good meal. He was a lifelong fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and NASCAR. He will be remembered with love for his generous heart, candor, wit and humorous personality. He loved his children and grandchildren. Whenever possible there was pizza and a sleepover at Grandpa's. We would like to honor his memory and hope that he knows he will be missed by all. Peace be with you, George. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Kathy, Mike, and Todd who cared and comforted him to the end.
